You won’t want to miss the library’s second annual “Love Your Local Artist” gala 5:30-7:30 p.m. Feb. 10 in the library’s chandelier area. This free event features music and refreshments. Support our local artists as they discuss, display, and sell their work. The event also features an “adopt-a-book” sale.
Come buy the library a much-needed title, and your name will be inscribed as the book’s donor. You’ll also get first dibs in checking the book out when it’s shelf-ready. It’s a great way to show your support and enhance our library’s book budget.
The Children’s Room hosts its annual Book Bingo for school-age children 2-3 p.m. Feb. 10 in the Storyboat. No registration is necessary.
We have lots of fabulous prizes to give away, and no child will leave empty-handed. Also, Bailey the Dog will be back to listen to young readers 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday in the library’s classroom. Reading to Bailey is a great way for new readers to increase their confidence. No registration is necessary.
The library continues to offer federal and state tax forms and instructions to the public. In its effort to have people e-file, the state of Wisconsin is now limiting the number of printed forms available at libraries. Our library is already running low on tax forms, so please only take what you need. If you don’t use your forms or instructions, the library would welcome the return of any unused forms.
Tax forms are also available on the IRS (www.irs.gov) and the Wisconsin Department of Revenue (www.revenue.wi.gov) websites. A gentle reminder: library staff is not allowed to give out tax advice, including what forms you need to file.
