Important update – Tax Forms and Publications

US INCOME TAX FORMS

Due to funding cuts passed by Congress, the distribution of tax forms to libraries has been significantly impacted.  We will only be receiving 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ  FORMS.  There will be no instruction books available.  We can print any additional forms you may need for .20 a page or you may visit IRS.gov and print whichever you need from your own computer.

We do have WV State booklets/forms available until supplies run out.

Book Release Event for Cynthia Hagan

Looking for something fun to do next Tuesday evening?  Then stop by Summersville Public Library on Tuesday, January 27 at 6pm, where local author and award winning screen writer Cynthia Hagan-Kallai will be holding a book release party for her debut novel, The Disappearance of Daniel Klein.  The novel, set in Nazi occupied Europe, tells the story of Daniel Klein, a boy magician with mismatched eyes (one blue, one green), who, while imprisoned in a concentration camp, captures the dark interest of Nazi research scientist Karl Vendel.

Cynthia began her writing career in the film industry and is an optioned and commissioned screenwriter.  She is also a documentarian and a credited story researcher/story consultant on the World War II documentary, Operation Valkyrie: The Stauffenberg Conspiracy.  Her original screenplay, The Disappearance of Daniel Klein, upon which her novel is based, was chosen by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as a Nicholl Fellowship top 50 screenplay in 2013.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the party (as well as anywhere else books are sold), and light refreshments will be served.

What’s Mrs. Hayhurst’s Class Reading?

Mrs. Hayhurst has a 3rd/4th grade room full of readers, she has been putting her classroom card to good use by bringing in lots of recreational reading materials for her students.  We visited her class in November kids-readingto find out what everyone thought of their books.  Here’s what they had to say…

Kyler - Mr. Docker is Off his Rocker, Dan Gutman.  i like it becuase it is funny.  All the My Weird School books are funny and sometimes they’re weird.

Christian – Mr. Carbles is Losing His Marbles, Dan Gutman. It’s interesting. It’s Weird, Kind of insane. And it’s super good. They go crazy inside of it.

Kahli – Esio Trot, Roald Dahl. This guy is real funny and he likes Mrs. Silver and he knows she has a turtle and want to magically make the turtle grow bigger so she will like him. It makes the story sound awesome!

Emily – The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle by Washington Irving. This book has action, adventure and some of them have a little humor. They are both classics and I find all of the classics to be the best books.

Kala - Never Girls, It was really good, I haven’t finished it but I really like it.  It’s fascinating because it has Tinker Bell in it and I’ve watched her before and shes the same in the book.

Kurbi – The Lunch Lady and the Video Game Villain by Jarrett Krosoczka It was really weird and strange. Th Lunch lady was trying to figure out who was taking all the power from the school and has to battle a villan with special gloves.

Karson – Goosebumps Most Wanted How I Met My Monster by R. L. Stine it’s a good book, it tells a lot about a monster and its about this boy who keeps having nightmares and he actually turns into a monster himself! His mom doesn’t believe he turns into a monster.

Rebel - Bad Kitty vs. Uncle Murray by  Nick Bruel The cat is actually a girl and it’s real name is Kitty. She causes Uncle Murry a lot of problems. Once in the book Uncle Murray yelled for Bad Kitty and she jumped right out at him. The book is really funny and the cat does scream. A lot.

Tiernan – Goosebumbs Horrorland Hall of Horrors by R. L. Stine This book is good, it’s awesome. The cat looks so cool in the picture and the scary stuff is awesome.

Chase – So you Want to be President by Judith St. George I like it because it has the Presidents in it. And I really do like it becuase it’s funny and I learned about Presidents i hadn’t heard of.

Angel – Civil War on Sunday – Magic Tree House  by Mary Pope Osborne You learn a lot about the Civil War and it’s a really good book. it has a lot of details.

Ryan - The Lunch Lady the bake Sale Bandit by Jarrett Krosczka- It was interesting, when Brenda stole the goodies. I liked it.

Alex – The Lunch Lady and the Video Game Villain – Jarrett Krosczka It was funny when Lunch lady beats him up. My favorite was Lunch Lady and the BAke sale  the little guy who drives the buses got beat up it was funny.
