SAT Change!

Were you signed up to take the mock SAT at the library this weekend with the strategy session next week?  Due to the weather, we have had to cancel both events.  But, don't worry!  It has been rescheduled!  All teens are invited to join us on Saturday, April 2nd at 12 PM- 4 PM to take a practice SAT.  Then, come the following week at 1 PM for a Strategy Session to receive your graded SAT and get tips on how to improve your score.

Keep an eye on this space and we'll let you know when sign up begins.  Priority will be given to those who were signed up for this weekend.

A NoveList Idea

 

Looking for a good book, and tired of waiting for your favorite author to write another? Don’t know what you feel like reading?  Then check out NoveList Plus an electronic reader’s advisory service for fiction and nonfiction. This is a data base that will recommend author read-alikes.  Find by author, genre, or enter a novel you liked and get recommendations for similar books. Read all about it!

While You're Waiting . . .

 

Still on the request list for ‘The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest’ or ‘The Help’?  Or did you already read and really enjoy them?  Then check out our Bestseller Readalikes display at the Maud Marks Branch Library!  We update this popular display according to the top twenty books on the New York Times Bestseller list.  Stop by and take a look!

  

It's That Time of the Year!

Yes, tax time is nearly here!  Granted, it took a few weeks longer for many of the IRS forms and publications to get to the local libraries than usual, but they are arriving now.  In fact, Maud Marks currently has many of the major forms you are looking for as well as the booklet for the 1040 EZ form.  We are sorry but the booklets for the 1040 form and the 1040A form have not yet arrived.  If there is a form you need that we don't have yet, a librarian can help you find and print it from the IRS website.

And, with the tax forms, comes the tax assistance.  The volunteers from AARP will be at the Maud Marks Library on Mondays and Fridays from 10 AM to 2 PM beginning February 4th.  Just remember that the IRS is still updating their systems and recommends that those filing itemized deductions file after February 14th.
