Affordable Care Act Info at Your Local Public Library
The staff of the four AMY libraries and bookmobile are among many public libraries in North Carolina that can now help their communities as they explore health care exchanges and learn the details of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
“We are ready to help our residents understand some of the provisions of the act and access resources to apply for the benefits,” said Regional Library Director Dan Barron. “Our staff have completed workshop training provided by the State Library of North Carolina, webinars related to the ACA and have developed policies to guide us as we try to help any and all. We are not taking a stand for or against the Act, but are just trying to help those who need or want to apply.”
AMY libraries will: provide access to information regarding the ACA and how to apply, provide access to the internet and the use of our computers, access to inexpensive copy services (10¢ for b&w, 30¢ for color) and inexpensive fax services ($1 per page), and help users to get online and access internet resources. But librarians cannot fill in the forms for users or interpret the law or procedures beyond what is listed on the AMY website. “If we can’t help you, we will be able to direct you to other agencies and individuals who can,” said Barron. Check out the AMY Website at or go by your local public library. Any other questions can be addressed to the Director at 828-682-4476 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cup Exhibition at Crimson Laurel Gallery
Disaster, Relief, and Resilience: Cup Show, Curated by Martina Lantin, November 1 through December 25.
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 2nd 6-9pm.
Clay, at its core, is a product of natural disasters – wind, rain, earthquakes, volcanoes all contribute to the accumulation of clay deposits used the world over. However, as the seasons turn, the impact of humans on the climate of the planet becomes more apparent. The 52 artists in this show have encompassed this breadth with their approaches to the theme. The forces of nature represented in this show go beyond the meteorological to the mysterious. Several artists have incorporated broader issues of environmental impact –droughts, plagues and the colony collapses of bees. Also included are cups that reference the steps we take when forewarned of an impending storm, as well as the acts of nature themselves and their results.
These cups are not intended to make light of the challenges many face following these disasters, but to honor the strength of human nature to persevere. This show will continue the support begun last year for the Craft Emergency Relief Fund (CERF). For more information, visit www.crimsonlaurelgallery.com.
