Summit Historical Minute

Carnegie1When Councilman Robert Rubino served as Common Council President he introduced a "Summit Historical Minute" at the beginning of each Council meeting to encourage awareness of our City's rich history. This feature highlights people and places in Summit, researched and presented by Summit High School students and residents. We will be posting these "minutes" here after every meeting, so stay tuned to learn interesting tidbits of Summit's history every month.


From the Director - February 2016

Lots of people make New Year’s resolutions to exercise, lose weight, read more, learn something new, get a new job or improve their business. By February many people start to slack off on their resolutions a bit, if not abandon them all together. The library can help you stick with all your resolutions.
