From the Director-July

Library service is looking more and more like pre-pandemic times every day. The number of people coming in and staying a while to use the Library’s PCs, the Wi-Fi, read the newspapers or study in a Quiet Study Room increases every day. Many children’s programs are now being held in-person on the Library lawn. It’s great to see the children sitting together under the tent, swinging their arms and participating in the stories and songs.
We have lots of programs and contests for all ages planned as part of the summer reading program. The Tails and Tales themed program will include lectures, stories and activities based on animals. Adults will have the opportunity to guess Summit locations that summer reading mascot Terrence the Tiger is visiting and kids and teens will enjoy visits by the SCREAM truck.
The Friends of the Library will offer four in-person jewelry sales (weather-permitting) under the tent on the lawn on July 10th & 24th and August 7th & 21st from 10:00 am – 12:00 noon. Be sure to stop by and support the FOL who have found creative ways to continue their mission throughout the last 15 months by selling their jewelry on Facebook and from the display cases in the Library. Many Library programs and services such as the Museum Pass service are made possible by the FOL.
Be sure to join us on the Village Green on Wednesday, August 11th at 7:00 pm for Shakespeare on the Green featuring the Hudson Shakespeare Company’s presentation of Twelfth Night.
Finally, with restrictions reduced, as you travel this summer take the Library with you with books, movies, audiobooks both electronic (https://www.summitlibrary.org/onlineservices/) and standard formats. Hope to see you at the Library. Happy trails.
