Simla SRA Club


Whether you are a gardener wishing to grow more or save seed...

You're one of Us!

We surveyed users a few months ago, and they told us that they wanted faster Internet in Elizabeth. We increased our bandwidth at our busiest branch ASAP. We have Wi-Fi free to visitors and parking lot dwellers alike. http://pplibraries.org/libraries-and-hours/

Parting is usually such sweet sorrow, but good riddance to daily fines. Think of this as a big V-Day hug from your library. We want you to come in, go steady with our services, and find all the ways to love your local branch without worrying about petty penalties. We hope to make fines go away permanently, and we need your help. If you felt embarrassed or overwhelmed by a dysfunctional relationship with fines, we're so sorry! Come back to us. Daily fines are gone at least until July, and maybe forever. The library wants to make its relationship with you into a perfect union.
