Sign Up for Healthcare at the Library

by: 
Rebecca

Fall brings up many thoughts for people – cooler weather, pumpkin spice lattes, health insurance. That last one can cause a great deal of stress for people if they aren’t offered coverage through their employer. If you’re thinking of navigating through the options available under the Affordable Care Act, we will once again have staff from Jeffco Human Services available to assist you at the Belmar Library. They will give your some background on the program, and if you’re ready, sign you up through the Connect for Health Colorado online marketplace.

Appointments aren’t required, but can be made by calling 303-271-4691.

Boggled by the Ballot?

by: 
Bethany

Just like taxes, each year election season rolls around. And just like taxes, each year I get stressed out about it. What’s on the ballot and what does it means for me? I know I’m not the only person who feels this way. Luckily, there are folks like Active Minds who are here to help us translate the ballot language into words we can actually understand and tell us objectively about the arguments on each side of any given measure. Drop in for a quick rundown of the ballot issues and a look at what the yes or no vote for each will mean.

Get Your Business Up and Running

by: 
Bethany

So often in conversations, I hear people say "I wish I could just quit my job and go into business for myself." "What's stopping you?" I usually ask. Turns out, like many others, it's that they don't know where to start. If this sounds like you, we are here to help. 

If you've been thinking of starting a new business or growing your budding business, you will benefit from a series of Business Education Series Training (BEST) classes presented by the Jeffco Business Resource Center.

Attend one or all three classes. Registration is suggested by calling 303-235-5275.
