KPL is joining 170 other Tennessee libraries in Geek the Library, a national campaign to raise awareness about the importance of libraries. The campaign uses the word “geek” as a verb and highlights what people are passionate about and how libraries can provide resources to support their pursuits. Be on the lookout for Geek billboards, yard signs and more. The website, www.geekthelibrary.org, provides information about how people can get active and support their local libraries.

On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act. The law puts in place comprehensive health insurance reforms that will roll out over four years and beyond. Click here for an overview of the key features of the Affordable Care Act year-by-year.
A primary goal of the Affordable Care Act is to help the 16% uninsured and eligible in Tennessee gain access to quality, affordable healthcare. Central to this goal is the creation of the Health Insurance Marketplace. Through the Marketplace, eligible Americans will be able to enroll in a health plan to get coverage that starts in January 2014.
- 16% uninsured
- 6-month open enrollment period begins Oct. 1, 2013 and ends March 31, 2014
- Coverage begins as early as Jan. 1, 2014
- Many people will get savings they can use right away to help them pay for insurance in the Marketplace (including an individual with income less than $45,960 or a family of 4 with income less than $94,200).
Need health coverage? The Health Insurance Marketplace will give you a clear picture of what you’ll pay and what you’ll get before you make a choice. Visit HealthCare.gov to learn more.

The new update for the Ipad (ios 7) has created issues with Overdrive (READS downloadables). You must unistall the Overdrive media console ( to do so you hold down on the icon, when all icons start shaking click the x in corner of icon, then delete. ) You must then go into the app store and get overdrive app again. You will have to put in your adobe id again. All should be well after that. The library is checking with our KPL app vendor to see if there’s an issue there, too.
