The Affordable Health Care Act Computer Labs scheduled for Dec. 3 (1-3 p.m.) and Dec. 9 (7-9 p.m) have been cancelled. However, you are welcome to use the computers on the second floor anytime to research or sign up for health insurance. Librarians can offer limited assistance on navigating the website but cannot offer advice on health care plans.
Our librarians have compiled a comprehensive list of information on the Affordable Health Care Act, featuring dates, links, marketplace information, and programs to help you make decisions about your health care.
