FRAMINGHAM – The Massachusetts State Treasurer was the special guest at a story hour at the Christa McAuliffe Library in Framingham on Thursday morning.
State Treasurer Deb Goldberg teamed up with Massachusetts libraries this month to celebrate Financial Literacy Month in April.
She read Alexander, Who Used To Be Rich Last Sunday to a small group of youths yesterday, April 19.
The library branch had a display of books for children on money, as part of the celebration of financial literacy month. The Massachusetts Libraries and Goldberg’s office also recommended several books for youths and their parents.
Goldberg’s office of Economic Empowerment created a toolkit of online games and apps to teach kids and teens about financial literacy, as well as coloring sheets, which the youth did after the book reading.
