The Art Forger by B. A. Shapiro

Boston painter Claire Roth has survived financially by painting reproductions, so when influential gallery owner Aiden Markel arrives with a bizarre proposal–her own show if she will forge a copy of a Degas, one of the pictures stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum–she says yes.                                  Publisher Summary

Copies are available at the Main Desk. Newcomers always welcome.

AARP Tax Aide

February 3rd to April 15th

Free Tax help will be available at the Wadleigh Library from February 3rd to April 15th. The hours will be the same each week:

Tuesdays – 9:30am to 2:00pm
Thursdays – 3:30pm-6:30pm

Appointments are not required.

The Wadleigh Library is an official Tax Form Repository. We will provide forms as we receive them from the federal and state government.

Since 1968, AARP Tax-Aide volunteers have helped nearly 50 million low- to middle-income taxpayers, many of whom are aged 60 or older. Tax-Aide volunteers (IRS Certified) are trained to assist with filing the 1040 Form and the more standard of the schedules, including Schedules A and B. Electronic filing (e-filing) is offered at the Wadleigh Memorial Library site, with no charge to the taxpayer. E-filing ensures more accurate tax returns and faster processing of tax refunds.
