It’s got a foundation and they’ve just begun framing the walls! Our new educational and Makerspace building is coming along quickly and we are so excited for our community. Stop by to see our progress.
Join us Thursday, February 20th, at 10 am at your Carthage Public Library for a special partner project with the Wolfner Library, for ages 5 and up.
This hands-on program introduces various architectural concepts through Andrea Beaty’s book, Iggy Peck, Architect. You will not only have the opportunity to listen to the book, but also be able to feel tactile drawings of buildings and get to build your own creations inspired by the book.

It’s tax season again! We hope this information is helpful to our patrons:
Carthage Public Library does not have preprinted tax forms on hand this year, but you are welcome to use our computers to print tax forms from the IRS website and Missouri Department of Revenue. The standard price of 20¢ per page B&W, 50¢ color applies, and you must may for everything you print out. Printing tax forms is self-service only – library personnel cannot advise you which tax forms you need or offer any other assistance with taxes.
If you do need help with your taxes, an area organization, Carthage VITA, offers free income tax preparation assistance beginning February 7, 2020, by appointment only. Call 417-388-7609 for more information or to make an appointment. Please note that this service is not provided by the Library and VITA does not meet here for appointments as they did in previous years – you must contact them at that number directly.
Due to scheduled maintenance, the Library will be opening late at 1 PM on Monday, February 10, 2020.
The Library has two part time positions open for Circulation Library Clerks. Stop by the Library to pick up the information sheet and to fill out an application. Deadline is Feb. 14, 2020.
Don’t forget – Saturday, February 22 is the last day to turn in your bingo boards for the 2020 Winter Reading Program!
We are also starting a new reading program called 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten just for kids ages 0 to pre K. If you have a younger child in that age range, we encourage you to sign up in-library or at home, then stop by and pick up your packet.
