A tisket, a tasket, bid on your favorite basket! From April 12 through April 26th bid on a variety of baskets filled with goodies donated by local merchants and Friends. Check out the baskets in the Wixom Library display case…goodies include U of M football tickets, coupons to local restaurants, a wine tasting, and lots of other wonderful items. Sponsored by the Friends of the Wixom Library, all proceeds are part of the Million Penny Project.
During the month of April, you can drop off non-perishable food items to benefit Gleaners Community Food Bank. From April 11 - 17, we will offer a Food for Fines program. For every non-perishable food item you donate during these dates, $1.00 will be forgiven from your fines, with a maximum of $5.00 forgiven per library card. The food drive is all month long, so even if you can't stop by during the fine forgiveness week, you can still stop off food items anytime during the month of April. This program is a collaborative effort organized by Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeast Michigan and local libraries.
We have received most tax forms. We have the 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ forms and instruction booklets. We have received all state forms as well. You can obtain and print federal forms online or visit the Library for assistance locating and printing forms. State tax information and forms are available online. Printing from public computers is 10 cents per page. Stop in or call the library to see if we have what you need. The 2014 tax filing deadline is Tuesday, April 15th.
The Library would like to thank the Wixom Meijer for their extremely generous donation of $3000 this December. The donation will be used to purchase iPads for the Children's Department and for upcoming programming needs. This helps us to continue to provide high-quality programs to our patrons and to improve our Children's Department technology. Thank you Wixom Meijer!!
