Library funding is a complex balance of public and private funding.
The Joseph T. Simpson Public Library is an independent non-profit organization 501 (c) 3.
There are 5 municipalities in the library’s direct service area:
Funding for the library comes primarily from county, state, and local private sources. Five municipalities support the Simpson Library each year. As a member of the Cumberland County Library System (CCLS), the Simpson Library shares resources, materials, and technology with seven other public libraries in the county, controlling costs and expanding access to resources.
Each year, hundreds of library users support the library with personal donations. The Friends of the Library host book sales and special events to raise funds for the library.
The Joseph T. Simpson Public Library offers its services and materials at no charge. Your support is greatly appreciated!
