Tax Help

AARP Tax Help

UPDATE: All of our tax appointment slots are now full.

We have limited tax appointments available at the Main Library courtesy of AARP! Appointments will be a bit different this year.

  1. Appointments can be scheduled in person or by calling the library at (309) 444-2241.
  2. Every tax filer will have two appointments scheduled one week apart (at the same time slot).
    • Appointment 1- You will bring in everything you need to file your taxes and your already filled out information packet*.
    • Appointment 2- (which will be at the same time a week later) You will review and sign your completed return.

*Prior to your first appointment, you must have the information packet already filled out.  There WILL NOT be time to fill it out at your first appointment. Information packets are available for pick up at the information desk at the Main Library.

Main Library Interior Renovation Project

Beginning in spring 2021, Washington District Library (WDL) will undertake an interior
renovation project in the Main Library. The renovation has two goals: 1) to replace and update
furniture, flooring, and wall coverings that have been well-used by the public in the twelve years since the library was built; and 2) to reconfigure the layout of the library’s furnishings to better serve the evolving needs of library patrons.

Because previous Boards and directors have managed WDL’s finances so well, the cost of the
refresh project will come entirely from the library’s reserves. No referendum will be issued, and there will be no tax increase to cover the cost of the refresh project. As the planning stage comes to an end and a timeline for the project is finalized, WDL will provide details and examples of the changes in early 2021.

Questions about the project can be directed to WDL Director Lexie Walsh at
lwalsh@washingtondl.org.

Introducing Book Boxes!

Beginning Monday, September 14th, you will be able to sign up for the WDL Book Box program, via our website. Participants will receive a box a month for three months (the inaugural program will have boxes in October, November and December). Each box will contain 1-3 library books hand selected for you, as well as 3-5 items (treats and other goodies) that you get to keep! Library books and boxes will need to be returned.

We have boxes for Adults, Teens and Tweens.

Please note: Spots in the book box program are limited. Once we have reached the maximum number of participants for an age group, additional applicants will be placed on a wait list.
