Simpson Library Annual Appeal

Hand putting money into jar.Support the Simpson Public Library through our Annual Fund Drive. Our financial appeal to library card holders is an annual one and our goal is to raise $25,000 through this appeal. Will you help us reach our goal?


For over 50 years, the Joseph T. Simpson Public Library has provided an array of services to the Mechanicsburg community. Today those services include storytimes, entertaining and educational events for all ages, homework assistance, Internet and wi-fi access, and books, DVDs, and CDs.


Consider how valuable the Library is to you by taking a moment to reflect on what we bring to your community – recreation and enrichment, new ideas, knowledge, and opportunities for learning. We need your financial support in order to continue providing these valuable services to our community of readers.


Please support us by printing the Annual Appeal letter (PDF, 1.2MB, 1 page), filling it out, and mailing it to the Library.  Or you can make an online donation and select Annual Appeal under Fund Choice.


United Way Donations

If your employer participates in the annual United Way of the Capital Region campaign, you can designate the Joseph T. Simpson Public Library as the recipient of your United Way contributions. Even though Simpson Library is not member agency of the United Way, donations can be directed to us through their campaign. Simply list our United Way agency number on your United Way pledge form – 83514.


Your tax-deductible contribution to our annual fund drive in any amount is greatly needed and very much appreciated.
