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. 

Our next regular general membership meeting will be Tuesday, May 15th in the library's downstairs meeting room. Come hear what's new and share your ideas as we work to provide support for our wonderful library! Funds raised by the Friends have recently purchased assistive listening devices, new wood chairs for the main reading room, the very popular museum passes, adult computer instruction, prizes for the adult and children's summer reading programs, and much more.

There are so many ways for library lovers to get involved with the Friends, whether it's planning speaker programs, arranging for advertising of upcoming events, taking minutes at meetings, helping with jewelry sales, managing the membership database... Whatever your talents or interests, we can use your help! Contact any board member for more information.

Thank you to all who shopped our Pre-Valentine's Day Pop-up Jewelry Sale February 4th at the Library! It was a huge success, and we appreciate the support. Thanks also to our volunteers for all their hard work setting up for the sale and assisting our customers.

Missed the sale? Save the date of our next one, a Giant Jewelry Sale April 28-29, just in time for Mother's Day. We'll have more than 5 times the merchandise as our Pop-up Sale, and all priced to sell!

Do you have jewelry to donate? We gratefully accept donations year-round -- just drop it off at the Circulation Desk at the Summit Library. (See below for details on what we take.)

We accept all types of jewelry-- women's and men's; vintage, modern, estate or costume! 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!

p.s. - come join the fun helping out at our sales-- no special invitation necessary! You can help with the pre-sale prep, as we sort, tag and price new donations, or with set-up and selling 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!
