From the Director – April 2023

This entry has been published on April 5, 2023 and may be out of date.

Dear Summit Free Public Library patrons and community members,

April is a special month for libraries – it is when we celebrate National Library Week! National Library Week is an opportunity to recognize libraries and all that they offer. This year, it takes place from April 23rd through April 29th, and the theme is “There’s more to the story.”

Libraries are full of stories in a variety of formats, from picture books to large print, from audiobooks to eBooks. But there’s so much more to the story. We work to connect and serve the community through programs, services, materials, and information. The end result? A truly wonderful community library with lots to offer – but a lot goes on behind the scenes to get there. Our staff and our librarians are the ones who create the magic and instill a lifelong love of literacy in all of us.

I invite you all to help us celebrate National Library Week by enjoying one of our programsaccessing our online resourceschecking out materialsconsidering a donation to the Library, or taking a moment to thank a member of staff.

When it comes to our Library, there is SO much more to the story. And it is our pleasure to work each day to fulfill our mission: to inform, enrich, and inspire everyone in our community.

As always, if there is anything that we at the Library can do to better meet your needs, please feel free to contact me at or (908) 277-9455.
