Medicare Part D Assistance available at Morton Library

Beginning October 15 through December 7, 2018 you may change your current Medicare Part D Plan for prescription drugs or enroll in a Part D Plan for the first time.  This enrollment will be effective January 1, 2019.  You do not have to change your plan if you are satisfied with the one you have.  However, you are encouraged to check every year to see if your plan is still the least expensive for your current prescription medications.

Mel Clauser, SHIP Counselor and Central Illinois Agency on Aging Volunteer, (sponsored by Morton Public Library) will be available to assist you, by appointment, at the Morton Public Library on Wednesdays (9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.) during the enrollment period from October 15 through December 7, 2016.  There is NO charge for this service.

Please call the Library (263-2200) to make an appointment.  Appointments may be arranged for other times if you cannot come on a Wednesday.  Any changes to your Medicare Part D Plan should be completed by December 7 in order to make a smooth transition starting January 1, 2019.

Please bring your Medicare card and a list of all your prescription medications (including medication name, dosage, and frequency taken) with you to your appointment. 


Museum Pass at the library

Thanks to sponsorship from the Peoria Riverfront Museum’s Visionary Society, Morton Public Library cardholders can now borrow a pass to the Peoria Riverfront Museum! The library has one pass which is available to be checked out on a first-come, first-served basis to patrons with a valid Morton Public Library library card.

The pass can be used on the day of checkout or the following day. The pass includes general admission* to all exhibits, galleries, and daytime planetarium shows for two adults and their children or grandchildren.

Passes cannot be reserved or checked out online or over the phone. Passes must be checked out in person at the library’s Check Out Desk. Please visit the library to find out current pass availability. Library staff will be able to check if it is available and also check out the pass.

Please note that passes are non-transferable. Borrowing patrons will be asked for photo identification and their library card to gain admission to the museum.
