Belgrade City Library’s programme on financial literacy

Public Libraries hold a key position in the communities they serve and one of their challenges is the design of programmes that meet the needs of the citizens. Belgrade City Library is a good example of this: in these days of global crisis, they have launched a financial literacy training programme called The Novcici (‘Coins’) through a largely visited website (almost 100 visits per day in 2011/12): in the two years that has been active, 3.500 high school students attended financial literacy workshops and, in 2012, won an EIFL-PLIP Innovation Award for contribution to economic wellbeing of the community.
