What's Happening At The Library
Need Help With Taxes?
Tax Aide will be here to help.
The library will once again be hosting the AARP Tax-Aide Program. Since 1968, this volunteer-based program has helped millions of people file their taxes...for free! The program begins Feb 3rd and continues until April 15th. Representatives will available to assist with tax forms on Wednesdays and Fridays. Appointments are available from 9a.m. to 1:30p.m. You can walk, in but there is no guarantee you can be seen. It is best to call ahead and make an appointment. You can sign up for appointments starting January 11th. Tax-Aide will not be available on Book Sale Fridays (First Friday each month) or Good Friday March 25th.
