Long-term care planning

Now is the time to start planning long-term care. A long-term care insurance policy may be valuable in planning retirement. It could help protect all the hard work invested -- your home, your savings, your legacy -- giving a means to afford the kind of care you may need in the manner in which you choose. An invitation is extended to meet Matt Blake at Bella Vista Library at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 7, to learn more about long-term care insurance.

Summer reading kick-off

The library is kicking off the summer in style from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday, June 13, for a rockin' morning of snow cones, face painting, a bounce house, and the Amazeum.

For all of those who attend, there will be a raffle for tickets to the Artosphere Festival Orchestra at the Walton Arts Center.
