June Storytime

We had a lovely time at our June Storytime! Together we prepared for father’s day by reading a great rhyming story “The Night Before Father’s Day” by Natasha Wing. For our craft we made paperweights, which will make great gifts for our dads on Father’s Day, and for all of our loved ones! We got creative and turned some of our paperweights into magical looking “dinosaur eggs.” Join us on the first Saturday in July for our next project; can’t wait to see you!

Update on Interlibrary Loan Service

The Union Free Public Library is part of a statewide interlibrary loan system that allows our patrons to place holds on books from other libraries and have them delivered here, to their home library. The state library, which runs this service, has placed a hold on operations until April 4th. Please refrain from placing interlibrary holds until this date, or expect delays in the delivery process. You may continue to place holds on books that are owned by Union Free Public Library, as well as on electronic materials. We are also encouraging patrons to return books to the owning library if possible. If you have any questions, give us a call at 860-684-4913.
Thank you for your patience!
