PAWS For Reading

It’s beginning to feel like old times again in the library. Mrs. Kim had a full house this morning for Mother Goose Story Time for the first time since before the pandemic. Our Friends of the Library have been working hard sorting through many boxes of new donations for the ongoing book sale. The Board Room and quiet areas of the library are being used for tutoring sessions and meetings more often. People that we haven’t seen for a couple of years are coming back in to find books to check out. Dogs are in the library for PAWS for Reading again!
Emerging and beginning readers of all ages will enjoy practicing reading with Amanda Corman’s trained therapy dogs at PAWS for Reading. April PAWS for Reading dates are scheduled for Wednesdays, April 13, 20, and 27 from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm. Colt and Charlie are sweet dogs who enjoy helping children learn to read. Pre-readers are also welcome! You may read books to a pre-reader in the PAWS program. Reading to a patient, non-judgmental canine friend can help people feel less nervous and self-conscious about sounding out words.

We can print off tax forms for you from IRS.gov at the library, but we did not receive any federal tax booklets or forms this year. We do have a limited supply of Indiana state forms to pick up. You can always fill your taxes out online, using our public computers, but if that doesn’t appeal to you, you can request free copies of IRS tax forms and instructions be mailed to you by calling 800-829-3676.
