Library Workshop Promotes Raising a Money Smart Child

MURRIETA, CA – A free workshop is being held at the Murrieta Public Library on Monday, April 7 at 6:00 p.m. that will show parents how to provide children with necessary, basic financial skills. Springboard Nonprofit Consumer Credit Management will present this one-hour workshop in the Library’s Community Room.

According to a recent financial survey conducted by Ipsos America, Inc., a leading market research company, nine out of ten (89 percent) U.S. parents think that they are an important resource for their children to learn basic money management. Unfortunately, less than four out of ten (36 percent) parents talk to their children about money management on a regular, weekly basis.

Early financial literacy is imperative and should begin at home. Topics such as using an allowance, opening a bank account, and the importance of a budget will be discussed.

The Murrieta Public Library is located at 8 Town Square (Adams Avenue and Kalmia Street). For more information about the program call (951) 304-BOOK (2665) or visit the Library’s web page at
