FINRA Investor Education Foundation and the American Library Association Announce Nearly $882,000 in Grants to Public Libraries to Support Grassroots Financial Literacy.

Thanks, Emily. I often fly off into theoretical ground but sometimes have practical insights. I appreciate any contributor who can help keep me grounded.
