Tax forms update

In response to patron need, we have printed out copies of the 1040 tax form, and the associated schedules A-E, as well as the state IT 201 form. These forms are available to library patrons although we do request a donation to cover our printing costs.  We also have a couple of copies of the 1040 and IT 201 instructions available to check out, as well as non-circulating reference copies.

**Please know that all tax forms are available online and we are able to print out any form you may need. Just come in and let us know which forms you require and we can look them up and print them out for you.**

We have not yet received any tax forms from the the IRS or NYS Department of Taxation yet, and I do not know when they will be coming -although I hope soon.

The Battle of Bennington Program

Coming up on March 25th at 6pm, Historic Site Assistant David Pitlyk will deliver a presentation on the history of the Battle of Bennington. This is sure to be a popular event, so please contact the Library, (518) 235-2570, or stop in to let us know if you will be attending.

In the summer of 1777, an invading army under British General Burgoyne threatened to capture Albany and to cut off New England from the other rebellious colonies. Challenged by the logistics of continuing his advance, Burgoyne sent a detachment commanded by Lt. Col. Baum to capture stores held in Bennington. Expecting little in the way of resistance, Crown forces instead were delivered a decisive check by General Stark, who commanded a collection of Vermont, Massachusetts and New Hampshire state militias in two fierce engagements. Victory at Bennington paved the way for victory in the Battles of Saratoga and ultimately in the war itself.

Drawing from contemporary source material and archaeology, the presentation will also touch on how the battle has been commemorated and interpreted over time.
