Since March 2004, when the U.S. Senate passed Resolution 316 officially recognizing April as National Financial Literacy Month, organizations including libraries have provided resources and training for youth and adults. ALA’s Money Smart Week® initiative in partnership with the Federal Reserve Bank (Chicago) offers many ideas and tools for bringing sound financial information to the public.  MeL databases can help too.  All of the following MeL databases contain information on investment, personal finances, real-life math, taxation, savings, banking, and related topics:  eBook Collection, Gale Virtual Reference Library, Research in Context, Britannica School, and Gale Legal Forms.  April 23-30, 2016 is designated ALA’s Money Smart Week®.
Michigan residents or Michigan library access only.
MeL Minutes are brought to you by the Library of Michigan.  Want more information on MeL?  Stay tuned for next week’s MeL Minute available on many Michigan library listservs, email us at contact@mel.org or visit mel.org.  We encourage you to share MeL Minutes with your public service colleagues.
