TAX PREPARATION ASSISTANCE COMING IN FEBRUARY
The Library will once again be partnering with the AARP to offer tax prep for senior citizens and low-income residents. The Library will host the AARP on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning February 7 through April 13 from 9 a.m. – noon. IRS-trained volunteers will help in preparing both federal and state forms. This service is offered on a first-come, first-served basis and we cannot guarantee that everyone needing help will be accommodated on any given day. Please remember to bring all necessary paperwork to complete the forms. A sign-up sheet will be located outside the lower lobby entrance beginning at 7:30 a.m., so early arrivals can register and then either wait in their car or return when the library opens.
