WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE LIBRARY...

Free Tax Assistance!

We have partnered with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance (DTF) to help you file both your state and federal taxes for free! Throughout the season you can schedule an appointment to come to the library and file your own income tax returns free of charge with the guidance of a DTF employee. If your income was below $60,000 last year then you are qualified to take advantage of this terrific program.

This partnership allows us to fulfill our mission of being a resource to the community by helping you to file your taxes in the most secure and accurate way. The easy to follow interview-style program will help ensure you get all of the credits you deserve.  Most importantly, if you e-file your return, you will receive your refund twice as fast as someone who filed a paper return!

Free help is available at the Main Library, 1425 Main Street from February 19-April 13, 2015 at the following times:

Monday 3-7pm
Thursday 11-3pm
Saturday 9-1pm


Call the Information Desk at 286-4881 to make an appointment or stop in today to learn more.

Take Your Child to the Library Day 2015

Thanks to all of the families who braved a rather blustery day and spent the afternoon with us at the library. Activities included crafting, a scavenger hunt, dancing and hanging out with the Enchanted Entertainers and a viewing of the sing-along version of Frozen. We hope you had as much fun as we did! Here are some highlights from the day...
