2022 Tax Year Federal 1040 and all NYS Tax Forms are Available!

The Library has Tax Year 2022 Federal 1040 forms! We also have the New York State Tax IT-201 Forms. The Library has several other special New York State tax forms as well. Unfortunately, we have run out of the instruction booklets for both Federal and State. Ask a staff member for assistance locating the instructions online.

The Library will be CLOSED for 3 hours on Monday, April 10, 2023 from 1:00-4:00pm for staff development. The Library will be OPEN from 10:00am-1:00pm and 4:00-6:00pm that day.

New NCLS Catalog Information!

As a member library of North Country Library System, we’re excited to announce that we are updating our catalog! We are in the process of replacing the catalog we’ve been using for many years with a new, improved catalog! If you have questions, you can check out the NCLS FAQ page or get in touch with us!

This isn’t happening quite yet, though, so here’s what it means for you:

Now-April 11, you can keep using the current catalog like normal!

April 10: We will be CLOSED for 3-hours of Staff Development training regarding the new catalog from 1:00-4:00pm (see above)

April 12 is the last day to place holds (until after Go Live on April 26).

April 18 is the last day to access the online catalog or app (until after Go Live on April 26).

April 19-25 is our offline week. We aren’t closed, though! This means that we can check books out to you, but won’t be checking books in, can’t place holds, or make changes to accounts.

April 26 is Go Live! Our new catalog and a new app will be ready for you to use (assuming everything goes smoothly!). We’re so excited for you to get a look, and will keep you updated on any changes or delays.

May 1 and onward will be all of us getting everything customized for how YOU use the catalog. We’ll have details for you when we get closer!
