Affordable Care Act Tuesdays at the Oak Ridge Public Library

From 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., on the 2nd Tuesday of every month,

trained federal navigators will be available at a table in the Main Library

under the ACA Exchanges. Local help is available, and 4 in 5 Tennesseans

who got covered also received financial assistance. The first ACA Tuesday

Need Some One on One Kindle Help? Make an Appointment at the Library!


Navigating the evolving technological world can be challenging. Websites, devices, and programs are constantly upgraded, changing their appearance and often confusing us in the process.  Joan Kearney, a Kindle enthusiast, has worked at the Oak Ridge Public Library for thirty years and owns different generations of Kindles. Joan will be available for one-on-one-Kindle-tutorials by appointment. She can help walk you through the checkout process on your Kindle device, whether it’s a first generation Kindle, a Kindle app, or the latest version, so you can explore the library’s electronic collection. This is a free program for the community and only requires that you bring your Kindle, your library card number and PIN, and the email address and password associated with your Amazon account. If you do not have a library card, please call the Circulation Desk at 865-425-3455 prior to your Kindle appointment to learn what is needed to create a library account. For more information about this program, please call the Library at 865-425-3455 or email the Circulation Librarian at CircLib@oakridgetn.gov.
