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.
