AARP Tax Preparation Canceled

Posted by awade on

Good Morning,

We are very sorry to inform you that due to circumstances beyond their control, AARP will not be providing free tax preparation at the library this year. We understand how important this service is for our patrons and community. To help fill this need we are currently putting together a list of locations still providing this service and once this list is complete we will post it on our website. We hope to be able to offer this service again in 2022.

We would also like to remind you that the library will be closed on Monday, February 15th in honor of Presidents’ Day. WiFi will be available in the Bowling Green, Dawn, and Ladysmith parking lots; login information is posted on the doors to these buildings.

Thank you for your understanding,

Megan Upshaw

AARP Tax Preparation

Posted by awade on

Good morning everyone,

We are aware of a recent article in the Free Lance Star about AARP tax preparation at the Bowling Green branch.  Unfortunately, a miscommunication at the AARP office resulted in incorrect information being published.  At this time, no dates have been set for tax preparers to be in the library nor are we taking any appointments.  We also have not been provided with tax packets or any other paperwork to give out to patrons.  Once we are able to reopen our buildings to the public, we should have more information on when the packets will be available and when we’ll be able to start making appointments.  We encourage everyone to check out our website and Facebook page for the most up-to-date information.

Thank you for your continued support as we try to navigate these uncertain times.

Good morning everyone!

I hope that your 2021 is going well and that you’re staying safe!  The library is continuing to provide curbside service at our Bowling Green, Dawn, and Ladysmith branches.  Feel free to call your local branch for more information.

Here are some updates about what’s going on at Caroline County Library!

Thank you Caroline Chapter of the NAACP and DentaQuest!

I’d like to extend our sincerest thanks to the Caroline County Chapter of the NAACP and DentaQuest for sponsoring our Storytime and STEAM to go kits this fall and winter.  With their help we were able to create over 600 kits for the kids of Caroline County.  There are still a few left so call your local branch for curbside pickup.

Starting in February, we’ll be offering new STEAM kits each month, also sponsored by these two great organizations.  While these new kits won’t include a free book, each month will have a theme and a fun project for either younger or older kids.  February’s theme is Shadow Science.  Call your branch for availability.

AARP Tax Preparation

IRS-trained volunteers with the AARP have been preparing to offer their free tax preparation services at the Bowling Green branch, but these plans have been put on hold because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  We are unable to make any appointments at this time.  Please check back in a few weeks by calling the Bowling Green branch at 804-633-5455 or visiting our website and Facebook page for any updates.

We appreciate your patience and support!
