Tax Forms

During tax season, mid-January to mid-April, the Reference Department makes available copies of the most-requested Federal forms and schedules, as well as basic packages of New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts forms. Throughout the year, the Reference Department keeps back-up originals of Federal forms for past years and can assist tax payers in downloading forms from the IRS website.

 

Community bulletin board for local events

We post announcements of events only for thirty days. Posters, signs, flyers, and other items for the bulletin board should be left at the Welcome Desk to be initialed and posted by Library staff. We will put up notices for any kind of event as long as it has a specific date.

Flyers, brochures, and other informational items in quantity may also be left at the Library’s Welcome Desk. Library staff will display materials of interest in the information kiosk near the bulletin board as space becomes available.
