Tax Filing 2015: Info and Links

Schmaling Memorial Library now has the following tax forms available on a first come, first serve basis:

  • IL-1040 Form (limit 2 per patron) and Instruction booklet (limit 1 per patron)
  • Schedule ICR (will be available by the end of the month and will alsoΒ  have a limit of 2 per patron)

In the event of the L-1040 Instruction booklets running out, we have two copies reserved: one for in library use only, and one for checking out (to patrons in good standing).

However, the following are several links that will hopefully assist you in the exciting endeavor of tax preparation: like printing the forms you specifically need, reading and/or printing the instructions for said forms, or even filing paperlessly (apparently that is not a word; oh well).

Highlight: Picture-Books In Winter

Photo of several winter-themed children's picture-books set out on the downstairs desk.

Summer fading, winter comesβ€”   
Frosty mornings, tingling thumbs   
Window robins, winter rooks,   
And the picture story-books.   
   
Water now is turned to stone
Nurse and I can walk upon;   
Still we find the flowing brooks   
In the picture story-books.   
   
All the pretty things put by,   
Wait upon the children’s eye,
Sheep and shepherds, trees and crooks,   
In the picture story-books.   
   
We may see how all things are,   
Seas and cities, near and far,   
And the flying fairies’ looks,
In the picture story-books.   
   
How am I to sing your praise,   
Happy chimney-corner days,   
Sitting safe in nursery nooks,   
Reading picture story-books?

β€” Robert Louis Stevenson
