Simpson Memorial Library plays a vital role in our Community.
The Simpson Memorial Library serves as a multi-media educational center for the community of Carmel and surrounding towns.
It provides universal access to those who seek information, recreation and the pleasure of learning.
New technologies are integrated with traditional collections of books, periodicals and audio/visual materials as well as inter-library loans
About the Simpson Memorial Library
The Simpson Memorial Library is named for F. Marion Simpson, who donated the building over 80 years ago. The library was
incorporated on April 4, 1925. All cardholders are members of the corporation. It is a 501 c3 entity, so donations are tax-deductible.
A part-time librarian and volunteers provide services to the public. The current librarian is Becky Ames. She can be reached at bamesATsimpson.lib.me.us. (replace AT with @) or during library hours at 207-848-7145. The library enthusiastically welcomes volunteers.
Simpson Memorial Library is supervised by a nine member Board of Trustees. Eight members are elected by the members of the corporation and one town government representative serves as an ex-officio member. The Board of Trustees regularly meets the last Tuesday of each month at 7 pm. Meetings are open to the public. If you are interested in becoming a trustee, contact the librarian.
