Income taxNever fear, help is here!  Starting this Saturday, February 4, volunteer members of AARP, who have been trained by the IRS, will be here to help people complete their 2011 federal income tax forms.  There are no age or income requirements, and they can file returns electronically.  And, it’s all FREE.  They will be in the meeting room here at the Fairbanks Library on Saturdays, from 10 am to 2 pm, and on Mondays and Tuesdays, from 1 to 5 pm.  Please bring all of the relevant documents with you.  [Clipart © Jupiter Images]

Celebrating African-American Authors & Illustrators

Many of the finest picture books and fiction for young readers are authored and/or illustrated by African American writers.  To celebrate African American authors and illustrators, the library has a new display of books for you to browse and share with children.  And those are just a few of the many books and other materials the Harris County Public Library has available for you to use.  The library staff can always help you find what  you need, so please ask us.  Happy Reading!

  

Tax forms are here!

Stop by the Fairbanks Library for IRS Income Tax Forms. The forms are on a table in the lobby. Instruction booklets are in boxes beneath the table. If we don't have the forms or booklets that you are looking for, visit http://www.irs.gov/formspubs/index.html to print the materials or request them to be sent to your home by mail.
