1. Happy tax day! Yes, it’s today; it wasn’t Friday. You’re not late until after midnight. NYPL’s Science, Industry and Business Library (SIBL) at Madison at 34th Street if offering tax prep assistance — today’s the last day! — to make it a little bit easier for you!

    (We didn’t know that comedian and film star Groucho Marx wrote a 1942 book about tax returns, either. But that’s the book jacket above. It’s from a collection of book jackets in the Library’s General Research Division.)

  2. Two Months ‘til Tax Time

    We know this isn’t a fun thought for a Friday… but, the Library is determined that you shouldn’t suffer during tax time this year. Through April 18, the Science, Industry & Business Library has tax experts on-site to help New Yorker’s file their returns. Let us ease the burden of tax preparation; if you earn less than $48K and have a valid e-mail address, visit the library at 188 Madison Avenue. You’ll be glad you did and we’ll be glad to help! It’s a win-win for everyone!
