Puzzle It Out!

In these final days of winter, we invite you to form a team to compete in our First Jigsaw Puzzle Competition on Sat, Mar 23 starting at 10:30. Up to six teams will compete against each other in completing a jigsaw puzzle. Each team will complete the same puzzle. The champion team will be the one that completes the 500 piece puzzle the quickest. Other prizes will be given as well – best name for a team, team most dressed like a puzzle, and the “we try harder” team. And, we will serve snacks! Register your Jigsaw Team by March 9 by calling 203 393-2103. Teams can be up to six people.

 

Make the Most of College Financial Aide

This free workshop on Weds, Mar 6, 6:30 to 8 pm is for families of high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. Don’t let the cost of college limit your dreams. We’ll discuss the FAFSA form and all the other information you need to maximize the amount of financial aid you are eligible to receive. Even if your family is not eligible for need-based aide, we cover the best strategies on how to pay for college in the most cost effective basis. You will learn about the assets taken into consideration when the US Dept of Education calculates your Expected Family Contribution, how to avoid raiding your retirement or relying solely on 529 plans, how to avoid costly student loans, how to make a customized plan to cover ALL college costs, and how to select colleges based on their financial aid packages. Plus, discover how to increase college-related tax deductions and tax credits. You can send your child to an expensive private university for less than the cost of a state school. Register online: https://collegeplanningworkshopbethany-3-6-19.eventbrite.com.

We are 80% of the way there…

Help! We are just a little more than halfway to this year’s Annual Drive goal of $18,000.

Contributions made to the Annual Drive are put to immediate use. Checks, cash, and PayPal donations are transformed into books, DVDs, digital content, programs, and opened hours.  Last year’s Annual Drive became 400 programs, 2,000 times our computers were used, five books per capita borrowed, and digital access 24/7 to music, movies, magazines, and books! How much do you value these services and programs? Please give accordingly, if you have not already. If you have given, Thank you! Building a library is a labor of love and you are showing your love!
