She risked everything to stop an unjust war. Her government called her a traitor. Based on world-shaking true events, Official Secrets tells the gripping story of Katharine Gun (Keira Knightley), a British intelligence specialist whose job involves routine handling of classified information. One day in 2003, in the lead up to the Iraq War, Gun receives a memo from the NSA with a shocking directive: the United States is enlisting Britain's help in collecting compromising information on United Nations Security Council members in order to blackmail them into voting in favor of an invasion of Iraq. Unable to stand by and watch the world be rushed into an illegal war, Gun makes the gut-wrenching decision to defy her government and leak the memo to the press. So begins an explosive chain of events that will ignite an international firestorm, expose a vast political conspiracy, and put Gun and her family directly in harm's way.

The Wantagh Library is once again hosting IRS-Certified AARP Tax-Aide Foundation tax preparers who will be available every Tuesday from February 11 through April 14, 2020 from 10am - 2pm. This program is aimed at low to moderate income taxpayers with simple tax returns that can be prepared in less than one hour. Taxpayers with complicated tax returns (more than 12 documents) or out-of-scope subjects will be advised to seek professional tax preparation assistance as will those with incomes exceeding $100,000.

Taxpayers must bring

- Social Security Cards for everyone listed on the tax return, this includes any dependents

- A valid photo ID

- Last year’s tax return and all tax-related documents

Please remove the documents from their envelopes prior to your appointment. Joint tax returns require both spouses to be present to sign necessary documents. This year there is an extended intake form that you can pick up from the library prior to your appointment. Please call the library to make an appointment, or for more information visit our website. No shows for appointments without notification will not be given a new date.
