Join us in April for our Fun Fridays series! We have lots of fun activities planned for your children this month.
We are switching the second Lego Friday event to the last Friday of the month so that we can have a special Easter event with an egg hunt, crafts and even a visit from the Easter Bunny!! Don’t forgot to bring your cameras.
Many of these activities are possible thanks to the support of the Friends of the Cielo Vista Library with volunteers who work hard to bring us extra funding for supplies and treats.
El Paso Public Library now offers a free and fun way to learn a new language with a service called Mango Languages.
All you need to start using Mango is your library card number and access PIN. Sign up for a course with the language of your choice (over 47 are available!) and go at your own pace.
There is also a mobile version for learning on-the-go! Just download the app for your smartphone.
Come see a FREE movie every Saturday at 3:00 pm
Every Saturday, we show movies here at the library starting at 3:00 pm. It’s open to all ages! Free refreshments are provided (popcorn and sodas) while supplies last.
You can give us a call at (915) 594-7680 to get the movie title for the week.
We never show R-rated films at the library, but you can check IMDb for information related to the movie rating and parental advisory for this movie.
Pick up your tax forms at the library!
We have many of the in-demand tax forms!
Tax season is here!
We have a stock of most the tax forms you will need to file your federal income taxes. Just stop by the library to pick these up (while supplies last).
*Update: now that it is closer to the April 15th deadline, there is limited availability of both forms and booklets, but we can help you get what you need as far as forms are concerned…booklets are very costly to print out and use a lot of paper, but we can also try to find specific information you need like the tax table and print this out for you at a 10 cent charge per page, including forms.
If you prefer digital formats, you can view and even download both all tax forms and publications (instructions) through the IRS website.
There is also FREE tax assistance available to senior citizen and individuals making less than $52,000 a year. For a list of sites, click on this link for AARP assistance (for senior citizens) or for help with the VITA program (for qualifying individuals and families). The lists include phone numbers.
The El Paso IRS Branch Office has ALL tax forms available in print. It is located at 700 E. San Antonio St. (79901), and it is open Monday – Friday from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm (915-834-6508).
