Ah yes, the wonderful month of January is here. There is an exciting event that happens starting in January – and that is Tax Season. To answer your most pressing questions – yes, the library has ordered tax forms for this year; no, they have not arrived even though we ordered then last fall; yes, we will put them out just as soon as we receive them. According to information received from the IRS, the only forms that we, the library, will be receiving will be the 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ. We will be receiving a few Instruction books. No other forms will be sent to us and we cannot reorder any, so when we run out, we are out. We also are not allowed to give out any ‘red-letter” forms, which include W2s or any of the 1099s. Those forms must come from your employer. The IRS has forms available for download at http://www.irs.gov. If you wish to print any forms here at the library, you must pay for the printing which is $0.10 cents per page. The library staff is not able to give out any type of tax advice including which form to use. If you have any tax questions, please contact a certified tax-preparer. Thank you for your cooperation and patience.

What a start to the New Year it has been here at the library. The library is excited to be sharing all our wonderful materials and services with all our patrons in 2016. We hope that everyone has had a great start to the year. We want everyone to know that the library is THE place to come to this year. Why? Because we have books, magazines, newspapers, all manner of computer resources and programming for all ages available for you here. And we offer these books, magazines, newspapers, all manner of computer resources and programming for all ages to you for FREE! We love being a free resource here in the community. We do charge small fees for printing, copying, faxing, and renting the meeting room. But the knowledge we impart is always FREE. Come and see us today! And as brief reminder, the Elma Ross Public Library will be closed on Monday, January 18 in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

*Sing the following to the tune of “Jingle Bell Rocks”*
Jingle book, jingle book, jingle book rock
Jingle books swing and jingle books ring
Snowin’ and blowin’ up bushels of fun
Now the jingle book-hop has begun.

Jingle book, jingle book, jingle book rock
Jingle books chime in jingle book time
Dancin’ and prancin’ in Jingle Book Square
In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it’s the right time
To read the night away
Jingle book time is a swell time
To go readin’ in a one-horse sleigh

Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet
That’s the jingle book rock!
