  1. Your comment about AARP taxes is essentially correct, but additional information is offered.
    We are sponsored by AARP Foundation. We also prepare taxes at the John and Judy Gay Library on Eldorado Mondays 10AM-2PM. We will be temporarily at Hall library on Monday 19, 26 Feb and Mar 5 due to elections being held in conference room where we prepare taxes. The link does contain the details I highlighted.

    Thanks for your community service announcement.
