Almost 300 guests had a wonderful time at our Love Your Local Artist event on Feb. 8. We were fortunate to view the work of 38 talented artists. Thank you to everybody who attended the event for making it a special evening, for supporting our local artists and for “adopting” a book at the book sale. We would especially like to thank the Friends of the Library for their help and appetizers, and Kevin Hoeschen’s string quartet for their lovely music. Also, thank you to Belknap Liquor & Lounge, Keyport Lounge & Liquor, Superior Public Museums (Fairlawn), Saratoga Liquor, and Ray Nelson for donating products and services to support this successful event.
The Friends of the Library meet at 10:30 a.m. Monday in the library classroom. Everyone is welcome.
Please join us as plans are made for the April book sale.
Due to recent legislation related to the fiscal cliff, the library will have no federal tax forms or instructions from the IRS until the beginning of March. However, all the forms are now available at www.irs.gov. The Wisconsin Department of Revenue also has tax forms at www.revenue.
wi.gov. Upon request, the IRS will still mail tax forms and instructions to your home. Call 800-829-3676 to order federal tax forms. Call 608-266-1961 to have Wisconsin tax forms mailed to your home.
