We are so sorry, but due to lack of RSVP volunteers, the library will not be able to have our Tax Prep for Senior Citizens program this year. You can still get your taxes done in Morrisville; you just need to call Cornell Cooperative Extension at 315.684.3001 to make an appointment and meet there to do your taxes.
Join us Friday, Feb. 8, 2019, for Valentine Cards & Treats at 6:30 p.m. (There is a snow date of Saturday, Feb. 9, at 2 p.m., just in case.) Come make two valentines for a special someone and two sweet treat holders, too. Cost is $10 per set of four activities (payable the night of the program). Jackie Groves of Librarystampers Creations will demonstrate how to use stamps and other tools to create these unique items. This is open to ages 12 and up (but if someone younger wants to participate, they may do so with a parent or guardian present.). We must have five people signed up to have this event, so sign up now at the circulation desk.
