Sunday hours are back! The library will be open from 2-5pm on Sundays through February and March. Sunday hours are funded by the State Aid to Public Libraries program.
2016 Tax forms are now arriving at the library. We currently have IRS forms 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ, as well as instruction booklets for all three forms. IRS schedules have not yet arrived, but are expected soon. We also have Massachusetts state resident and non-resident tax booklets, which include both forms and instructions.
All tax information may be found on the second floor, next to the copier. Both forms and instructions are also available to be printed from home on IRS.gov and Mass.gov.
Rona is one person, but many voices. Through her, skies talk, turtles sing, and magic happens! She’ll have you dancing, swaying in your seats, making funny noises, singing, and laughing, as she shares stories from the silly to the serious, from the mysterious to the monstrous. This event is thanks to a Topsfield Cultural Council grant and the Friends of the Topsfield Library. There is no sign up required and it is open to all ages!
