Tax season is upon us and most printed tax forms are available at the library. Most tax forms are also just a click away. Head over to our tax guide where you will find direct links to the most frequently requested tax forms. You can then print them out from home or at the library. You will also see the AARP tax assistance schedule and the locations for VITA tax assistance.
Some forms such as the 1099 have to be originals and printed copies are not acceptable. These forms can be ordered by phone 1-800-829-3676 or you can visit the local IRS office:

HealthyBR.com has a mission “To identify and coordinate efforts aimed at healthy living and an active lifestyle into a unifying commitment to better health.”
The site is broken down into areas of focus, for example sections on healthy eating, projects, and being physically active. There is also a section listing local health services.
A great feature on the site is the calendar, which has a listing of healthy activities and related events taking place around the city. It makes getting involved much easier, from free exercise classes to getting healthy food from the farmers market.
A really valuable resource promoted on the site is MedLineBR, a 24-hour hotline staffed by registered nurses. They can provide free, quick and easy medical advice, suggest treatment options and refer callers to physician offices.
The MedlineBR phone number is 225-765-6906.
