Donations Needed for Silent Auction Fundraiser
February 9 - 14

Our annual Friends of the Library Silent Auction fundraiser is rapidly approaching. We are currently accepting donations of new (or nearly new) items, themed gift baskets, or services. Please consider a contribution to support our Friends and all the good work they do for the library. The Friends sponsor many of our programs for children and adults, and cover the cost of summer reading performers. Thank you for your support!

Tax Forms

The IRS budget for forms and publications was significantly cut by Congress. For this reason, we will receive only tax forms 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ, in limited quantities, hopefully by the end of January. No instruction booklets will be provided by the IRS to the library.

You will be able to view and download forms and instructions at, or you can go to to have forms mailed to you. You may also call 1-800-829-3676 to order tax products to be delivered to you by mail.

We will be able to download forms and print them for you at the library for a charge of 10 cents per page.

Michigan tax forms will start to ship the middle of February.

Cabin Fever Challenge
January & February

The Cabin Fever Challenge has begun: it's fun, it's free, and it's a great way to get your kids out of the house before everyone goes "cabin fever crazy" this winter!


Come to the library any day or every day through January and February. We have a cabin playhouse for children that needs decorating, books that need to be read, and games that need to be played.

As you read, write your name on a slip of paper and turn it in: we'll be giving out small prizes!


Each week, there will be a new, special activity out for kids to try too.

January 19 -24: play on our pretend ski slope

January 26 - 31: make papercraft creations

February 2 -7: make a bird zipline

February 9 - 14: make a board game

February 16 - 21: play "Find It"
