The Summit Library is now sending out holds notifications, overdue and courtesy notices via e-mail. Sending holds notices via e-mail will provide a faster turn-around time for the items you are requesting as patrons won't have to wait several days for U.S. Mail delivery. Courtesy notices will remind you when your materials are coming due so that you can avoid overdue fines. Help us to move over to e-mail notification by providing your e-mail address the next time you stop in. Be sure to check your junk mail box and move the library to your accepted e-mail list so that library e-mails don't go to the spam box. Remember e-mail notices save paper, save time and save money. Sign up for e-mail notices today.

The Board of Trustees has approved the library's membership in MURAL. MURAL is a borrowing agreement between most of the libraries in Union and Middlesex Counties. This agreement will now allow Summit patrons to use a Summit library card to check out materials in these libraries. Residents of other Union and Middlesex towns will also be allowed to use the Summit Library. Summit residents will find this agreement to be most useful when in need of something quickly. Just jump in your car and head on over to one of the participating libraries. The list of libraries is posted on our website.

The Summit Library also has agreements with the Millburn, Chatham, Madison, Morristown, Bernardsville, Bernards Township and Long Hill Libraries. Your Summit library card is accepted at all of these libraries.

Mark your calendar for the next Sunday afternoon music concert on Sunday, February 23rd at 2:00 pm. The Radiance Chamber Ensemble will perform music by Juan Crisostimo Arriaga, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Scott Joplin. Join us for a delightful afternoon of music.

Remember that the library is "open" 24 hours a day from your computer. You can log into your account to renew library materials, check a title or place a hold. You can also sign onto one of the many databases that your library provides for free. Check it out at www.summitlibrary.org.
