Beginner and experienced knitters and crocheters are encouraged to meet at the library between 3:30 and 5:00 PM on Wednesdays to teach each other and to learn from each other. The library will provide space for crafters to meet and to socialize while working on their yarn projects. The library will have a limited amount of yarn, crochet hooks, and knitting needles for people to try the crafts before they invest money in needed equipment. Basic stitches will be taught and more advanced techniques can be researched through books and online resources. The first stitches learned will be used to make small items like dishcloths. Please call the library for additional information.

Tax forms

Posted by Ardyce on January 14th, 2015

We should be getting NYS tax forms soon. For a head start, here is a link to NY State Tax forms online: http://www.tax.ny.gov/forms/  ($.25 per page if you use our printers and ink).

We will not be sent any federal forms. Federal tax forms can be downloaded from the internet, ($.25 per page if you use our printers and ink). Go to http://www.irs.gov/Forms-&-Pubs where you can access and acquire both electronic and print media.

You can download irs.gov/Pub17 , a publication that covers the general rules for filing a federal income tax return. It supplements the information contained in your tax form instruction booklet. It explains the tax law to make sure you pay only the tax you owe and no more.
