 Welcome to Sherman & Ruth Weiss Community Library

Tax Forms Update: Due to Federal government cutbacks, the IRS is encouraging people to file or obtain copies of tax forms online at the Federal forms. The library will receive paper copies of only the following Federal forms: 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ. These forms should arrive between the end of January and early February.

Paper copies of Federal instruction booklets and other forms/schedules will not be available at the library. Please call 1-800-829-3676 or go online to the Federal forms website listed above to obtain other forms/instructions that you need. You are welcome to use one of the library's public computers to find and print forms/instructions for $.20  per page.

Wisconsin state tax forms are on their way. You also may call 1-608-266-1961 or go online at Wisconsin forms.
