Tax forms

Tax season  is upon us once again. We will NOT be providing tax forms again this year, due to Federal and State mailing out fewer and fewer forms. BUT, you can use our computers to print out any forms you need through the following websites:

www.irs.gov (federal)
www.revenue.state.il.us/taxforms/ (state)

All black and white printouts are 10 cents a page. Please let a staff member know if you need any help finding the form you need.

Did you know?

Enjoy working on jigsaw puzzles? Need to get out of the house on those chilly days?

The library is playing host to the creation of the world's largest jigsaw puzzle--it's 40,000 pieces and split into 10, 4,000 piece parts! This will be a community driven art project. A section at a time, we will have the jigsaw puzzle on the tables upstairs by the paperbacks, allowing any person to sit down and work on it.

When it is entirely finished, the donor plans to then donate the final piece to a facility that can house it. Fully put together, the puzzle will be 6.25 ft. tall and 22.25 ft. long!
