Don't Wait!

Tax deadline 2016The tax deadline will be here before you know it. Get your taxes done ASAP so you won’t have to wait in the huge crowd of people wanting help with their tax returns on the last day. The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers are here at the Fairbanks Library on Mondays and Thursdays from 1 pm-5 pm, and Saturdays from 10 am-2 pm. If those days and times don't work for you, you can find other Tax-Aide locations on the AARP web site. There are no age or income requirements for this service.

Spring Cleaning!

It certainly seems like springtime is already here in Houston even though it is only mid-March.  In case you have begun to think about doing some spring cleaning, then we have some great recommendations for books to help you plan and complete your projects.  Please browse our display, "Spring Cleaning," and hopefully you will find some to check out.  If not, please don't forget that we can interlibrary loan titles from other branches in the library system.  Happy Reading and Happy Spring Cleaning!
