Library hosts money class for kids

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -   The Jonesboro Public Library held its first money class for kids on Monday night.

The group talked about saving money, learning how to set at goal and achieve it.

Youth Services Manager Kay Taylor said kids get money in different ways and parents wanted a way to teach them about how to best manage it.

"The tooth fairy comes to visit, they get money for their birthday.  They don't need to just squander it away over in the corner, maybe they need to open a savings account." Taylor said.

The children who attended the event went home with a new piggy bank.
