Friends of the  Summit

Free Public Library



The Friends of the Summit Free Public Library is a vibrant, diversified, grass-roots organization of local residents who take an active approach to supporting and enhancing the role of the library in our community. Join us today and help to fund new programs, new purchases, and new community outreach projects that benefit all residents of Summit and the surrounding communities! We are a 501(c)(3) organization, and your membership and donation dollars are fully deductible to the extent allowed by law. 


  • We're trying something different: a DAYTIME general membership meeting! Come hear what's new and add your ideas for ways the Friends can support the library, 11:00 a.m. Monday February 11th. Bring your lunch and stay for the Monday Afternoon Movie, starting at 12:30!

  • Our big semi-annual 2-day jewelry sale November 3rd and 4th, as well as our Sunday afternoon pop-up sale December 9th, were our most successful events yet! Our heartfelt gratitude to all our shoppers, to the volunteers who worked so hard setting up, assisting customers, and packing up afterward, and last but not least, to everyone who donated jewelry. We couldn't do this without your generous contributions!

  • Missed these recent sales? Save the dates of the next one, April 27 and 28-- just in time for Mother's Day and all your summer gift-giving occasions!

  • We'd love to have you help out at our sales-- no special invitation necessary! You can join in with pre-sale prep as we sort, tag and price new donations or with set-up, selling and dismantling at the sale. Wherever you see yourself, we'd love to have you! Just become a member of the Friends and use the Contact Us page to let us know you'd like to participate!

  • Do you have jewelry you never wear cluttering your jewelry box or dresser drawers or even worse, stowed away in a box you never even take off the shelf? This is the perfect time to unclutter your home and your life! We gratefully accept donations year-round -- just drop them off at the Circulation Desk at the Summit Library. (See below for details on what we take. Hint: it's just about everything!)
We accept all types of jewelry-- women's and men's, fine estate pieces or costume, modern or vintage! Bring us necklaces, bracelets, earrings, watches (working AND non-working), tie clips, tie tacks, even broken pieces and single earrings-- we'll take it all!
