From the Director -- December 2017

Are you looking for a holiday gift for the person who has everything? The Summit Library might have a solution for you. There are several ways you can honor your friends and family and benefit the residents of Summit.

  1. Purchase a chair for the adult department – For $225 you can purchase a beautiful new chair for the adult study tables or study rooms and have your loved one’s name printed on a brass plaque on the chair.
  1. Shop at Amazon.Smile and select the Summit Library Foundation as your favorite charity. Amazon will donate .5% of your order to the Library Foundation. It’s easy to get started at https://smile.amazon.com/ch/46-3873518.
  1. Give a Book Donation! When you make a book donation to the Library, you may choose to have a dedication made and a bookplate inserted in a library book. What better way to celebrate the holiday or show someone you care than to dedicate a book on a favorite topic to be placed in the library in their honor? A special acknowledgement card is sent to both the donor and the person or a family member of the person who is being honored. Fill out a book donation form at http://www.summitlibrary.org/images/gift_donation_form_2015.pdfor stop in at the library.
  1. Join the Friends of the Library! As a member of the Friends of the Library, you’ll be paid back in a thousand ways every year — with the satisfaction that you are helping to expand the library collection, funding the museum pass program and introducing programs such as lecture series, music programs and more. It’s easy to join at


And of course, stop by at the Pop-Up jewelry sale on Sunday, December 3rd from 1:00 – 4:00 PM to support the Friends’ efforts.

Thank you for supporting the Summit Free Public Library, The Summit Library Foundation and the Friends of the Summit Library. We are here for you throughout the year and look forward to doing so in 2018. Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and best of luck in the New Year!
