Last Call to get your taxes done

As we roll inexorably up to April 15th this Sunday, those of us with tax forms yet to complete are counting down the days. If you qualify for an extension and need to file an extension form (Form 4868) the library has a few copies left.
AARP Tax Aide will be in the library Saturday, April 14 and Monday, April 16 and then they roll away their computers and take a well-deserved rest. On behalf of all our customers who rely on the help of the AARP Tax Aide program to complete their income tax submission, we want to thank the faithful tax team who come in three times a week every year to help our customers.

Marshall Stephen's paintings were among those most fondly received by customers and staff alike as they hung in our Meeting Room, Room L 129 last year. For the month of April, Stephen's paintings are back for you to enjoy. Most of the paintings are new but he has included a couple of old favorite abstracts to amuse, confuse, and delight you. Come on by.
