Transform Your Life with a Library Card

The Union County Library System is encouraging Union County residents to sign up for a free library card for Library Card Sign Up Month in September. The value of today’s libraries goes beyond books. Librarians are leaders in their communities – helping people of any age to find what they need to help improve their quality of life. As new technologies evolve, libraries continue to lead the way in providing equity of access to digital tools and media, which has become increasingly important in high-poverty areas where people are less likely to have a computer or internet service at home.

Need a library card? Getting a card is easy! Fill out an application and come to the library with photo identification. Here are just a handful of resources you can use with your library card: check out, renew, place a hold on books, DVDs, audiobooks, music CDs and magazines, use public computers and make use of free internet, access in the library, read digital magazines with Flipster, stream free movies, TV shows, audiobooks and music with no holds or late fees using Hoopla and much more!

If you already have a library card, stop in and make sure your card has not expired. Library cards also have a six digit pin number which is the last six digits of your library card number by default. This pin number is used to sign up/login to online resources. If you need assistance with your pin number, call or visit the library.
