The Summit College Club Book Sale began in 1935 and has been held over 70 times. The Book Sale funds our scholarships, supports our educational goals, and in many senses defines our organization for the public. Largely because of its success, Summit College Club has awarded nearly a million dollars in scholarships.
The SCC Book Sale does nothing by halves!  A week long event, it offers for sale more than fifty thousand books helpfully arranged in dozens of categories. It draws readers and book dealers from the entire New York metropolitan area and across New Jersey. Virtually all SCC members help out in one way or another over the course of the year: they plan and publicize, set up and break down the hall, accept, sort, arrange, and restock the donated books, and see that any leftovers find their way to other uses.  
Two celebrations follow the sale: a party for all those who volunteered their time and effort, and a Scholarship Reception, at which SCC awards the scholarships and honors the achievement of the winners and their proud parents.

Summit College Club anticipates holding a book sale in 2021, though scope, location and dates are all undecided at this time. We will solicit guidance from our city and county health experts to determine whether an indoor event is safe, how to manage any occupancy limits, or how to manage both donations and shopping using a primarily outdoor approach. We’ll have more information in the spring.

Once our plan is set, we’ll post information here and on our Facebook page on when and how to donate, volunteer and (best of all) shop. 

Until then, happy reading!
