Need help filing your taxes?  Free help is available nearby-

  • The Community Action Agency is offering free tax prep from locations in Boothwyn and Media by appointment.  Call (610) 891-6327 or (610) 891-5101 to make your appointment
  • The AARP is offering free tax prep (not just for seniors) at the Granite Run Mall 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays on the upper level of Granite Run Mall near Boscov’s.  This program is first come, first served.

Unfortunately we are not able to offer tax prep at our library this year, as the organization that provides the service has had budget cuts and is unable to travel outside their offices.
