Summer Hours Begin Monday June 21
Main Library Summer Hours:
Vauxhall Branch Summer Hours:
Patrons may return items inside the library, or drop them in our outside book return boxes, which are open 24/7. We are no longer quarantining returned items.
We encourage the continued use of our Contactless Curbside pick up for our Union Public Library cardholders who do not wish to come inside the building. Pick up is by timed appointment.
To keep the public and staff safe, we will continue to follow these rules:
- All patrons MUST wear a mask, including children age 2 and up. Please use our curbside service if you cannot wear a mask.
- Proper social distance must be maintained.
- If you are sick, please stay home.
- All children under 10 must be accompanied by a responsible caregiver age 16 and over.
While Governor Murphy has lifted the indoor mask mandate for vaccinated people as of 5/28/21, he has allowed individual businesses or entities to make local decisions about safety precautions. Union Public Library will continue to require staff and community members to wear masks and observe 6ft of physical distance while inside the building. This decision is out of respect for our younger patrons who are unable to be vaccinated and are required to continue to follow these guidelines. Additionally, less than 50% of Union Township residents are fully vaccinated as of this time (https://covid19.nj.gov/), and we are not in a position to determine which of our patrons are vaccinated and which are not.
At this time programs will be a mix of virtual and in person outdoors (as weather permits) Please visit our calendar of events to register for our Adult, Teen and Youth programs.
