On May 18, 2011, H.R.H. Princess Maxima of the Netherlands was at the Velsen Library in IJmuiden, Netherlands to participate in the Wiser with Money Parade. The purpose of her visit is to encourage and educate those on how to deal with their personal finances effectively.
According to Belga:
The Wiser with Money Parade is a traveling exhibition about handling money that visits libraries across the land. During the exhibition, ‘ Moneyvents’ (events and workshops) are organised that educate people about their personal finances in an accessible and interactive way.
As the princess made her way into the Velsen library she was greeted by many well-wishers. Once inside she spoke with the library patrons, organizers of the event, and the many people who came to the library to learn more about money management and the traveling exhibit.
