Health Insurance Open Enrollment

November 1–December 15 for plans that begin Jan. 1, 2020

The Affordable Care Act hasn’t gone anywhere. Having health insurance can give you peace of mind when the unexpected happens. Most people can find plans for under $100 per month. Get free help with enrollment from DuPage County Health Department’s trained assisters at the Library on Monday, November 25. To schedule an appointment, call 630/221-7606.

To pick up a schedule of enrollment workshops, visit the display in the library lobby or go to Get DuPage Covered 2020.

New Publisher Limits Impact eBook Availability November 1

Macmillan Publishers will be limiting eBook releases to libraries. Beginning November 1, this change means we will only be allowed to purchase one copy of any new book published by Macmillan during the first two months of a book’s release. We anticipate this may result in longer waitlists for eBooks by popular authors including Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb, Rainbow Rowell, Liane Moriarty, Kristen Hannah and Nevada Barr.

If Macmillan’s embargo on new releases is successful and improves their bottom line, other publishers may follow suit. This will mean longer waits for people who use their library account to read and listen to digital books.

You can support the library’s ability to purchase digital materials without restrictions by signing the petition at ebooksforall.org.
