Reading - Good for Your Future Education

It seems more and more people, including kids, are talking about money, whether it's the economy, personal finance or allowances! The Oregon State Treasurer and The Oregon College Savings Plan have teamed up to encourage this awareness through Reading is an Investment, a literacy and financial education program.

Elementary students (K-5th) can sign up for the program, track their reading and be entered into a drawing for $500 towards an Oregon College Savings Plan account. Twenty scholarships will be awarded in each of Oregon's five Congressional Districts.

How does it work? Check here for more information or stop by the library to pick up your reading log, instructions and booklist and get started!
