Tax Forms Online

While we still receive paper copies of tax forms from the Internal Revenue Service, we expect that this won't happen indefinitely. Charity Martin, one of our great reference assistants, will help you ease into finding and using the computerized version of tax forms this Tuesday, February 28 from 7-9 pm. in the Computer Lab L216. As with all our programs, it's free. 

On a completely different note, we send our congratulations and best wishes to our sister branch, the Barbara Bush at Cypress Creek branch, celebrating its 35 birthday this weekend.
