Library temporarily closed

The Sikeston Public Library has made the difficult decision to close to the public, effective Wednesday, March 18 through Sunday, April 5. This is based on the actions of our local school district, as well as other libraries across Missouri.

We will be offering curbside service for library materials. If you have an existing hold that it ready, or have other titles that you would like to check out, call us at 471-4140. For your convenience, you can browse the library’s catalog at sikeston.missourievergreen.org

We are going to attempt virtual storytimes and online book talks.

We encourage you to follow us on Facebook to stay updated on the latest happenings with the library.

AARP Tax-Aide assistance available

The library is pleased to announce that tax preparation assistance will be available again this year at the library.

Volunteers from the AARP Tax-Aide program will be in the McAmis Community Room (main level) at the library from 12:30-3:30 p.m. on Thursdays, beginning on Thursday, January 30. They will assist taxpayers by filling out and filing simple tax returns. They will be filing both federal and state forms, including the Missouri PTC forms.

All tax filing will be done on a first-come, first-served basis; appointments will not be taken. Please be sure to bring all tax-related paperwork that you have received, including W-2 and 1099 forms for work performed, receipts for rent paid, and proof of Social Security income.

The library is not trained to give tax advice; instead, we rely on this great group of volunteers who have the training and experience to make sure that your tax filing is done correctly and thoroughly.
