Money Talks, But Do You Know What It's Saying? Financial Literacy @ HCPL for Houston Money Week

There are a lot of parents who dread having The Talk with their kids a lot less than they do talking to them about money. Why is that? Maybe it's because so many of us feel insecure about our own financial literacy. Harris County Public Library and the organizers of Houston Money Week (HMW) are here to say that there is no shame in admitting you don’t know everything, only in stumbling along pretending that you do.

Houston Money Week (HMW) is a community-wide financial education initiative that empowers families and individuals to be successful in making financial choices. HMW serves individuals, families, veterans and small business owners across the greater Houston area, offering free financial education events and raising awareness of community resources.

HMW runs April 1 – 8, and HCPL branches will be hosting financial literacy programs for all ages.
