Due to the number of COVID-19 cases in our community, we are suspending most in-person programs until further notice. Many programs for adults and children are available online. Please see the events calendar for the most up-to-date information. We will continue to be open during our regular hours.
Decorate a cute 3-D foam gingerbread house on December 5! Everything you need for your gingerbread house is provided. If you'd rather pick up a kit and make it at home, register here.
Students in grades 4-5 are invited to come to the library to make new friends and to try new activities. This month Christmas Cupcake Wars is back! Please register online for this event.
It's a Holiday Story Time for the whole family! Santa will be reading a story to us from the North Pole on Zoom, and everyone will receive a Take and Make bag with fun crafts and games. The same program will be offered twice on Saturday, December 12.
If you'd like a Take and Make bag instead of attending in person, please sign up here.
Contactless holds pickup is still available at Simpson Library. Place items on hold online or over the phone, and after you're notified that your holds are available, head to Simpson Library! Give us a call at 717-766-0171 when you arrive, and we'll check out your items before bringing them out to your car or the porch. Please have your library card number handy when you arrive to pick up your holds.
Simpson Library is now a Virtual Partner with Community Aid! We no longer have a bin in our parking lot, but every time you take donations to Community Aid, tell them you want the proceeds to go to Simpson Library! We'll still earn money for your donations, and Community Aid saves money by not picking up donations from our location.
Read this month's issue of "BookPage" online! You can also pick up a print copy at the library.
School looks different for many students this year, but your public library is still here for you. Check out the many resources Simpson Library has to offer learners and educators to make this a successful school year in the midst of the challenges we're facing.
