February is a very busy month at the library as you can see from the announcements that follow.
All month long, representatives from AARP are present on Tuesdays and Thursdays to assist patrons in filling out their federal income tax forms. Currently, all appointments are filled. However, you may come by and be a standby incase of a no-show. They also try to work in walk-ins as time allows.
If you want to fill out your own income tax forms, the library also has copies of the major forms available. You can pick them up for free in the library’s lobby. If you don’t see what you need out there, please come inside. Most forms can be printed out for you from the internet for a charge of 15 cents a page.
