It’s Time To File My Taxes. Can The Library Help Me?

While the library does not offer a tax preparation service or tax advice, we do have some tools that can help you with the process of filing your taxes. A list of these resources can be found on our Tax Information page.

Ever tried to recall that book or movie title you checked out a while ago, but just can’t do it? Now you can keep track of your past check outs with your online library account!

In the last Featured Services blog post, we discussed how to log into your account, renew your checked out items, and place holds. This time, we’ll go over some ways you can keep track of items that you’ve already checked out, as well as make a wish list of materials you might want to check out in the future.

Did you know you can place holds and renew your library items from home? Here’s how to get started!

If you’ve ever found yourself with a looming due date and couldn’t get to the library in time, you’ll be happy to learn that you can renew your items online, by logging into your account on the library’s website. To log in, first go to our home page, then click on the My TCCL tab on the red bar near the top of the page. If you’ve already logged into your online account before, simply type your username or library card number and password into the fields to log in.

Want To Use That Ereader You Got For Christmas To Check Out Library Books? Here’s How You Can Do It!

To get started, first go to our Ebooks, Audiobooks and More page.
