On Saturday January 11th from 2-5pm, there will be a special program on the new Affordable Care Act.  There will be a person here who can answer any questions that you may have about the Affordable Health Care act.  This program is designed to help people figure out how to sign up for healthcare.

If you can’t get to the library because you are pregnant, don’t drive, or are ill, and still would like to be able to get library materials, then sign up for our homebound delivery service.  You call us to sign up and tell us what you would like to read and we will match you with a volunteer.  We will pick out books for you, check them out and then deliver them to your door.  When you are done the volunteer will pick them up and bring them back to the library along with any requests for other books.   If you have any questions about this service or want to sign up, please give us a call at 908-754-7885.
