Use the Tigard Library? Fill in their annual survey

Mon, 2014-02-03 20:08
The Tigard Public Library is doing their annual survey. It asks for users to rate customer service throughout the library, and asks if people have used the library for job searches, among other questions.

Please fill in the survey online here. Paper surveys will also be available at the library from Sunday, February 2nd to Saturday, February 15th.

The Tigard Library director, Margaret Barnes, says, “Our survey is a way to touch base with citizens periodically. Over the years their responses have been crucial in helping us customize library services to meet the needs of the community. Now that we are closed on Thursdays, it is particularly important to ask for feedback.”

Tax help at WCCLS libraries

Mon, 2014-02-03 12:00
Tax season is upon us, and we have compiled a page of resources to help you get through it.

You'll find our information page at The page includes a list of which WCCLS member libraries will be distributing federal tax forms. (Remember that the state no longer distributes printed forms to libraries.)

We also include links to where you can download state and federal forms, as well as links to information about ordering printed forms from the state or federal governments.

Need assistance filing your taxes? The AARP's Tax Aide program may be able to help. They have locations throughout Washington County, and many are at WCCLS libraries. Our tax page links to the Tax Aide program locator, which will provide you with details and contact information.

Good luck!
