History of Upper ArlingtonWe've recently made several exciting additions to our UA Archives collection! In case you're unfamiliar with the UA Archives, it’s the library's digital archives initiative. We partner with local organizations and individuals to accomplish two main goals:

  • To preserve original documents, photographs, and other items related to the history and culture of Upper Arlington.
  • To bring increased visibility and improved access to these materials by placing them online.

Thanks to the library's partnership with the UA Historical Society, we've just finished digitizing the entire History of Upper Arlington book, and it is now available online. This book has been appreciated and heavily used by students, teachers, and others in the UA community, and we're very excited to make it accessible.

City of Upper Arlington Facts and Photos, 1917-1976And thanks to the City of Upper Arlington, we've recently added The City of Upper Arlington: Facts and Photos, 1917-1976. This book was published by the Upper Arlington Bicentennial Committee and presents a picture of Upper Arlington's growth as detailed in the community newspapers.

As we approach the centennial of Upper Arlington's incorporation as a village, we'll be adding many more items of historical significance to our community. We hope you check out the UA Archives collection on a frequent basis!

Are You Ready for Tax Season?

A lot of you have been calling in asking about tax forms! Some of the federal forms have started to trickle in, but no instruction booklets, local or state forms have arrived yet. Keep in mind, anything the library receives will be set out as it arrives. You may want to check with us to make sure we have the forms you need before coming in.

It is still a few days until the IRS will accept paper filing. With the government shutdown happening last year, the IRS postponed the start of tax season until January 31.  But, unfortunately for procrastinators, this does not mean the tax deadline will be any later! It is set by statute to be April 15 every year.

While there is no benefit to paper filing before the start of tax season, some online tax filing software are accepting tax returns now, and holding them until January 31.

Take a look at our 2013 Taxes Hot Topic post for information about forms, filing online, getting tax filing help and much more!
