Now more than ever, it is necessary to be informed and take action to change individual, institutional, and structural racism within the United States. Here is a list that contains topics regarding white privilege and U.S. history of racism, how to become an anti-racist, and memoirs by black people of their experiences with racism. By educating ourselves, we can learn how to change the racial issues within our communities and country.

Tax Deadline Approaches
A reminder that the IRS has granted an extension so that most federal taxpayers have until Wednesday, July 15, 2020 to file their 2019 federal income tax return and pay any taxes due.

This extension was included in a wide range of Coronavirus-related relief announced in early April. The extension generally applies to all taxpayers who have an income tax filing or payment deadline falling on or after April 1, 2020, and before July 15, 2020.

This means that anyone, including Americans who live and work abroad, nonresident aliens and foreign entities with a U.S. filing and payment requirement, have until July 15 to file their 2019 federal income tax return and pay any tax due. Visit for details.

Kirkwood Public Library has 1040 Instruction booklets and 1040 forms. We also have Missouri 1040, 1040A, and 1040ES forms. Need something else not listed? If available we will be more than happy to print it out for you, however, we cannot help you fill out forms or provide tax advice.
