Money affects all Americans, but many of us lack the knowledge we need to make smart financial choices that will prepare us for whatever the future brings. Thinking Money strives to teach tweens, teens and their parents, caregivers and educators about financial literacy topics—like saving, spending and avoiding fraud—in a way that is not only understandable, but fun.
Thinking Money is a museum-quality traveling exhibition that is traveling to 50 U.S. public libraries between 2016 and 2018. Framingham Public Library will be hosting it from December 13, 2016 through January 18, 2017. Through an adventure-themed storyline, interactive iPad content and other hands-on activities, the exhibition explores financial themes in an informative and fun way.
Thinking Money was created by the FINRA Investor Education Foundation in partnership with the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office.

Presented by the Framingham History Center: Whether you’re an engineer, a river watcher, historian or generally interested in goings on about town, you will want to join us for a presentation of photographs documenting the reconstruction of the Main St. bridge over the Sudbury River. What took 8 months to build in 1878 took 4 years in modern times – 2005-2009. Cliff Henrickson lived in the historic house on the Sudbury River next to the bridge and had a perfect vantage point to document the tearing down and reconstructing of the old bow string pony truss. Town Historian Fred Wallace will provide a brief history on the original construction (General George Gordon oversaw the project) followed by Cliff’s photographs.
Refreshments served. Suggested donation $5.00
