As you may already know the Internal Revenue Service is no longer mailing paper tax forms to homes. This is to save money and to encourage taxpayers to file electronically. People wanting to file their taxes using paper instead of on-line methods may find the tax forms they need at the library. Federal and State Tax forms will be available at the library starting in January 2013. Library computers are also available for e-filing tax returns. You may also print forms at a cost of $.10 per print. Free tax assistance will be available starting in February. More information and reservations can be made early 2013 by calling 812-988-2850.

Want to share a special Christmas story with your 8-10 year old child and/or grandchild? Read THE HOUSE WITHOUT A CHRISTMAS TREE by Gail Rock or THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER by Barbara Robinson.
THE HOUSE WITHOUT A CHRISTMAS TREE is about “10 year old Addie Mills who feels cheated, since year after year her father hasn’t let her have a Christmas tree. What’s worse, he refuses to give her a reason. Luckily Addie has her grandmother’s support and friendship, but even Grandma can’t get Addie’s father to change his mind. Then, to her surprise, Addie finds a way to make her dream come true.”
THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER “features the Herdmans, the terror of their town. When Imogene, Ralph, and Gladys muscle in on Sunday School and demand the leading roles in the Christmas pageant, they get their way because the other kids don’t dare challenge them. Chaos results, as the Herdmans act out their unique version of what happened so long ago in Bethlehem. And surprise – everyone agrees it was the best Christmas pageant ever.”
Our library has both books and, also, the DVDs!
The library subscribes to nine newspapers and over 70 magazines. This is a great money saver for our patrons. These periodicals are kept in displays back in the quiet area near the fireplace, where there are tables, couches and lamps for your comfort.
Back issues of newspapers are kept in the shelves underneath the displays for approximately two weeks. The Democrat , our local weekly, is kept all year until it is transferred to microfilm. Many people come in regularly to read the newspapers. Some make copies of things like crossword puzzles or articles.
Current issues of magazines are generally kept in plastic sleeves and are not available for check out until the next issue arrives. This makes them available for more people. Back issues of magazines are kept for one to five years.
We are always glad to help you make copies of items at the circulation desk area. It only costs 10 cents per page. In order to keep the papers intact for everyone who may need them, please do not remove any pages or sections from the library.
