Fun!

Hello....will you all be hosting a Social Security class this year? If not, would you know who facilitated the class so I could reach out to them? THANKS so much for your assistance.

Hello-
Most of the Social Security classes that are held in our branches are community organizations or businesses that are using our meeting rooms. We do not a list of those organizations. I'm sorry I cannot be of more assistance.

Do you have a class on the ends and outs of Medicare?

Hello,
The library does not offer classes on Medicare. However, the Pikes Peak Council of Governments Agency on Aging does have classes on this topic. They are the local experts on helping navigate the Medicare system. The next class is on March 19 from 9-11:30. Please call 719-471-2096 for more information and to register. Thanks so much for your question.
Melanie
