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.

Our Children’s director Ms. Sherri is back, and so is our Wednesday Story Time! Check our calendar for a list of upcoming dates. We hope to see you there! A few details:
- Due to the current building maintenance project, we will be having Story Time in the Children’s area rather than the Community Room
- We’ll be skipping the crafts portion of the event for a few sessions due to space constraints
- Some things in the Children’s area (toys, puzzles, some computers) may be closed or inaccessible while Story Time is underway
Due to building maintenance and Food Truck Friday, Carthage Public Library will be closing at noon on Friday, September 14, 2018. We will re-open with normal operating hours on Saturday, September 15, 2018.
Programming is starting again this month! Join us next Monday (September 10) at 10 am for bilingual storytime with Ms. Janine. However, we will NOT be having our regular English-language storytime with Ms. Sherri next week as we originally planned. Ms. Sherri will definitely be resuming storytime within a few weeks though, and we’ll have details soon, so stay tuned!
Along with our building, our website is also undergoing renovation! Everything from the old site should be back very soon, slightly rearranged. In the meantime, contact us at 417-237-7040 if you have any questions.
