Legal Clinic Banner

Volunteer attorneys will assist one-on-one, via computer link.

A FREE legal clinic for parties who have no attorney. Volunteer attorneys will answer questions, help fill out forms, and explain the process and procedure for the legal issues in the areas of family law, civil litigation, property law, probate law, collections, appeals, landlord – tenant law, veteran’s benefits, and civil protection orders. Volunteer attorneys do not represent you just because they help you at this clinic. This clinic is information only, and is no substitute for legal representation. You have the right to retain an attorney of your choice at any time, and are advised to do so. Everyone will be helped on a first-come, first-served basis. Intended for parties without an attorney. Hosted by the Spanish Peaks Library District, Supported by the Access to Justice Committee, local bar association, and local courts.

Mindful Aging Banner

The HeARTworks outreach program of Mt. Rose Health Center and the Spanish Peaks Library District are partnering to offer a new Mindful Aging Program on the 4th Monday of every month at 2PM in the meeting room at the Walsenburg Library at 415 Walsen Avenue.

October 25, 2021:

Sandy Dolak will lead a discussion on Social Isolation. 

Barbara Striesand was spot on when she sang “People who need people are the luckiest people in the world”. Social Isolation is not only a killer, but our struggles with the pandemic have only made it worse. 

Come to the library in Walsenburg on Monday October 25 and learn about the devastating costs of social isolation both in terms of decreased life span as well as a measurable financial cost to society.  We can start to change the tides of social isolation by gathering safely with covid precautions and start to change the trajectory of isolation. Bring your ideas for how we can create meaningful gatherings.   The program will conclude with a fun, non-competitive card game that will gently take you to a new level of understanding of the people around you. 

November 22, 2021:

November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, a time to heighten awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and show support for the more than 6.2 million Americans living with this devastating diagnosis. Even more staggering is the number of caregivers, loved ones and friends that are also affected. And we all have nagging questions wondering if misplacing our keys is the beginning of that slippery slope! 

Sandy Dolak, RN is partnering with Mt. Rose Health Center Palliative Care and Hospice, the Walsenburg Library and the La Veta Library to present a most informative program about the understanding of the disease as well as most effective methods of interacting with those affected. She will be using materials presented by nationally recognized educator Amy Mathews. Amy has worked exclusively in the field of Alzheimer’s and related dementia disorders for the past 30 years. Sandy will also share her insight of many years of interest and a brief sharing of the role of creativity in working with this special population.

The program will be 2PM, Thursday November 18th upstairs at the La Veta Library and then repeated at 2PM, Monday November 22nd at the Walsenburg Library. Please join us for this learning experience.  Refreshments will be served.
