Preschool Story Hour resumes Wednesday, Sept. 18, at 10:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. at the library and usually will run every Wednesday the same times until mid-May 2020 when public school is in session and the library is open.

Each Story Hour features circle time, reading, preK readiness skills, games, crafts and other activities.

Children must be accompanied by an adult caregiver. The last Wednesday of each month is block play, which this month is Wednesday, Sept. 25. Register at the library or call 724-4876.

Story Time supports the Basic Literacy and Civic and Social Literacy components of the PA Forward-Pennsylvania Libraries initiative.

The Green Free Library, 134 Main St., Wellsboro, is open Mondays to Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Fridays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The library recently ordered 2019 federal tax forms for next year’s tax season.

Along with that comes a reminder that the IRS has launched a new IRS Tax Withholding Estimator at

As part of a continuing effort to improve quality services for taxpayers, the IRS upgraded this tool, which replaces the Withholding Calculator, and gave it a facelift.

The Tax Withholding Estimator offers taxpayers a more user-friendly, step-by-step tool for tailoring the amount of income tax they have withheld from wages and pension payments. More people with certain tax situations can use this tool than before, such as retirees and self-employed individuals. The newly designed, mobile-friendly tool has plain language throughout to improve comprehension, and several new functions.

The IRS urges taxpayers to check their withholding each year and adjust it, if needed, to avoid tax filing surprises. The new Tax Withholding Estimator will help anyone doing tax planning for the last few months of 2019. It’s especially important to use the estimator:

• If a taxpayer faced an unexpected tax bill or a penalty when they filed this year.

• If a taxpayer made withholding adjustments in 2018.

• If a taxpayer has or will experience a change in marital status, dependents, income or jobs this year.

• Because taxpayers can make estimated tax payments to the IRS instead of adjusting their withholding, and the next payment deadline is Sept. 16.
