Tax Forms…You Need ’Em – We Got ‘Em.  We have tax forms available in a variety of formats.  All library locations have free copies of federal and state tax forms, and most locations have municipal and school district forms.  Federal, state, and school district forms can also be printed for no charge from web sites accessible on the library’s Internet computers.  Although the library does not offer tax advice or interpretations of instructions, we can however help you contact the appropriate institution for assistance. 

Young Adult Book Discussion

The Mercer County District Library's Youth Department along with the Celina High School Book Discussion Group are joining together to have a combined discussion each month. The choice for February is the Uglies by Scott Westerfeld which is about Tally who is about to turn sixteen, and she can't wait. Not for her license --for turning pretty. In Tally's world, your sixteenth birthday brings an operation that turns you from a repellent ugly into a stunningly attractive pretty and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to have a really great time. In just a few weeks Tally
will be there. But Tally's new friend Shay isn't sure she wants to be pretty. She'd rather risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world -- and it isn't very pretty. The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever. The group is open to all ages from 9 to 90. To join the group, stop by the library and pick up your copy of the book and let us know you would like to come to the discussion on Thursday, March 15 at 7pm.
