The library now circulates video games for Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch! Union Public Library cardholders 18+ may checkout up to 2 video games at a time for a loan period of 14 days. If there are no other patrons waiting for the video game, a 14 day renewal can be requested. Please return video games on time, so they can be made available for the next patron. Late fees will be charged at $1/day. This collection was started thanks to the generous donation from the Friends of Union Public Library and the Union Township Education Association.
