Golden Author VisitLocal author Joanna Walters will join the Golden Library to read from her book, Girl At Sea: Stories of Courage, Growth and Strength From One of the First Women to Serve on US Warships. We'll host a discussion and Q&A after the readings.

Joanna Walters is a 1994 graduate of the US Naval Academy. She was a Division I swimmer for Navy. Upon graduation, she went on to become one of the first women serving aboard combatants as a Surface Warfare Officer.

Joanna spends her downtime enjoying the mountains with her family and can often be found climbing the cliffs of North Table Mountain, running or riding the trails, hiking to the top of 14ers and playing in the snow.

If you like keeping your hard-earned money, let AARP's certified tax advisors help you with your tax returns this year.

Beginning in February, the Library and AARP will provide free tax counseling and preparation assistance to all taxpayers, with special attention to those ages 60 and older. IRS-certified volunteers will be on hand at our Arvada, Belmar, Columbine, Golden, Evergreen, Lakewood and Standley Lake Libraries to help you with tax-related questions through April 15. Space is limited for each session and participants are encouraged to arrive early. Please note: appointments are required at the Evergreen Library. For specific dates and times, select a location below:

Arvada Library

Belmar Library

Columbine Library

Evergreen Library

Golden Library

Lakewood Library

We have a limited selection of printed copies of State and Federal tax forms and instruction books will be available at all JCPL locations while supplies last. To print and order state or federal forms and to find more tax help information, visit our Tax Guide.

Benjamin Franklin once said, "...nothing is said to be certain, except libraries helping with your taxes." Ok, so that isn't exactly what he said, but it has a ring of truth to it and tax season is here. But fear not, dear countrymen, the Library and AARP will again be offering free tax assistance to our patrons.

Happy filing!
