Tax forms?


Due to federal budget cuts and the popularity of electronic filing, only a limited number of the most popular tax forms will be sent to libraries this year. No instruction booklets with tax tables will be shipped. Further, shipment of available forms has been delayed. Ocee Manager says they’re hoping for delivery in early February. Those without internet access can use the library’s computers to visit the IRS website. Copies of forms may be printed at the library for 10 cents a page.

Warm Thanks!


A big thank you to all who donated winter-wear at Ocee for North Fulton Community Charities.  An estimated 100 coats/outerwear were collected - as well as scarves, gloves, and even an electric blanket. On NFCC’s Warm Coat Day in November nearly 1500 winter items were distributed. Due to our unusually cold temps, we’ll take donations until the next NFCC mobile visit on Wednesday 28 January.
