Library supporters—businesses, organizations, and individuals—are encouraged to sponsor library programs, collections, resources, or individual books, materials, or magazine subscriptions. These are projects that are not currently included in the operating budget—therefore they truly are enhancements. Names of sponsors will be prominently featured with the supported projects so that library customers are aware of your support.

The Public Library for Union County produces a Catalog of Enhancements with a list of desired improvements to help sponsors select projects.
