Union Public Library

Books can also be borrowed from any library in the State. All inter-library loans (ILL) must go through a Librarian. Since it may take time to get books from other libraries, remember to look for them and order them as soon as you get your assignment. Please see Mrs. Jarossi or Mrs. Krauze if you would like to borrow a book through ILL.

Magazine Collection

We have new magazines available monthly. Magazine and journal articles are also available online.

Loans & Fines

Books and magazines go out for two-week periods, and can be renewed. Reference books can go out overnight and must be returned by beginning of first period the next day. The fine for each late book or magazine is five cents for school days, and twenty-five cents for late reference books per day.

**Seniors with outstanding fines will not be allowed to purchase a ticket for prom or receive a cap and gown for graduation until all fines have been paid.**

Computers

Computers are available for student use before first period and after school. During the school day, teachers need to call first, and students must have a pass and assignment to come to the library. 

Students must use their Student Computer ID and password to use the computers. Your username is made up of the first two digits of your student ID (usually your graduation year), the first initial of your first name, and your full last name (all lower case):
