Student aid workshop offered at Eagle library

EAGLE, Colorado - If you or someone close to you is college-bound, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) may seem like one more overwhelming hurdle. The Eagle Public Library would like to help.

On Monday from 6 to 8 p.m., College in Colorado representative Jamie Burciaga will be on hand at the Eagle Public Library to offer free, personal assistance with the FAFSA from, which is generally filled out online in either English or Spanish. Parents and high school seniors may attend, but pre-registration is required. Several forms, such as identification, tax returns, W-2s, and bank statements will also be necessary, and personal laptops are encouraged. The library will provide a limited number of laptops for use during the program.

"The FAFSA can be intimidating for many of us," said Robyn Bryant, adult services librarian at the Eagle Public Library. "Several documents are necessary, and the application is detailed and lengthy. But the process is well worth the return."

To register for the free FAFSA Information Session, call the library at 970-328-8800. Space is limited.
