51 children attended the second of three RIF programs last week. Each child that attended was treated to an exceptional skit performed by members of the NCHS FBLA and directed by Children’s Librarian Yvonne Jensen. The children also created their own “pirate” hats and eye patches, with assistance from other members of FBLA. We are very grateful for the help from the FBLA students and Candy Dooper, FBLA sponsor, these programs would not be possible without them. Watch for the third and final program on Wednesday, April 13.

Income tax forms as well as IRS publications are available at the library. Many forms are available at no charge; however some require a copying charge. Forms and publications are also available online at

Copies are available at the library.
