Until recently forgotten and obscure, Frances Drake was a courageous fighter for the cause to end slavery. Even more unsettling to many of her Leominster, Massachusetts contemporaries was her ardent stand for gender equality. Not only did Mrs. Drake welcome to her home some of the most famous abolitionists, but she helped free the first fugitive captured in New England under the new fugitive slave law of 1850. Why then has she been largely ignored for nearly a century while her hometown celebrates the folklore of Johnny Appleseed? Come and learn how these two very different stories were developed and communicated through the years.

AARP Tax Aide

AARP-TAX-AIDEFree Tax help will be available at the Wadleigh Library from February 3rd to April 14th. The hours will be the same each week:

Tuesdays – 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The Wadleigh Library is an official Tax Form Repository. We will provide forms as we receive them from the federal and state government. We received a notice that the IRS will drastically reduce the number of forms they are sending this year, and that they will not be sending instruction booklets this year at all. We will post more information as it is received.

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.
