A special display of books at the Summit Free Public Library commemorates former Summit resident Joshua Plaut--son of Jon and Anne Plaut of Summit--who passed away in November.  His father, Jon Plaut, is a longtime member of the Library’s Board of Trustees.  Donations to the Library in Joshua’s memory have been used to purchase books on a variety of topics that interested him, including dogs, whales, baseball, and current affairs.

Library Director Glenn Devitt said, “I ’d like to acknowledge the kindness of those who made donations for books in memory of Joshua Plaut.  All of these gifts typify the tradition of generosity and support that has helped the Library carry on, in good times and bad, for more than one hundred years, and enabled us to keep serving the Summit community.”

The books will remain on special display through mid-June, at which time they will be shelved with the Library’s new book collection.  All of them are circulating books, and can be borrowed for two weeks.

The Summit Free Public Library is located at 75 Maple Street.  The telephone number is (908) 273-0350.   Visit the library’s website at www.summitlibrary.org.
