Do all the modern gadgets overwhelm you? Would you like to know how to download eBooks or audiobooks to a device, set up a Facebook account, move pictures from your phone to your laptop or purchase airline tickets online? Library Tech Volunteer Josue Duartes is available for one-on-one technical help on Tuesdays from 2:00-4:00 pm through April 7th. Don’t keep on struggling. Get answers to your questions and assistance with technical issues.

Muhammed Ali said that “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth.” Have you thought about volunteering your time but don’t know where to start? The Summit Library’s Third Annual Volunteer Fair will be held on Saturday, March 28th from 1:00 – 4:00 pm. Meet with representatives of 25 non-profit organizations from in and around Summit and find the right volunteering position for you. Adults and teenagers are welcome to come and check out the possibilities.

March is observed as Women’s History Month and 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote in this country. The Summit Library will observe these with a lecture entitled “Three New Jersey Suffragists” on Tuesday, March 31st at 7:00 pm and with two pop-up exhibits; “Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote” from the National Archives Museum will be displayed from March 14th to March 25th and “Marketing the Movement: How Women Won the Vote” from the Alice Paul Institute will be displayed from March 27th to April 8th.

Join us in March for these and many other events.
