Kids are a big part of what Money Smart Week is all about. The annual program this year runs April 23 to April 30 and promotes the importance of financial literacy with free programming for all ages. Programs this year created especially for kids and teens include:
Kids ages 2 to 6 and their parents are invited to I Got Rhythm, at 10 a.m. Saturday, January 23, at the Fond du Lac Public Library. Kids will explore songs, dancing and fun musical instruments, as well as books and stories. The program is free. No registration required.
