Starting this spring the Children’s Room at the Summit Free Public Library will undergo a transformation. The room will be more colorful and child-friendly, brighter, safer and will even include a Makerspace, a do-it-yourself space where kids can create, invent and learn.  Starting on March 21st thru April 3rd, children’s room patrons are encouraged to check out up to 70 books for an extra-long 42 day loan period. There will be a small browsing collection available in the library’s Hickok Meeting Room but the bulk of the children’s collection will be in storage off-site. Story time and other programs will be held in the lower level meeting room for the duration of the project which is expected to last about 6 – 8 weeks.

Patrons are reminded that you can use your Summit Library card at the Millburn Library, in libraries in Union and Middlesex Counties that participate in the MURAL Reciprocal Borrowing program and also at libraries that participate in the MUF program. For more information about libraries that honor the Summit Library card, check the Summit Library website at http://www.summitlibrary.org/about-the-library/reciprocal-libraries. In addition eBooks and eAudio books are available through the library website at http://www.summitlibrary.org/resources/ebooks-eaudiobooks.  

The Summit Library Foundation is raising funds to assist in this wonderful project.  You can help! The Foundation invites the entire community to participate in this vital endeavor and hopes you will join in making a contribution. Your contribution will ensure that our library can continue to enrich and support our community. Gifts of any size are important and appreciated. You may donate by mailing a check made out to the Summit Free Public Library Foundation to 75 Maple Street, Summit, NJ 07901, by dropping off a check at the library or online using a credit/debit card at www.summitlibrary.org/about-the-library/support-the-library/summit-library-foundation.
