Free Practice Driving Tests

Through a partnership with Driving-Tests.org, Loutit District Library is happy to offer free online practice driving tests for those preparing to get their Michigan driving permit or for those that just want to brush up on Michigan driving laws. 



Important information regarding tax forms 

Due to changes in the Tax Forms Outlet Program and a significant budget cut to the IRS in the 2015 budget, the only Federal forms that are available in the Library are the 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ along with reproducible forms. There will be no instructions and no other forms provided.  To get other forms, access the irs.gov website, either at home or in our Public Computing Department.  As a public service, we will not charge for the first 20 pages printed; after the first 20 pages, the usual charge of .15/page will apply.
