We enthusiastically welcome volunteers! Call the library or come in and see us to find out more.  



Amazon Smile


Donate to the library just by shopping at Amazon.


AmazonSmile lets customers enjoy the same selection of products,  prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers. So please consider the Simpson Memorial Library for your donation.


To access Amazon Smile simply use the URL smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com.  You can link directly to Amazon Smile here.The first time you use the site it will ask you to choose an organization that benefits, and then you just do your shopping as usual.



Along with gifts such as books and returnables, monetary donations are always welcome.


All donations are tax deductible. --  The library is a 501c3 entity.  Donations can be directed to the Capital Campaign Fund (Expansion), Endowment Fund, memorial funds, book purchases or where most needed.



In addition you can Help Maine Libraries by using the check-off on 

your Maine State Tax Return!



Books:  We welcome book donations! All donated books are used to benefit the library.Our annual book sale is held the second Friday and Saturday each May.


We also collect returnable cans and bottles and used ink catridges.


  • There is a receptacle in front of the library for returnable bottles and cans.  Thanks to everyone who has dropped off bottles.

  • We also collect printer ink cartridges to recycle and use the funds to buy supplies. Note: Please place them in a closed plastic bag, especially if you are placing them in the book drop.  

  • Bake sales are also held periodically - typically the second Saturday of the month from September to November and January to April.  Bakers are needed.  Call (848-7145) or email the library if you want to help. 

Thank you for supporting our fund raisers.
