No Tax Forms

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 and print them out.

Library Smell

We have been killing bugs and are trying to get read of a cat or squirrel in the drop down ceiling. Please bare with us as the smell is like moth balls. Until the city comes and puts a cap on our old chimney. We are sorry for the smell.   Sandra

Libraries will get you through times of no money, better than money will get you though times of no Libraries.
