Proud of our Past ~ Building our Future
The Campaign for Simpson Memorial Library

Proud of Our Past ~ Building Our Future is a
capital campaign that supports the construction
of a new addition and renovations to the existing
library building located on Plymouth Road in
Carmel.  The addition will increase the size of the
library from 800 square feet to 1,800 square feet.  
The renovations will transform the existing
library into a spacious reading room housing the
adult collection and featuring an area with tables
and comfortable seating. The new addition to the
library will be a focal point of the community; a
contemporary, energy efficient, inviting, and
accessible space for programs and meetings,
serving patrons of all ages.  Donors have
contributed a total of $454,722 to fund the
construction and campaign costs.  By exceeding
the campaign goal of $406,940, the library
trustees will establish an endowment fund to
support the library for future generations.

If you would like to help with this capital
campaign please contact Evie Smith at 207
356-1811 or contact the Library at 207 848-7145.
