NWRL is proud to launch the year long Geek the Library campaign.  This community-based campaign will raise the awareness of the importance of library funding.  Stop by your local NWRL branch and see what we're geeking!

Have you visited the redesigned website, created by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Investor Education Foundation and the American Library Association (ALA)?  A key feature of the new website is a more engaging user experience with enhanced search and navigation that leads to dozens of library-led adult and children’s program models to help you get started or expand programming that reaches your target audiences.  These sustainable models help children and adults  learn about money, how  to save for college and develop a budget, and plan for retirement.  Program resources are arranged by audience and topic showcasing ideas and a creative mix of multi-media tools to help libraries reach out to community partners.
