Ship Models on Display

Our current display in the Rogers Room is the work of William A. Smith, of Fairhaven who was a carpenter for 55 years. He has been making ship models for about 10 years. To date he has completed a dozen boats. The ships on display are JESSICA which was completed in 1999 and took a number of months to finish; JEAN MARIE constructed in 2013 and took an entire year to complete and a tug boat which was created in 2014.

Tax Forms — We do NOT have Federal forms yet

The IRS has notified us that the Federal Income Tax forms will be late (no idea when they will arrive). This year they will not be sending instructions, so people will have to read them online. They are also only sending forms 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ. They are not sending any schedules or any other forms. You can find all of the forms and instructions at their website. IRS.gov/Forms – to view and download. Go to IRS.gov/orderforms – to order tax products to be delivered by U.S. mail or you can call 1-800-829-3676 – to order tax products to be delivered by U.S. mail.

We have a limited number of Massachusetts Form 1.

Don’t Forget Our Online Magazine Databases
If you are looking up information in magazines, check out the Databases and Passes tab above. You can access many of these even if you don’t live in Fairhaven, and we also do have some that are for Fairhaven cardholders only (you need your library card number), like the very popular Consumer Reports Magazine. They are not cheap, so we want them to be used!!!

Slocum at Smithsonian

There is a post about “Joshua Slocum and the Smithsonian” at the Smithsonian Collections Blogspot for September 24, 2014. They used images from the Millicent Library’s copy of a souvenir booklet that includes a piece of the Spray’s sail. The Smithsonian does not own a copy of this booklet.To see the whole booklet, follow the link on our Joshua Slocum Page.
