April 5 is the last day to turn in your reading log. More information will be available on our website starting January 4.
Contactless Holds Pickup
Place items on hold online or over the phone, and after you're notified that your holds are ready for pick up, head to Simpson Library! Give us a call at 717-766-0171 when you arrive, and we'll check out your items before bringing them out to a cart in the vestibule. Please have your library card number handy when you arrive to pick up your holds.
Jack Scott will be sharing what is new and fielding new questions and tips. If you are not familiar with this group and want to check it out, email Joelene Diana at email@example.com for information and the Zoom ID. Registration is not required.
