I’m sorry, we do *not* have Tax Forms. In an effort to save money, our government has chosen not to send out tax forms to the smaller libraries for the past few years. We *do* have numbers you can call or you can get on www.irs.gov and print them out.
Storytime will be this Saturday, Nov 16th, 2013, at 10 a.m. in the Library. Miss Dana will be reading this year’s “Kansas Read’s to Preschoolers” book, so you don’t want to miss out!
