Tax Forms Update for 2014

Wisconsin state tax forms arrived on January 14th - available while supplies last.

"When are you getting tax forms?" That's a question many patrons have been asking lately.  Unfortunately, we have some bad news. As a result of the 2015 Omnibus Appropriations bill, funding for the Tax Form Outlet Program - which supplies federal tax products for free to public libraries throughout the country - was drastically reduced. The only federal tax forms available for free at the library, once they arrive, will be:

  • 1040
  • 1040A
  • 1040EZ


The library will not be receiving any federal instruction booklets or other forms / schedules.

Library staff will be happy to print out any forms you may need (at a cost of $.10 per page). Alternately, patrons may order federal tax forms by mail by calling 800-829-3676. Forms are also available online at: http://www.irs.gov/Forms-&-Pubs

State tax forms are available at the library while supplies last. Patrons may request state tax forms by mail by calling 608-266-1961 or online at: http://www.dor.state.wi.us/html/formpub.html

Haiku Reviews - Our Reading Clubs Get Creative!

This week members of our two new reading clubs got creative at the library!  Readers wrote fun haiku reviews in order to book talk their selection for this month.  Unlike traditional book clubs, there are no assigned books.  Readers choose any book they'd like for that month and share their reading experience with the rest of the group - what they loved, what they didn't like, what they'd change, etc.  Shy?  No worries!  Prompts are provided each month to get the conversation flowing.  Bookin' It Up is our teen reading group for ages 13 & up and meets at the library on the fourth Thursday of the month at 2 p.m. during the summer.  Books N' Brew is the adult variation and meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. at Downhill Coffee (3 Harris Street in Ripon).

Do you have a haiku review that you'd like to share? Email submissions to canovan@riponlibrary.org for review.
