Earth Smart, Money Smart

April 21, 2018 @ 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Helping save the environment can help save money.  Come explore economics and recycling for a better future.

During this event, Northern Illinois University economics instructor and Co-Director of NIU’s Center for Economic Education Tammy Batson will read a children’s book that teaches a basic economic concept.  After the story, children can participate in activities and an art project based on the book.   (Other books that teach economic and financial literacy concepts will be on display and available for checkout.)

This FREE event is intended for children in elementary grades.  Teachers are also welcome.  No registration is needed to attend this program!

For additional information, please contact Theresa at or (815) 756-9568 ext. 3350.
