     The Wilmington Memorial Library is sponsoring Food for Fines to benefit the Wilmington Food Pantry from February 2 to March 16. Patrons may have their library fines cleared by bringing a nonperishable food donation to the library. In the spirit of the program, we ask that the estimated value of the donation be close to the amount of the fine. For a list of items needed by the Food Pantry, you can check the Community Fund website.  We are also joining other libraries across the state during this time period in sponsoring a PJ Drive in partnership with the Boston Bruins and Cradles to Crayons. Patrons who bring in a new pair of PJs (infants to school age) can have their fines cleared. Those who do not have fines are encouraged to donate to these two worthy programs.

    The IRS has notified the library that it will be sending less print copies of federal tax forms than in the past due to budget cuts. The IRS is advising tax filers to use the web to download and print their tax forms and instructions.  The library has recieved a shipment of Massachusett resident and nonresident tax forms that are available across from the main ciruclation desk on the first floor.
