As we rejoin the Downloadable Books program, we have the opportunity to expand it, but the funding would likely come from our traditional (paper) books budget. Should we invest more of our book budget in downloadable books/movies, to buy more downloadable titles? If more and more people are reading digitally, do we respond to that preference with more funding in that area? It’s your tax dollars, so I want to hear from you.
Let’s start a discussion-please email me/call me to share your opinions.
Special movies at the library program to beat winter break boredom:

I have been trying to locate tax forms for the library to distribute to the public, but I am having little luck with the IRS. If you need tax forms, you have a few options:
-Go to www.IRS.gov to download forms and print them out. Printing at the library is $.50 a page, but if requested, we can print duplex.
-If you made less than $58,000 last year, you may be eligible to file free online. Please see http://www.irs.gov/uac/Free-File:-Do-Your-Federal-Taxes-for-Free for details.
-If you would like to order paper tax forms, please call the IRS at 1-800-829-3676 to order up tp 10 different forms. You can also order up to 10 forms online at http://www.irs.gov/uac/Forms-and-Publications-by-U.S.-Mail. According to the website, please allow 7-15 business days for delivery.
If you have questions or need help, please feel free to contact the library at 485-7651, we will try to help in any way we can.
