Library of Things

The Library of Things is a collection of non-traditional library items that complement the Summit Free Public Library’s mission to inform, enrich, and inspire. We hope the Library of Things will offer new experiences for you and your family to enjoy. Discover the night sky using one of our telescopes, observe local birds with our birdwatching kit, search for treasures using our metal detector, and much, much more! The Library of Things collection is made possible in part by the generosity of the Friends of the Library.

The complete list of the Library of Things can be found here.
