It’s tax time and the AARP is once again providing free tax services. They are here every Wednesday.
A sign-up sheet is posted on the Library door at 6 a.m. on Wednesday mornings. The AARP will begin seeing people on the list at 8 a.m.
You must bring last year’s tax information, and any other relevant information.
Please ask library staff for more details.

We almost always have a staff member on duty able to answer questions and help you find items! Come by the library during any of our operating hours, or call the Information Desk at 972-780-5052.
Displays and Reading Lists
Our monthly displays highlight all sorts of subjects and authors throughout the year! Come to the library to see this month’s display. There is a permanent display that honors our sister city in Italy, Monasterolo di Savigliano.
We also have a collection of reading lists. Some of these are based on themes, such as books to make you laugh. Others are lists of award winning titles.
TexShare Card Program
Duncanville participates in the TexShare card program. This allows Duncanville residents to go to other libraries for free after getting a TexShare card. Residents of other cities may acquire a TexShare card from their home library and bring it to Duncanville to obtain free limited borrowing privileges. For more information, click here.
This service allows Duncanville cardholders who live in the city to request items belonging to other libraries and have them mailed to the Duncanville Library for a $3.00 postage fee. Patrons may search for and request items here or speak to a library staff member.
Language Learning Tools
One tool we recommend is Duolingo. It offers free practice in a variety of languages. It is available online, as well as through a smartphone app.
We also recommend Pronunciator, which is available through our TexShare Databases. Sign in to TexShare and then create your own Pronunciator account.
We have three study rooms available for individuals or small groups on a first-come, first-served basis. Our programming room is also available when not in use by the library. Children and teens must be accompanied by an adult in order to use the study rooms. If you are looking for a venue for a party or a larger group, the Recreation Center offers meeting rooms for rent (scroll down to just below the hours.)
