Did you know you can get a one-on-one appointment with a librarian, to help you with your research?

We’re always available to help you when we’re at the reference desk, of course. But if you’re working on a special project, or you’re really stumped on how to get started, you can use our Consultations service, too.

How’s it work? Easy: You tell us what you need to research, we’ll do a bit of work figuring out the best resources for you to use, and then we’ll meet with you to show you what we’ve learned. It’s a great system — we get a chance to prepare some information, and you’ll get a focused, personal session dedicated to your project!

So send us an email, using our Consultation Registration form, the next time you need a hand with a big research project. We’re glad to help!

Even though lots of people wait until the very last minute to do their taxes, you can always start early…

To help you do that, we have New York State tax forms in the lobby of Crumb Library. Stop by and pick up what you need. We don’t have the federal tax forms, though — you can find all of your federal tax forms and instructions at http://www.irs.gov. If you prefer online forms, the New York State Department of Taxation also has the forms online, at http://www.tax.state.ny.us/.

And, if you want to, the IRS site also offers you help on how to file your taxes online. Online filing = faster refund = good news.

Happy filing!
