  • Library Update!
    January - February
    Closings -
    Monday, February 19 - Presidents' Day


    In the case of the Library closing due to inclement weather, closing will be announced on the web site, Facebook, and if possible on the phone. Always check the web site or call the Library in advance (if you hear a message machine, that means we are closed).

    IRS Tax Forms
    On January 4, the IRS announced that the 2018 tax filing season would begin on January 29. The IRS set the opening date to ensure the security and readiness of key tax processing systems in advance of the opening and to assess the potential impact of recent tax legislation on 2017 tax returns.

    The IRS is currently working to finalize the forms and instructions to reflect the legislation which passed in late December. As a result, some shipments may come later than normal.

    While most IRS tax forms, instructions and publications will be available electronically on IRS.gov by the beginning of the filing season (Jan. 29), the printing and distribution process for printed products takes longer to complete.

    The IRS understands that you may have questions about when tax products will be delivered to your location. They are establishing dates for printing and distributing product orders. As soon as shipping information is available, the Library will be informed of this schedule.

    If you need help in downloading forms, please ask a staff member!

  • NEW at the Library
    The Library has many online resources for you to use from downloading a book or song to learning a language. Sometimes it may be overwhelming to try to learn which resources are most useful to YOU.

    The Library now has quick tutorials on how to get started on some of these resources. In most cases, there is a short introduction with additional videos on how to get started. Instructions on how to download books also include specific devices. You'll  see them on the Resources and Databases and Downloadable Books as a nifty side slider page! And within those pages, there are also links to the tutorials. We hope they will help you!

    We will list here tutorial additions on using social media programs:
