Library Mobile AppIntroducing our new mobile app for Cumberland County Library users! Manage your account, search our catalog, place holds, and more from your smart phone. You can even ditch the library card since the app will save your barcode for you! No need to log into a web browser, just open the app and go. Find it in the Apple App Store and in Google Play.

Read Across America DayCelebrate reading with some of your favorite children's book characters on Saturday, March 6! You can make your own puppets for Curious George, Pigeon, and Clifford. Then, explore Pete the Cat's books with story stones. There are games, too! Play ball in the bucket just like Elephant and Piggy, try out nine pins with Squirrel Nutkin, and pin the tail on Eeyore.

Friends T-shirt back

In order to meet a fundraising goal of over $40,000 for the library, the Friends of Simpson Library are selling t-shirts! Show your support for the Friends while helping the library! The shirts are available at the main desk of Simpson Public Library. You can also order and pay for one online to pick up at the library or even buy one at the Book Sales in February, May, August, and October (while supplies last).

Beautify the barriersNear the exit of our parking lot is a line of plain concrete "jersey" barriers. They do their job marking the property line, but they aren't pretty! We are seeking applications (PDF, 443KB, 4 pages) from local artists to transform the barriers into artwork this spring! The artwork should tie into 2021's Summer Learning Program theme, "Tails and Tales," and it will be displayed for about a year. Click here for more details.

Community AidSimpson 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! Be sure to mention our partner number, 10351. 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.
