Community Education Project Launched by Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

April 10th, 2014 · No Comments

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), in coordination with its national and local partners, is developing a strategy to help public libraries become the go-to source for unbiased financial education and resources in their communities.  Why libraries?  Consumers may not know where to turn for unbiased help when facing a financial decision or problem and the public library is an important and trusted resource in the community.

Through the project, CFPB will:

  • Provide libraries with a collection of financial education programs, resources and tools
  • Help libraries identify and connect with local partners in their communities
  • Build an online community for local financial education librarians
  • Provide marketing support for financial education in libraries
  • Provide training for library staff and managers

To get involved, contact Senior Content Specialist Dan Rutherford or Strategic Partnerships and Outreach Coodinator Dubis Correal at  Please include Community Education Project in the subject line, and provide your name, library, and daytime contact information.
