Will you support us this year in our quest to provide a multitude of new materials to the more than 750 people who visit our library every day?
Books remain in great demand and we have increased our Simpson Signature Selections campaign goal this year to $12,000. This campaign enables us to purchase new books media for children, teens, and adults on a wide variety of topics.
Listed below are items we want to add to our collection this year. Your financial support enables us to purchase materials for patrons of all ages to meet their educational and recreational needs.
Please help us expand our collection with a tax-deductible donation to the Simpson Signature Selections fundraising campaign.
What sparks your interest? What will you fund for us through your tax-deductible contribution? What materials would you enjoy having available for your reading pleasure?
A wide variety of topics are available for your consideration. A bookplate is placed in each item recognizing the name of the donor. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate support of your library. Gifts can also be made in honor of or in memory of a friend or family member.
Thank you for your support as we continue providing library services to our community of avid readers.
