Attention Zinio Users!
The Plymouth District Library is switching to a new digital magazine service beginning December 1, 2014. The new system, called “Flipster,” is full of great magazine content and is also very user friendly. Flipster has a one account, web browser interface that we know you will find easy to manage.
Any library magazines checked out to your Zinio.com account will disappear on November 30, 2014. Any magazines you subscribe to and pay for individually, separate from library holdings, will still exist and continue in your Zinio.com account. Your library Zinio account (through RB Digital) will disappear completely. You will still have a Zinio.com commercial account until you choose to delete it.
As you will soon see, Flipster provides a better value with an easier interface. Thanks for your patience through this transition!
Medicare Part D Workshop Registration now open!
Are you or a family member eligible for Medicare Part D? Whether you are new to the Part D programs, or a current participant who wants to see next year's plan options, join us at one of our free sessions. They are scheduled for Tuesday mornings at 10am. The last workshop date before open enrollment season ends is December 2.
At the workshop you’ll be able to compare prescription drug coverage plans available for your individual needs. Participants will be provided with a print-out that compares their top three plans and instructions on how to enroll in the plan they choose. Be sure to bring your prescriptions with you, or a detailed list including dosages. Programs are held in the computer lab, but you do not need to know how to operate a computer. Library staff will be there to facilitate your individualized search!
