Power of Attorney


Decorah Public Library is hosting a free presentation on power of attorney by staff of Iowa Legal Aid at 3:30 PM on Tuesday, December 13th. The presentation will take place in the library’s lower level meeting room.

This educational program by Iowa Legal Aid lawyers will cover topics related to power of attorney. “It can be hard to talk with our loved ones about what happens when we can’t make decisions for ourselves, but power of attorney is an important part of estate planning” said Zach Row-Heyveld, Decorah Public Library Assistant Director. “This program will help introduce people to some of the issues around power of attorney they might want to discuss further with their partners, children, parents, or siblings.” The presenting attorney can also answer questions about advance directives, and other civil legal topics related to seniors.  

Iowa Legal Aid is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing legal assistance and advice to low-income and vulnerable Iowans. In addition to direct legal aid, they also provide educational programs on a variety of legal topics.
