HEAR YE HEAR YE ALL BOOKWORMS, FANGIRLS, FANBOYS, OR ANY FANDOMINIONS OF THE SORT:

The time for the Teen Fandom Contest is nigh!!

Now that you are out of school (hopefully), you finally have the freedom to spend the days reading to your heart’s content, or binge watching shows on Netflix until three in the morning. Why not express that freedom by representing your favorite fandom?

Starting June 17, you can represent a fandom you love by entering the second annual Teen Fandome Contest. This contribution can be in a variety of formats:

-Written Stories 

-Poetry

-Visual Art

-Digital Format

-Videos

-Cosplay

- or something else! 

This is your chance to release your inner fangirl or fanboy through a creative project! Please submit your entry in person to the Lakewood Library’s Teen Librarian between June 17-July 17. All of the entries will be judged by the Teen Advisory Board on July 22. 

But of course, what’s a contest without a celebration? Join us at Lakewood Library for a Costume Party (come in a cosplay as your favorite character!) on Wednesday, July 22, at 6 p.m, where there will be food and the winner of the Fandom Contest will be announced. The winner will receive a $50 visa gift card. Imagine how many books/fandom merch you could get with that! 

Good Luck!

The Basics: Alzheimer's

by: 
cindy

Alzheimer's disease is not a normal part of aging although the greatest known risk factor is increasing age, and the majority of people with Alzheimer's are 65 and older. But Alzheimer's is not just a disease of old age. Up to 5 percent of people with the disease have early onset Alzheimer's (also known as younger-onset), which often appears when someone is in their 40s or 50s. If you or someone you know is affected by Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, come learn the facts. Presented by the Alzheimer's Association, this program provides information on detection, risk factors, stages of the disease, treatments and more.  This free class requires registration.

2 p.m.  Friday, March 27

It's Tax Time. Why Are These People Smiling?

by: 
Rebecca

Meet AARP Tax Advisor John Kure, AARP Tax Coordinator Gene McCracken, former Lakewood Librarian Sharon Partridge and Lakewood Library Patron Rick Caulfield. These folks had a very happy experience last year!

Rick came to the library for AARP Tax Help, and John and Gene helped him find $2,000 in missed deductions! In the course of their review of his tax return, they pointed out that Rick had missed a $500 pension deduction. They not only helped him get a larger return in 2014; they also helped him file amended tax returns for previous years, resulting in overall savings of $2,000!

Don't make the same mistake! 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, 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.
