Homebound Services Extended to Jeffco's Westminster Residents

by: 
Bethany

Great news for Westminster residents who live in the Jeffco part of the city - we are partnering with the Westminster Public Library to extend homebound services to that part of the county. JCPL’s Homebound Service is for people who are unable to come to a library due to a permanent condition or temporary condition lasting longer than three months. Through this service, we arrange for the delivery of library materials via home delivery or by mail.

Westminster is interesting when it comes to library services:

  • The City of Westminster provides library services at westminsterlibrary.org and through two locations, the College Hill Library and the Irving Street Library.
  • Jefferson County residents living in Westminster are also served by JCPL via jeffcolibrary.org and two libraries located in nearby Arvada - Arvada and Standley Lake Libraries.
  • Adams County residents living in Westminster are also served by Rangeview Library District. Adams County residents would not qualify for JCPL’s homebound services.

Jefferson County residents living in Westminster may apply for JCPL’s Homebound Services online or call 303-275-6161. Homebound Library Service applications are also available at both Westminster Public Library locations.

A boy stands in his room and then the world is destroyed.  Okay, so that isn't exactly what happens in Homestuck, a web comic written, illustrated, and animated by Andrew Hussie, but it’s not far from the truth. 

Meet John and his three friends Rose, Dave, and Jade.  They decide to play a game called Sburb only to find out that it destroys their world.  Now they need to work together with a group of alien teenagers called Trolls to save, not only their world, but many others, even in other galaxies.  Get ready to dive into a world where everything is completely crazy and can make little to no sense.  You will laugh the whole way through your Homestuck experience and make new friends. 

Still doesn't sound cool enough for you?  Come and learn more about this crazy phenomenon at the Standley Lake Library's Homestuck Party, Friday February 7th at 6:00pm.

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!

I always love hearing about the inspiring efforts to build libraries or bring books to children in third world countries, such as the Donkey Mobile Libraries and The Camel Bookmobile (fiction based on a true story). Turns out a nonprofit group here in Arvada is doing the same thing.  They are called SCOPE International, and among other projects, they develop school and community libraries in Kenya.  They have an exhibit of bright and interesting photographs on the display wall at Standley Lake this month, and they are having a reception this Saturday, July 13 at 2:00 in the Standley Lake meeting room.  Come learn more about their noble endeavors and adventures!

Do you believe in the Easter Bunny?  Jack Frost?  How about the Tooth Fairy or Santa Clause?  Well, the Rise of the Guardian movie has them all! 


The Standley Lake Library will be showing this movie on Saturday, June 29 at 11:00 am on the big screen in the meeting room.  Bring a pillow or blanket and snacks to enjoy while watching.  No tickets required!

Did you know that there is also a book about the Rise of the Guardians?  You can ask for it to come to the library nearest you by clicking on "Request" at the top of the page.
