April Storytime

Thank you to all of our creative kids (and guardians) who came out on April 2nd to celebrate the arrival of spring with some painted and paper-crafted birds!
Our featured story was “Bugs!” by David T. Greenberg. This book was a little yucky but a lot of fun!
Come out on May 7th at 10 AM for our next Saturday Storytime, we would love to see you there. Snacks are provided, and we will cooking up another craft to appeal to a variety of ages.

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!

A Valentine’s Day Themed Storytime

Join us on Saturday February 6th at 10am to prepare for Valentine’s Day! We will be making Valentines and reading a Valentine’s Day story. There will be goodies available to munch on (please contact us ahead of time with concerns about food allergies).

February 6th is also the 5th annual Take Your Child to the Library Day, an international initiative. If you can’t make it to storytime, drop by with your child any time; we would love to see you.


First Storytime of 2016 is coming up!

Join us this Saturday January 2nd at 10 pm to hear a story read by the librarian! We will have a snack available as well as a small craft project to keep little hands busy. Feel free to call or email with questions or to make us aware of any food allergies.

See you there!

Email Updates

Our email updates system is now up and running. To sign up for email updates, navigate to the “News > Email Updates” portion of our website and follow the instructions there.


Every first Saturday at 10 am families are welcome to drop by the library to listen to a story being read aloud, have a light snack (or coffee for parents!) and make a fun craft. Typically we will open with the story and end with the craft, so that families may adjust how much time they spend participating. If you or a family member has a food allergy, call or email by the Wednesday prior so that we may make every effort to accommodate you.
See you there!
