Line Formed at 7:45 a.m. on Tuesday

Income tax help is in big demand! Why? Because it is free, fast and thorough. AARP is at the Stratford Library every Tuesday through April 13th from 11:oo a.m. - 3:00 p.m. You may sign in as early as 10:00 on Tuesday mornings. These people were very eager to put their names on the line by 10:00 on the first Tuesday of tax help. There are three people who come to file your taxes, so there isn't a need to be anxious. Come enjoy coffee and refreshments provided by the Stratford Friends of the Library. Donations for these will be used toward children's programming in the summer.

The BEST thing about this tax service that is offered is it's FREE!

How Much is a Dollar?

This week we would just like to spotlight one of our wonderful Stratford patrons, Yvette Gardner, a mother of a busy 3 year old daughter and regular attendee of our baby/toddler story time on Thursday mornings.

What do you do with your 526,600 minutes?

Mr. William Raymond James, a customer at the Stratford Branch Library in Highlands, is 93 years of age and comes regularly to check out books for both him and his wife of 72 years. While he may not run, bike or walk with friends anymore to get here, he continues to drive his car and occasionally brings flowers from his yard for the staff.

Tax Time is Here Again!

We are so pleased to be able to offer everyone this free tax service. It will begin on the first Tuesday of February and be available every Tuesday until April 15 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pmThis is mainly for seniors, but they do not turn anyone away. If you are really struggling and need help, come on in. Bring last year's return and whatever other papers you have received in the mail from your investments, etc. You may begin signing in at 10:00 when we open. If you are not in too much of a hurry, wait a few weeks and the line will become shorter. They usually are able to help about 14 people during the 4 hours. We will be welcoming you with coffee and cookies provided by the Friends of the Library and a donation would be welcome.
