Taxes: Upcoming Changes & The Effect On Your Retirement

Taxes have been a concern for many Americans for decades now. With rising deficits, debt on the federal, state and municipality level where does that leave the taxpayer? As we head towards retirement most Americans have squirreled away a fair amount of assets “tax-deferred”. At this educational workshop you will learn how taxes can change the outcome of your retirement. We will discuss current tax law, potential changes to tax law and strategies to get to as close to “tax-free” in retirement as you can. Samples of retirement analysis and strategies to transition to a more favored tax position with your savings and “tax-free” legacy concepts to consider.

Adult Book Discussion

Join us once a month for some lively discussion about great books! September's book discussion will be "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind" by William Kamkwamba.

Library Journal : “This is the remarkable story of an African teenager who, by courage, ingenuity, and determination, defeated the odds. Born in 1987 in a drought-ravaged Malawi where hope and opportunity were hard to find, Kamkwamba read about windmills in a library book and dreamed of building one that would bring electricity to his village and improve the lives of his family. At the age of 14, Kamkwamba had to drop out of school and help his family forage for food, but he never let go of his dream.”

The Cold War: A Historical Perspective

The Cold War: A Historical Perspective (session 1 of 5)

For those of a certain age, the Cold War is remembered as a defining backdrop of everyday life and was, by many, nothing less than a struggle for good and evil in its most elemental forms. Ideological adversaries before World War II, the two emergent superpowers afterwards, the United States and Soviet Union, became military adversaries as well. This undeclared global war ended only after the fall of Soviet Communist State and the breakaway of the Soviet satellite states in the years between 1989 and 1991. 

Presented by Arthur Gottlieb, LCSW, CSA. Art Gottlieb is a local historian on subjects of political and military history.  He was formerly a professional curator of naval history and the Technical Director of Exhibits at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in New York City.  In these roles, Mr. Gottlieb worked regularly with veterans of all services towards the creation of exhibits accurately illustrating the history of 20th century warfare. Mr. Gottlieb maintains a private practice as a Counselor and Certified Senior Advisor in Norwalk, CT, and offers Pro Bono counseling services to soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.  Mr. Gottlieb served as an Auxiliary Officer of the United States Coast Guard for 17 years and for 4 years was Commander of Flotilla 7-2, 1st District (Southern Region), Sector Long Island Sound North. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

This is a 5-session series. By registering once, you will be registered for the entire series! The series will be held bi-monthly through November 30, 2022. You will receive a separate Zoom link for each program.  If you have not received the Zoom information by the day before the program, please CHECK YOUR SPAM - especially Gmail users!

The Cold War: A Historical Perspective

The Cold War: A Historical Perspective (session 2 of 5)

For those of a certain age, the Cold War is remembered as a defining backdrop of everyday life and was, by many, nothing less than a struggle for good and evil in its most elemental forms. Ideological adversaries before World War II, the two emergent superpowers afterwards, the United States and Soviet Union, became military adversaries as well. This undeclared global war ended only after the fall of Soviet Communist State and the breakaway of the Soviet satellite states in the years between 1989 and 1991. 

Presented by Arthur Gottlieb, LCSW, CSA. Art Gottlieb is a local historian on subjects of political and military history.  He was formerly a professional curator of naval history and the Technical Director of Exhibits at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in New York City.  In these roles, Mr. Gottlieb worked regularly with veterans of all services towards the creation of exhibits accurately illustrating the history of 20th century warfare. Mr. Gottlieb maintains a private practice as a Counselor and Certified Senior Advisor in Norwalk, CT, and offers Pro Bono counseling services to soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.  Mr. Gottlieb served as an Auxiliary Officer of the United States Coast Guard for 17 years and for 4 years was Commander of Flotilla 7-2, 1st District (Southern Region), Sector Long Island Sound North. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

This is a 5-session series. By registering once, you will be registered for the entire series! The series will be held bi-monthly through November 30, 2022. You will receive a separate Zoom link for each program.  If you have not received the Zoom information by the day before the program, please CHECK YOUR SPAM - especially Gmail users!

Adult Book Discussion

Join us once a month for some lively discussion about great books! November's book discussion will be "The Searcher" by Tana French.

Booklist: “Wearing the scars of both a painful divorce and 25 years with the Chicago Police Department, Cal Hooper buys a fixer-upper in Ireland, looking to decompress while reclaiming his dormant DIY skills. … An encounter with the sullen and mostly silent Trey, who becomes an able assistant on the remodeling project, leads to Cal agreeing to help search for the gender-fluid teen's brother, who has disappeared. … This is a fine thriller, but it's also a moving story of an unlikely friendship that grows from refinishing a ramshackle desk to rebuilding two nearly broken lives.”

Books are available a month prior to the program and can be picked up at the Circulation Desk or via our Library-to-Go service.

Registration is required to receive the Zoom link. If your library barcode is unavailable, please use your phone number in that space.
