Become a Member of the Society of Samuel Simpson

In 1894 Samuel Simpson, a local silver industrialist and philanthropist, gave $20,000 to the Wallingford Public Library, along with land and funds for a building.

The Society of Samuel Simpson honors Simpson’s legacy by recognizing those friends who have provided for the Wallingford Public Library in their estate plans. These testamentary gifts may include bequests, trusts, life insurance and retirement plans. If you would like to become a member of this society, please contact Jane Fisher, Library Director.
