Book Donations Requested 

Literacy Volunteers Valley Shore is planning a big used book sale in May. They are looking for donations of books in good condition to put in the sale. Donations can be dropped off at the Literacy Volunteers office on the lower level of the Westbrook Public Library from 9 to 2 Monday through Thursday when the office is open. Drive around to the back of the building and you’ll see the office at the south end of the building. Any questions call Literacy Volunteers at 860 399-0280 or email info@literacy.org

Tax Forms, Booklets, and Help

Forms and booklets have been slow to arrive this year. So far we have forms 1040 and 1040EZ, and the 1040 booklet. We can photocopy or print out other forms as needed. Up to 10 copies or print outs are free of charge. AARP tax volunteers will be at the library Monday mornings in the community room beginning February 26 through April 9. These sessions are by appointment only. Call the Estuary office in Old Saybrook at 860 388-1611 to make an appointment. The Henry Carter Hull Library in Clinton is hosting VITA tax volunteers who help younger folks with their taxes. Call the library in Clinton at 860 669-2342 to make an appointment there.

Please note that Medicare Counseling is no longer available at the library.
