Library Happenings

Tax Assistance

Tax season is upon us again and again this year the RSVP, Retired and Senior Volunteer Program will be volunteering their time to assist with the filing of basic tax forms. They will be here on Mondays 1-5, Wednesdays 1-5, and Saturdays 9-1. Their last day will be April 16. For a complete list of dates and time please visit our website at

For those needing tax forms, the library does have the basic federal forms in stock. They are in the rack in the hallway. We do at the moment have a few State of Alabama long forms at the Information Desk. We only received a small shipment so we have placed a limit of 1 booklet per person on the state forms. For those with internet access and a printer, federal and state forms may be obtained online. The federal forms can be found at and the state forms can be found at

Please be advised that the staff of the library will be able to help you find a form if you know the number of the form. However, the staff cannot advise you on what form to file or answer any questions regarding your taxes.
