Friends of the Simla Library

Simla Friends of the Library

Join the Simla Friends!
Be a friend to your library…the rewards are great!  When you get a bunch of Friends together, it’s called a party!  We like to think that’s what happens when we come together to discuss ways to enhance your community library.  The Friends of the Simla Branch Library meets quarterly and/or per the needs of the group.

We have multiple levels of membership that have comparable rewards.  Basic membership is FREE.

We raise money for our local library through donations, used book sales, and our silent auction.  Your financial contributions, donations of used books, and volunteer efforts will help make a good library great!

Email our Simla Manager Kathy Wilkinson at to become a Friend.
