COMMUNITY SERVICES

Meeting Rooms: Rooms are available for nonprofit groups holding meetings of a civic, cultural, or educational nature at the Mesquite Main Library (972-216-6223) and the Mesquite North Branch Library (972-681-0465). A fee is charged for use and reservations should be made at least 2 weeks in advance. Due to heavy demand for space, library meeting rooms are not booked on a standing basis.

Study Carrels: The Mesquite Main Library has study carrels available for use. Ask at the Reference Desk or call 972-216-6224 on the day needed for a two hour reservation.

Copy Machines: Coin-operated copy machines are available for public use. Price per copy is $0.15. The machines are self-service and intended to provide serviceable copies of reference materials, rather than sophisticated collating and enlarging functions generally found in copy businesses. Double-sided copies are available.

Computer Copies: Paper copies from work performed at the public access computers are available. Price per copy is $0.10.

Voter Registration: Applications are available at both libraries.

Tax Forms: Federal tax forms for individuals and small businesses are available at both libraries. During tax season commonly requested forms are available for distribution. Otherwise, forms may be photocopied from a master book. Master books of tax forms from previous years are kept for eight years. You can also download income tax forms and publications online through the IRS website.

During tax season, volunteers from the AARP are available to assist taxpayers in preparing their returns at the Mesquite Main Library. This is free tax help to anyone who needs it. They will conduct business on a first come first served basis.
