DOWNTON ABBEY TEA TIME

Back by Popular Demand!


Saturday, February 14th at 1pm


Registration required.


Spend a lovely afternoon with Chef Maddox as you get in the mood for this wildly popular British mini-series! You’ll make and enjoy two great finger sandwiches as well as two "sweets" during our tea party, plus take the recipes so you can have your own Downton Abbey tea party. The sandwiches include smoked salmon & cucumber on a mini croissant and caramelized onion & blue cheese on toast points. Chef will also demonstrate toasted almond / lavender shortcakes with autumn fruit compote & lemon curd tart with Italian meringue.




FEDERAL TAX FORMS

This year, the library will receive supplies of three IRS forms: 1040, 1040A,
and 1040EZ. Unfortunately, we will not receive any instruction booklets for
these forms, nor other forms or instructions, due to IRS budget cuts.

All forms and instructions are available to read, print, or download on
the IRS website. You may also order paper copies of forms and instructions
from the IRS online or by calling 1-800-829-3676.
