NEED A TUTOR?

Mt. Pleasant Regional Library has become a gathering place for students and their tutors in the afternoons.  Sometimes we run out of space.

If you need a tutor, we cannot recommend one, but we do have a file with business cards for tutors.  Ask at the reference desk to see the "tutor" file. 

They tutor a variety of subjects such as Math and Reading.  Most of them have a specialty.

We also have books that can help students.

Stop by the reference desk if you have questions.

We are having a program to help parents and students find out about the new SAT.  No reservations needed.  We hope to see you Wednesday, February 24, at 6:30.

Thanks for reading.

IT'S TAX TIME

Need help with your taxes?  They seem to get more complicated every year, don't they?
The AARP will prepare and e-file your taxes.  It cannot be anything complicated, and they don't do businesses.

Beginning February 5, they will be here at the Mt. Pleasant Regional Library most Mondays and Fridays from 1:00- 5:00 in the auditorium.  It is first come-first served.  There will be a sign-up sheet on the auditorium door at 10:00 a.m. on the days they come.  Senior citizens receive priority. 

What's the charge?  It's free, and the tax preparers are trained volunteers.

Able to prepare your own taxes? The IRS sends the library some basic tax forms. For tax forms we don't have, we can print them for 10 cents a page, or you can use our computers to print them.

We also have J. K Lasser's "Your Income Tax" book at the reference desk if you have questions.  Staff are not allowed to answer tax questions.  So, please don't ask which tax form you need!

For the AARP to prepare your taxes you will need your social security card, picture I.D and last year's return for each person filing.

Please call us at 843-849-6161 for more information.

Thanks for reading.

BOOK REVIEW

The PastThe Past
by Tessa Hadley


"A novel about a family vacation is often used as a device to bring out the worst flaws of the characters; here, it is used to bring out the best of Hadley's writing talent. She brings the family together, introducing them one by one: Harriet, the outdoorsy one; Alice, the dramatic one; Fran, the motherly one; Roland, the scholarly brother. The siblings, along with assorted children, spouses, and a young friend, spend three weeks in the crumbling house that belonged to their grandparents, trying to decide what must be done with it. Readers who enjoy character-driven novels, such as ones by Kate Atkinson, Margaret Drabble, or Jane Gardam, will welcome this novel."
—Yvette Olson, Magnolia's Bookstore, Seattle, WA

This book has recently arrived at Charleston County Public Library.  Does this sound like something you would enjoy reading?
