    Contact: Sherry Bailey, Adult Services/Reference Librarian   432-6140   sherryb@derrypl.org
   

So... you misunderstood the penalties for failing to sign up for healthcare, filed your taxes, and were shocked at the amount you had to pay? Since this has happened a lot, a special enrollment period will occur between March 15 and April 30 this year to try to help people recover from this mistake. Katie Mae Stewart, Derry Certified Navigator will be at the Library to help explain and assist with the process of enrolling in a plan.

This program is for people who became aware of the tax penalties when they filled out their 2014 taxes, and have paid the fine for not having coverage. If you take advantage of this extended enrollment period, you will still have to pay the fee for the months you were uninsured.

Registration is required for this program due to limitations on available computers and constraints for individual help.

You can phone Ms. Stewart to schedule appointments for help outside this program at 339-6307.

So... you misunderstood the penalties for failing to sign up for healthcare, filed your taxes, and were shocked at the amount you had to pay? Since this has happened a lot, a special enrollment period will occur between March 15 and April 30 this year to try to help people recover from this mistake. Katie Mae Stewart, Derry Certified Navigator will be at the Library to help explain and assist with the process of enrolling in a plan.

This program is for people who became aware of the tax penalties when they filled out their 2014 taxes, and have paid the fine for not having coverage. If you take advantage of this extended enrollment period, you will still have to pay the fee for the months you were uninsured.

Registration is required for this program due to limitations on available computers and constraints for individual help.

You can phone Ms. Stewart to schedule appointments for help outside this program at 339-6307.

This storytime is designed for children ages 3 – 11 with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities. Children who are developmentally at a preschool/kindergarten level (and their siblings!) are invited to attend this interactive storytime featuring stories, activities, music, and movement. If a traditional storytime is not the right setting for your child, this might be a better fit!

  • Sensory Storytime takes place on the last Saturday of each month, beginning in January 2015.
  • There are two sessions: 10am – 11am & 1pm – 2pm. The program itself will last approximately half an hour, with additional time for playing and socializing.
  • Caretakers must be present.
  • Registration is required to ensure small groups. 

Please note that this storytime is not meant to segregate anyone. All children are welcome to attend any of our programs for their age level. Rather, this is an opportunity for children who might have trouble sitting through a traditional storytime to come be who they are in a welcoming, accepting environment.

    Contact: Nicole   603-432-6140   nicoleg@derrypl.org
   

This storytime is designed for children ages 3 – 11 with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities. Children who are developmentally at a preschool/kindergarten level (and their siblings!) are invited to attend this interactive storytime featuring stories, activities, music, and movement. If a traditional storytime is not the right setting for your child, this might be a better fit!

  • Sensory Storytime takes place on the last Saturday of each month, beginning in January 2015.
  • There are two sessions: 10am – 11am & 1pm – 2pm. The program itself will last approximately half an hour, with additional time for playing and socializing.
  • Caretakers must be present.
  • Registration is required to ensure small groups. 

Please note that this storytime is not meant to segregate anyone. All children are welcome to attend any of our programs for their age level. Rather, this is an opportunity for children who might have trouble sitting through a traditional storytime to come be who they are in a welcoming, accepting environment.
