Financial Education Materials for Libraries

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently launched an initiative to put free financial education materials into community libraries.

The initiative started over a year ago by gathering feedback from a group of librarians. The number of libraries that wanted to participate quickly swelled to over 100 library systems. These 100 systems have more than 450 branches and receive more than 76 million visits a year.

Website with Resources
As part of the initiative, the CFPB has developed a webpage where librarians can obtain program ideas, online resources, and free government publications.

You can access the resources at
