Short Title
Financial Literacy: Partnerships and Pivoting to Virtual Programming in a Pandemic
Summary

How can we successfully offer virtual financial literacy programming to our patrons when we can't meet in person?

Description

Partnerships with community organizations can often enhance the financial literacy programming that libraries can offer their patrons themselves.

In this webinar, Careers & Finance Librarian Marty Johannes will talk about the Women & Money series that Johnson County (KS) Library presents each year in partnership with Housing & Credit Counseling, Inc. The series covers a range of topics — from budgeting and credit reports to investing and simple estate planning — all presented by staff from government or non-profit agencies. Johannes will also detail the challenges and silver linings of pivoting to offer the series virtually this year, due to COVID-19.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will:

  • Learn tips to enhancing their libraries' financial literacy programming
  • Learn some of the challenges of pivoting to virtual programming and how to overcome them
  • Gain an understanding of how virtual programming can be beneficial to all
