From the Director -- May 2019

Have you ever come to the library, picked out a book, DVD or audiobook that looked really great but then when you arrived at home and started reading/watching, you realized you had read the book or seen the movie before? How annoying is that?  You can avoid this by signing up to keep your loan history in your online account. Just stop at or call the Circulation Desk at 908-273-0350, option 2, and the staff will help you opt-in to Loan History. Once Loan History is activated, you will be able to sign into your library account on the online catalog in the library, at home or on your mobile device and check to see if you’ve read/viewed the item before. This will be especially helpful if you are catching up on some of your favorite TV series and don’t remember what seasons you have completed. So sign up for Loan History before your next visit and be assured the Summit Free Public Library complies with the New Jersey Library Confidentiality Act and will not disclose your personal information, including your reading history, except as provided for in state statutes.
