What better way to teach financial literacy than an escape room?! This presentation will share how two public libraries and a university finance educator combined forces to engage families with their money choices.

Attendees will gain insight into creating a unique program model, the knowledge necessary to sustain and recreate it, and an increased understanding of a successful public and academic collaboration.
