What do you think of when you hear the words Book Club? A group of moms, sitting around someone's coffee table, discussing the latest chick lit? Or maybe a group of teens, sipping Starbucks and waxing prophetically?

Well, here at JCPL , we have our own kind of book club, and KIDS may apply!

Not only do you get to read a great book and share your thoughts about it with other kids, you also get to do a fun activity that relates to the book. Zen gardens, creating your own cartoon, quiz shows, scavenger hunts, and making Rube Goldberg machines are just a few of the things we have done so far. And what kids meeting would be complete without a snack?

Check out what your local library will be doing this month:

Parking Lot Replacement at Columbine

by: 
Bethany

Beginning Sept. 30, you'll probably notice some work being done on the Columbine Library parking lot. Portions of the lot will be closed as the work takes place. We anticipate that it will take a few weeks to get everything done – this is, of course, all dependent on the weather. During this time, the express drop-off lane will be closed for a portion of the time. The library, however, will remain open. 

Thanks in advance for your patience as we improve the parking at Columbine.  

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.

Hello! It's Nice To Meet You (Again).

Books. Everyone knows the library has them. Have you gone outside your comfort zone and tried all the other resources the library has to offer? We invite you to get Outside the Lines with us next week and try something new. We'll share how each day next week on Facebook and Twitter

Outside the Lines is a weeklong celebration, Sept. 14-20, demonstrating the creativity and innovation happening in libraries. Libraries across the country will be engaging with their communities in new and unexpected ways. Stay tuned for how you can participate. 

Planning for Your Senior's Future

by: 
Bethany

Recently, I've watched as my grandparents' health has deteriorated and they have moved from their home of more than 40 years into a retirement community. The transition was hard for everyone – my grandparents, their children, and me. I'm now watching as the same thing is happening to my aunt and we struggle to do what is best for her – and for us. 

As much as my family thought we had planned ahead and started conversations with our seniors early in the process, these transitions still happened after several crises had occurred – too late. What we learned is that you can never plan too far in advance and it's best to educate yourself and your seniors before a crisis occurs that forces a decision upon all of you. 

Those of you caring for aging parents, or any senior adult, will benefit greatly from a workshop we are offering with "The Senior Expert" Karen Owen-Lee. She will cover legal and financial issues, crisis warning signs, making a family plan, and having the difficult, but necessary, conversations with your loved ones. The workshops will take place at several locations over the next month.
