Workplace financial literacy educates the entire library staff on the financial and business aspects of the library. It is more than a budget workshop or vocabulary list. It is a vital part of the successful management of a modern library. Sharing financial information and developing an open culture encourages and enables staff to use financial and managerial information to improve the operations and functions of the library. The result is informed and engaged staff members who are fully vested in and take responsibility for the success of the library.
