Donate to Sims Library of Poetry

Our Patreon community helps us cover monthly costs associated with running the Sims Library. We are currently preparing the library to open to the public, and are also focused on building and supporting the poetry community in L.A. and beyond throughout the duration of COVID. We utilize Patreon funds to support acquisitions of new poetry collections, repairing damaged materials, adding murals and other welcoming touches to the library space, as well as many other similar projects.

Keep Sims Going!
