Winter Reading 2018

From January 1st to January 31st, MacDonald Public Library will participate in Beanstack’s nationwide Winter Reading Challenge. During this challenge, our goal is for kids in our community to read as much as possible. Reading can be logged on a paper log (available at the library) as well as on our Beanstack site. Over 100 libraries across the nation will join us in encouraging their communities to read a  target number of minutes and books. If we reach our goal, "Shark Tank" investor Mark Cuban will donate $25,000 to the organization "First Book," which provides new books and learning materials to children in need.
Tax Information

Income Tax Information
At this time, the library expects to have paper forms available by mid-February. Once available, you’ll be able to pick them up in the library lobby.
The IRS and State of Michigan will begin processing individual income tax returns on Monday, January 29, 2018. The deadline to file and pay your taxes is Tuesday, April 17, 2018.

The library will receive copies of the basic federal forms from the IRS. These are available to you at no cost.  If the library does not have a particular form that you need you may print it from the IRS Web site. (Printing from library computers costs 20¢ per page.) You may also ask the IRS to mail them to you by going online to, or by calling 1-800-829-3676.  For information about getting ready to file your taxes click here.
