Red Hook Public Library to Provide Legal Workshop for Seniors

(RED HOOK, NY) – Do you need a health care proxy? Is your will in good shape? Have you chosen an executor? These and other legal questions will be answered from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 29, when the Elder Law Pro Bono Project comes to Red Hook Public Library to answer a variety of questions about legal issues affecting seniors.


The Elder Law Pro Bono Project is a collaboration of Albany Law School Pro Bono Program and the Rural Law Center of New York. “Senior citizens and their families, especially in rural areas, often don’t have access to critical legal information,” said Susan Patnode, Executive Director of the Rural Law Center of New York.  “This workshop will bring important resources directly to home towns.”


This program is free and open to the public.


Red Hook Public Library was founded in 1898 and serves the community of Red Hook and its need for lifelong learning. Since 1935, the library has made its home in a mid-nineteenth century building based on the designs of Orson Squire Fowler.
