Money as You Grow Bookshelf Series introduces children to important money skills through books

Don’t feel you have enough time, tools, or confidence to teach money skills to children? There is no need to be a money expert. Cornell Cooperative Extension and the Dormann Library have teamed up to offer tips and activities that can help your children’s money skills, habits and attitudes grow. A free four-session program, Money as You Grow Bookshelf will be held on Mondays, June 3, 10, 17 and 24 from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. at the Dormann Library, 101 West Morris Street, Bath.


The series of programs is aimed at children ages 6-10 and their parents/caregivers. Families will each receive a book to take home, healthy snacks and activities. Childcare, including snacks and activities, are also available on site for younger siblings.


The Money as You Grow Bookshelf will:

  • Provide help for parents and caregivers who are eager to build a good financial literacy foundation for their kids.
  • Teach easy building blocks for financial well-being: patience, planning and problem-solving.
  • Use children’s books to learn key money concepts through reading, play and quiet one-on-one talks.

Attendance at all four sessions is requested. This program is funded by the STLS Coordinated Service Advisory Council and developed by the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection. The workshop is free, but registration is required. Please call Tara at 607-776-4613 or email her at to reserve a space. For more information on this and related topics, visit
