Educated Choices: A Workshop on Social Security Benefits
6:00 PM

**Learn to optimize your Social Security Benefits**

In this free workshop, investment advisor Samuel Abraham will lead a planning strategy and Q&A session to take the guesswork out of one of the most important decisions affecting your financial future.

          Ways to navigate through the twists and turns for widows, widowers, and divorcées.

         How certain types of earnings can affect your benefits.

The Game Room: A Table Top Experience
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Thanks to The Big Bang Theory, popular podcasts, and the rise of Nerd Power, gaming is now more popular than ever.  Join the library for a chance to trade your thousand-plus cable channels and the rabbit holes of YouTube for some real fun with real people –plus a rule book and a table top!

The Game Room meets twice a month for an evening of conversation, game play, and turn-taking.  We are completely free —no more having to purchase overpriced coffee for the right to use precious counter space!—and we welcome Euro Games, deck building games, RPGs, and whatever else happens to move your meeple.

In addition to our own collection, The Game Room is happily BYOB, or (Bring Your Own Board game.)
