Tax Help for Low Income, Seniors Offered

Hamilton Public Library News

By Barbara Coger

(Hamilton, NY – Jan. 2012) Certified volunteer income tax consultants will be available at Hamilton Public Library to help low income families and people 60 years old and over complete their tax forms. These sessions are free and by appointment only.

Madison County low income families may call 697-3588 for appointments. Seniors may reach the RSVP tax consultant at 824-3361 starting Jan. 25.

Both federal and state tax forms are available at the library. We are still awaiting 1040 instruction booklets.

Although ebooks are becoming popular, don’t despair. We still have new books coming in all the time. Among the new mystery titles are Red Mist by Patricia Cornwell, Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich, V is for Vengeance, by Sue Grafton, Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James.

New biographies include Robert Massie’s Catherine the Great and Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. Any titles that are not available when you look for them may be requested in person, over the phone, or you may request them yourself from the Mid-York Library System web page.

As a reminder, the library is not currently accepting books for our fall book sale. The only items we can use at this time are gently used best sellers and children’s books. If you would like to donate these types of books, please bring them in during regular library hours. Books left outside the library risk weather damage.

The library is collecting eyeglasses, box tops for education, used inkjet cartridges, crayons, and dresses for Cinderella’s Closet.

Barbara Coger is the Library Director. The library is open Monday-Friday, 10 am – 7 pm, and Saturday, 10 am – 1 pm. Please call the library, (315) 824-3060, during these hours for assistance. The book drop on Broad Street is always open for your convenience. Check the library’s Facebook page for up-to-date information about programs and special events.
