aarp tax aide

We offer free in-person tax preparation to anyone who needs it. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers are trained to assist you in filing many income tax forms and schedules. However, the Volunteer Protection Act requires that our volunteers stay within the scope of tax law set by the IRS for the program.

clearing negative energy tv.jpg

Join Dr. Carol Pollio, Elemental Space Clearing® Practitioner, to learn how to clear your space of negative energy. Based on indigenous cultural practices, this workshop shows you how to restore peace and tranquility to your home.

This is a repeat of the same program Dr. Carol offered back in January. Due to popular demand and the fact that many people weren't able to attend, we're happy to offer this informative, entertaining class for all of our interested patrons.

reel talk film club tv.jpg

Due to popular demand, the library will be starting a club for adults who would like to meet and discuss film! Once a month, the Reel Talk Movie Club will come together to watch a movie of their choice and then discuss their thoughts on it.

Our first meeting in March will be about getting to know each other and what movies we like, choosing a regular time to meet, and deciding on a first movie or two to watch as a group.

Hosted by our friendly programming librarian Tyler, this group promises to be fun and engaging! We sincerely hope you'll join us.

aarp basic drivers course tv.jpg

The AARP will be hosting a four-hour refresher course on driving safety for those interested. This class is intended only for those that have taken the AARP Basic Drivers Safety course in the past. The class will cost $15 for AARP members, and $20 for non-members. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a certificate that could be used to lower their auto insurance.

Registration is required with limited seating. If you plan on attending, please remember to bring a bagged lunch, as there will be a half-hour break during the course that will not allow attendees ample time to leave the building for sustenance. If you have any questions, please give the library a call at 302-227-8044.

women soldiers and spies tv.jpg

This presentation addresses those women who chose to become soldiers and spies during the Civil War. See how their ingenuity and society's perception of them allowed them to perform successfully in both these endeavors. Learn why they selected the path they did and how they were able to function effectively as soldiers and influence history as spies. Discover how their will to survive the war and to create a future for themselves and their families drove them from their traditional roles and into a new world for women. Performed in period costume.
