    As a topic that is always in the news....you may have questions. What age is my full benefit age? Where can I read the original Social Security legislation? Will the money run out? These and many other questions can be answered in the library.

     The first stop in your search for information is the Social Security Handbook in the library reference collection. Other works such as The Complete Idiot's Guide to Social Security and Medicare and Social Security for Dummies will answer questions, too. Read the original legislation in Major Acts of Congress. You can follow the torturous history of Social Security by consulting the multi-volume Congress and the Nation series in the reference collection.

For more information about this important topic call the library (610-543-2113) or stop by and talk to a librarian.
