Medicare workshop at Greenwood Library, Children’s Museum added to Museum Pass program

Seattle Public Library is hosting Medicare Made Clear workshops this September, including one at the Greenwood Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N. The workshop runs from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15. Free; no registration required.

Medicare specialist Jean Cormier of Cormier Insurance will provide an overview of the different parts of Medicare, what each part covers and how they work. At this workshop, you’ll learn the different ways you can receive your benefits, including the pros and cons of each and approximate costs. Enrollment and eligibility guidelines will also be covered.

And SPL has added Seattle Children’s Museum to its Museum Pass program, which offers free admission to 17 Seattle museums and cultural organizations.

Library cardholders can reserve one free Museum Pass per week. Each Museum Pass provides admission for at least two adults — some passes allow more, and may include free admission for kids ages 17 and under. You can sign up for a pass to a specific organization once every 30 days.

The program reservation system requires you to enter your Library card number and personal identification number (PIN), then choose a specific date and print the museum pass.

Other participating organizations include: The Burke Museum, The Center for Wooden Boats, Flying Heritage Collection, Henry Art Gallery, Living Computers: Museum + Lab, The Log House Museum, MoPOP, Museum of Flight, Museum of History & Industry, Nordic Museum, Northwest African American Museum, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Aquarium, Seattle Public Theater, Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience, and Woodland Park Zoo.

For the Children’s Museum, Library cardholders can check out a pass that provides free admission for up to five people (at least one of whom must be 10 years old or under). (Babies 12 months and under are always free.)
