Remembering Pete Seeger

When I was a little girl, my mother played LPs of Pete Seeger on our stereo system. My mother loved folk music and Pete Seeger was one of her favorites. She also loved The Weavers. The Weavers were formed in November 1948 by Ronnie Gilbert, Lee Hays, Fred Hellerman, and Pete Seeger.

The Weavers popularized such songs as “Goodnight Irene”, “If I Had a Hammer”, and “Kisses Sweeter Than Wine.”

Tax Season

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year — tax filing season! The Waltham Public Library has hard copies of some of the IRS forms, including the 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ. The reference staff can also print out up to 2 copies of the federal forms from the IRS website or the state forms from the Massachusetts Department of Revenue website. If you request this service, you must know the exact number of the form that you need. Patrons can print out their own forms using any of the public computers in the library.
Here are a list of resources to get you through tax season, including contact information for the Internal Revenue Service and the Massachusetts Department of Revenue, as well as services which provide free tax help. Good luck!
