  • We’re having our regular Story Time with Ms. Sherri on Wednesday, October 30th at 10 am.
  • We’ll be handing out candy at the library from 3 to 4:45 pm on Thursday the 31st for Halloween
  • We’re also closing an hour early on the 31st for Halloween, at 5 pm.
  • Don’t forget to vote on one of the amazing pumpkins if you stop by! They’re on display all around the children’s area.

Fire Safety Story Times

Two special Fire Safety story times next week!

The Carthage Fire Department will be joining us for both Monday Bilingual and Wednesday English story times (circumstances permitting, of course).

Bilingual story time with Ms. Janine is on Monday the 7th at 10 am, and English-language story time with Ms. Sherri is on Wednesday the 9th, also at 10 am.

We hope to see you here!

Tax Forms & Preparation Resources

Carthage Public Library will not be providing pre-printed tax forms or assistance this year. The following information is provided as a courtesy:

Federal Tax forms can be found at https://www.irs.gov/forms-instructions

Missouri tax forms can be found at https://dor.mo.gov/forms/

Patrons are welcome to use our internet computers to print tax forms at our standard black & white copy rate of .20 per page. Patrons must pay for everything they print out. It is the patron’s responsibility to find and print the forms they need. Library staff cannot answer tax-related questions or provide assistance other than help with printing.

If you need assistance with taxes, free income tax return preparation & e-file services will be available through Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) at Fairview Christian Church, 2320 S Grand Ave, Carthage, MO 64836. This is a free service for low to medium income taxpayers, prepared & e-filed by volunteers trained by the IRS.  Appointments are necessary. Call Zelma at 417-388-7609 to make an appointment. They will not be able to answer tax questions over the phone.
