Tax Season Begins

Free income tax preparation will again be offered by the Franklin Asset Building Coalition in Hill.  Apointments are now being accepted for  Monday, February 2 and Monday, February 9 from 4-7 PM at the Jennie D. Blake School. 

IRS-certified volunteers will provide the tax preparation, particularly for families that qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit.  For more information, or to make an appointment, please call 934-3315.

The AARP is also offering free help with tax return preparation each Monday and Wednesday, starting February 2 at the TRIP Center in Franklin.  This service is available for all ages.  For more info, please call 934-4151.

Did you know through e-filing a return and with direct deposit, a refund can be in a filer’s bank account in 7-10 days?  This service is not only fast, but may be free for many NH taxpayers.  Check out  for more information or stop by the library to begin your return on one of our computers.  Please call ahead if you would like assistance with e-filing your return today!


Prayers & Support for a Friend of the Library

Many members of our community are aware that Jeannine David was seriously injured in an auto accident in December 2008.  A website has been developed to track Jeannine’s progress.  Please visit often for updates.  Jeannine is a strong woman, and will fight hard to overcome this obstacle.  Please continue to keep Jeannine in your thoughts and prayers.  Hope and prayer can be incredibly powerful.

To describe Jeannine as a generous person, would be an understatement.  For many years, she has given countless hours of her time in support of the library and other local organizations, her family, and friends.  Jeannine’s kindness and compassion have touched many lives in our community.  Her selflessness inspires all who know her. 

To show support, and somehow give back to this wonderful woman, a “cash drive” has been organized to benefit Jeannine and Gary.  Collection jars are located at the library and town hall, JD Blake School, Hill Village Store, and the Hill Irving.  Donations will be used to purchase gas/prepaid debit cards to help cover travel costs for Gary and his family.  All contributions are greatly appreciated.
