Borrowing Materials

Your borrowing privileges give you access to the Union Public Library's large collection of books, tutorials, periodicals, foreign language books, DVD's, Blu-ray discs, audiobooks, music CD's and even toys and puppets in our Children's Collection! You could visit both of our libraries for years and still discover many items to check out. Browsing our shelves is half the fun!
