School is about to start, and that means kids will be back in math class. In a time when understanding math is paramount to lifelong success, many children have negative attitudes about math and even suffer from math anxiety. Join the CEO/Founder of Teacher's Professional Resource, Debra Hansen, to learn what steps you can take to create a positive math environment for your kids, and how positive math experiences at home will lead to increased math confidence and success in school. Learn how to talk with your kids about math, curb YOUR anxiety about math, help with homework, play games, and make math fun for the whole family.

Gregory Hill Returns to Jeffco

by: 
Bethany

If you missed local author Gregory Hill when he was in Conifer in June, you're in luck! He will be visiting the Lakewood Library's Thursday Night Book Group at 6 p.m. Aug. 5. He will discuss his book East of Denver

Mixing pathos and humor in equal measure East of Denver is an unflinching novel of rural America, a poignant, darkly funny tale about a father and son finding their way together as their home and livelihood inexorably disappears. 

The event is free and open to the public.

Small Businesses & the Affordable Care Act

by: 
Bethany

One struggle many small business owners have is determining if they can provide health insurance for their employees. Of course, everyone wants to, but it's not always possible. Luckily, there's an option that you may not know about. 

The Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) Marketplace makes it possible for small businesses to provide qualified health plans to their employees under the Affordable Care Act. This year, the SHOP Marketplace is open to employers with 50 or fewer full-time equivalent employees (FTEs). You may also qualify for tax credits if you use SHOP.

A representative from The Small Business Majority, a national nonprofit, will be here to discuss the law, its provisions and how you may be able to benefit. Bring your questions!

Tax Help at JCPL

by: 
Bethany

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 will again be offering free tax assistance to our patrons. 

Each year,  we partner with AARP to offer free counseling and preparation assistance to all taxpayers, with special attention to those ages 60 and older. Beginning Feb. 1, IRS-certified volunteers will be at several library locations to help with any tax-related issues people may have. Space is limited for this popular series, so patrons are encouraged to arrive early. You'll need to make a reservation if you're planning to go to Evergreen or Golden

We also have several online resources, and limited copies of select State and Federal forms in our libraries. 

Good luck and happy filing!
