The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) is designed to assist eligible taxpayers who have low income and simple tax situations. The Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Library is an official clinic site for Income Tax Preparation Assistance. If you are unable to prepare your income tax and benefit return yourself, the CVITP may be able to help. To see if you, or someone you know qualifies, please visit our CVITP page for complete details. If you qualify, you must book an appointment to meet with one of our volunteers in order to have your taxes completed.

This winter we honour the art of photography with displays and exhibits throughout the building. Our main floor showcase displays the camera-related collection of Peter Wilson, BWGPL’s eResources Librarian. Cameras, books and camera accessories spanning the golden age of print photography are featured.
Peter’s passion for the history of photography is reflected in his collection.
On display is a range of antique and vintage cameras notable for their design features. “These were the technological marvels of their day,” explains Peter. His favourite item on display is the Kodak Folding Autographic Brownie, manufactured between 1915 and 1926. Look closely at this camera to see the variety of settings available.
For those who may be feeling nostalgic about film-based photography from viewing Peter’s display, we have just recently added Robert Burley’s The Disappearance of Darkness: Photography at the End of the Analog Era. This is the companion publication to Burley’s exhibition of the same name, currently on display at the Ryerson Image Centre until April 13th, 2014.
Peter’s photographs, along with those of James Haddon, are on exhibit on both floors of the library. Learn more about our two featured artists through their biographies. Watch for more displays and events as our celebration of photography continues.
