Spring is here; that means it must be tax time. To help ease the stress of tax season the Library is offering free income tax assistance sessions for eligible individuals (modest income and a simple tax situation) on Fridays throughout March and April from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. This service is provided by the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program which is run in collaboration between community organizations like the Library and the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The CRA provides coordinators and offers training and tax software. Thank you to the dedicated volunteers that annually provide this service for our residents. Appointments are required, please call the library to RSVP.
Spring also means spring-break for kids. If you are looking for affordable ways (remember it’s always free at the library) to keep your children or grandchildren busy and entertained, the Library has a number of programs and services to help.
During the week of March 21 – 26 we are offering special spring break programming including a Stop Motion Animation workshop on Monday, March 21 – Wednesday, March 23, from 1- 2:30pm. This workshop is for children eight years old and up; there is limited space and registration is necessary. On Wednesday March 23 it’s Movie Night at the Library; children are invited to watch HOP (rated PG) – doors open at 6pm.
Or maybe this spring break you are looking for project ideas for your child or the whole family; don’t forget we have a number of books and magazines that can help you out. If you want to build a tree house or go-cart, learn to knit or bake the best cupcakes, drop by the library and let us help you get started.
No matter what your plans are this spring consider making the library a regular part of your family routine. It is a great place to get inspired.
