Looking for something new and fun for you and your child to do at the Library?
Maybe you’d like to slip in a little something educational too?
Why not come down to Children’s and Parents’ Services and play one of our Money for Life games together with you child? Not only will you have some family fun but you will also learn about spending, sharing and saving money and your child will begin to learn basic financial principals.
We have many games and activities for children of varied ages available at the CAPS Desk with a Library card. We will hold your Library card while you have some fun playing one of our board games during your visit at the Library.
THESE GAMES ARE AVAILABLE TO PLAY IN THE LIBRARY:
ACTIVITY DOLLAR—FOR AGES 5-7 YEARS

Each of our games will teach children the importance of early money management and finance skills in a fun and engaging way.
These games are made possible by a grant from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Investor Education Foundation through Smart Investing @ your library, a partnership with the American Library Association.
Let the Patchogue-Medford Library CAPS Department be your child’s first step towards financial literacy! Come visit us soon! Be sure to borrow some books from our Money for Life book display so you can continue the discussion at home.
