“Hooked on Books” Book Club for Intermediate Readers

Are you an intermediate reader who is ready to explore chapter books? Do you like to have fun? Are you “hooked on books?” Then our monthly after-school book club is for you! Each month we will explore a different genre or format.  This month, read Patricia Hermes's My America: Our Strange New Land, Elizabeth's Diary, then join Ms. Kerry for a book talk, a snack and fun activity.  (Recommended for intermediate readers)

Copies of this month's selection are available at the Children's circulation desk.

This month's genre/format: Historical Fiction

In 1609, Elizabeth Barker's family sails from Plymouth, England, to Jamestown, Virginia, establishing America's first permanent English colony. She and her family face many hardships -- scarce food, illness, even death -- but they are determined to make a home in their new land.

AARP Tax Aide

AARP TAX-AIDE volunteers are trained to assist in filing the basic income tax forms and schedules, including forms for earned income, retirement income, interest and dividend income, simple business income, itemized deductions, the earned income credit, and Child Tax and Education credits.  Volunteers are not trained to assist with depreciation, business returns, and complex financial income.  AARP Tax Aide assistance is by appointment only.  All appointments must be made by calling 508-624-6900.

You are asked to bring all your 2018 tax documents to your appointment.  You will require proof of identity (a photo ID) and a Social Security Card or letter from the Social Security Administration documenting all Social Security numbers.   Bring proof of health care coverage and the 1095-A if you purchased insurance on the MASS Connector.  Bring all income statements - wage statements (W2), interest statements (1099-I), dividend statements (1099-D), retirement income statements (1099-R), social security statements, and brokerage statements (1099-B), and tuition statements (1099-T).  Bring proof of real estate tax and water bill payments or rent payments. You most likely will not itemize deductions, but if you have mortgage statements, large charity contributions or medical expenses, bring those to see if you might benefit by itemizing.  It is important to bring your copy of your 2017 Federal and State tax return.  Not having the required forms will usually mean rescheduling another appointment at a future date.

Library staff does not offer tax advice or filing assistance.  Please consult a trained tax preparer.

AARP Tax Aide

AARP TAX-AIDE volunteers are trained to assist in filing the basic income tax forms and schedules, including forms for earned income, retirement income, interest and dividend income, simple business income, itemized deductions, the earned income credit, and Child Tax and Education credits.  Volunteers are not trained to assist with depreciation, business returns, and complex financial income.  AARP Tax Aide assistance is by appointment only.  All appointments must be made by calling 508-624-6900.

You are asked to bring all your 2018 tax documents to your appointment.  You will require proof of identity (a photo ID) and a Social Security Card or letter from the Social Security Administration documenting all Social Security numbers.   Bring proof of health care coverage and the 1095-A if you purchased insurance on the MASS Connector.  Bring all income statements - wage statements (W2), interest statements (1099-I), dividend statements (1099-D), retirement income statements (1099-R), social security statements, and brokerage statements (1099-B), and tuition statements (1099-T).  Bring proof of real estate tax and water bill payments or rent payments. You most likely will not itemize deductions, but if you have mortgage statements, large charity contributions or medical expenses, bring those to see if you might benefit by itemizing.  It is important to bring your copy of your 2017 Federal and State tax return.  Not having the required forms will usually mean rescheduling another appointment at a future date.

Library staff does not offer tax advice or filing assistance.  Please consult a trained tax preparer.

AARP Tax Aide

AARP TAX-AIDE volunteers are trained to assist in filing the basic income tax forms and schedules, including forms for earned income, retirement income, interest and dividend income, simple business income, itemized deductions, the earned income credit, and Child Tax and Education credits.  Volunteers are not trained to assist with depreciation, business returns, and complex financial income.  AARP Tax Aide assistance is by appointment only.  All appointments must be made by calling 508-624-6900.

You are asked to bring all your 2018 tax documents to your appointment.  You will require proof of identity (a photo ID) and a Social Security Card or letter from the Social Security Administration documenting all Social Security numbers.   Bring proof of health care coverage and the 1095-A if you purchased insurance on the MASS Connector.  Bring all income statements - wage statements (W2), interest statements (1099-I), dividend statements (1099-D), retirement income statements (1099-R), social security statements, and brokerage statements (1099-B), and tuition statements (1099-T).  Bring proof of real estate tax and water bill payments or rent payments. You most likely will not itemize deductions, but if you have mortgage statements, large charity contributions or medical expenses, bring those to see if you might benefit by itemizing.  It is important to bring your copy of your 2017 Federal and State tax return.  Not having the required forms will usually mean rescheduling another appointment at a future date.

Library staff does not offer tax advice or filing assistance.  Please consult a trained tax preparer.

Page to Screen Movie

Watch the movie The Hate U Give (PG-13), based on the bestselling and award-winning novel by Angie Thomas.  We'll have snacks and coloring pages to enjoy during the screening. 

Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives, and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right.

No registration required. This screening is open to grades 6-12, but this movie may not be appropriate for every tween or teen. Read this review on Common Sense Media for more information on the movie's content and themes.

AARP Tax Aide

AARP TAX-AIDE volunteers are trained to assist in filing the basic income tax forms and schedules, including forms for earned income, retirement income, interest and dividend income, simple business income, itemized deductions, the earned income credit, and Child Tax and Education credits.  Volunteers are not trained to assist with depreciation, business returns, and complex financial income.  AARP Tax Aide assistance is by appointment only.  All appointments must be made by calling 508-624-6900.

You are asked to bring all your 2018 tax documents to your appointment.  You will require proof of identity (a photo ID) and a Social Security Card or letter from the Social Security Administration documenting all Social Security numbers.   Bring proof of health care coverage and the 1095-A if you purchased insurance on the MASS Connector.  Bring all income statements - wage statements (W2), interest statements (1099-I), dividend statements (1099-D), retirement income statements (1099-R), social security statements, and brokerage statements (1099-B), and tuition statements (1099-T).  Bring proof of real estate tax and water bill payments or rent payments. You most likely will not itemize deductions, but if you have mortgage statements, large charity contributions or medical expenses, bring those to see if you might benefit by itemizing.  It is important to bring your copy of your 2017 Federal and State tax return.  Not having the required forms will usually mean rescheduling another appointment at a future date.

Library staff does not offer tax advice or filing assistance.  Please consult a trained tax preparer.
