(Large Meeting Room unless otherwise noted)
On December 9th at 7:00pm Julianna Whittaker, a certified Affordable Care Act Navigator, will give an informative and helpful presentation on the Health Care Marketplace and an introduction to the new Affordable Care Act and give community members the opportunity to ask questions. This session is being held as part of the final push to get individuals signed up before the December 15th deadline for January 1st coverage. Individuals will still be able to sign up for coverage after this date, until March 31, 2014. This is just the deadline for those who need coverage by January 1st, 2014.
Julianna Whittaker is also available for one-on-one drop in assistance on the following days at the Lewis & Clark Library.
While the public can use Library computers to access the Marketplace, Library staff is unable to assist with questions or concerns, as they are not certified Navigators.

An Hour of Your Time to Help Save a Life
The American Red Cross is hoping we can count on you to donate a pint of your lifesaving blood. Strains of the cold and flu are circulating throughout our communities, causing fewer individuals to be well enough or available to donate. However, the need for blood is constant. The American Red Cross is asking healthy donors to help ensure blood is available for patients by scheduling an appointment to donate blood.
Every 27 minutes, someone in Montana needs blood. As the nation's single largest supplier of blood and blood products, the Red Cross is dedicated to ensuring that every patient who needs a lifesaving transfusion is able to receive one. In fact, the Red Cross must collect more than 700 pints of blood each week to meet the needs of patients at more than 30 hospitals and transfusion centers in Montana. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients.
