Storytime On-The-Go!

New Children's Program: STORYTIME ON-THE-GO!

Sign-up and get a Storytime On-The-Go package!* This new program aims to bring the storytime experience into the homes of children and their caregivers. The packages include a library book, arts & crafts materials, props, and a sheet with songs and educational activities to do at home!

*Storytime On-The-Go will start on Wednesday, September 30, 2020. Packages are limited in number and will be given to those who sign-up on a first-come, first-served basis.
The first 50 packages will include a FREE book to keep! Once those are gone we'll include a surprise book from our collection checked out to your account (the crafts, props and other goodies are for you to keep!). Distribution will be at the main library and only one package per family. For more information please call 201-866-7500 or email

Contactless Holds Pickup

Contactless Holds Pickup:

How Does It Work?

  • Step 1: Put items on hold using your Union City Public Library Account or email us at or call us at 201-866-7500 (Main Library) or 201-866-7503 (Branch Library).
  • Step 2: Wait for an email or phone call that your items are ready to be picked up.
  • Step 3: Book a pickup appointment.
  • Step 4: Come to the library during your appointment window. Please bring your photo ID. All items will be checked out to you and bagged.

Please note:

  • You may only book a pick-up appointment AFTER receiving a pickup notice from the Library that your items are ready.
  • If you miss your appointment, please schedule another. Since we only have so many appointment slots per day, we may be unable to reschedule pickup for the same day.
  • For the safety of our staff and patrons, we will not be opening our doors for any reason. If you need help, please call us at 201-866-7500 (Main Library) or 201-866-7503 (Branch Library).
  • We are able to fulfill holds from only one branch of UCPL at the time until delivery between branches is resumed.
  • The Main Library pick-up location is New York Avenue entrance; the Branch Library pick-up location is Summit Avenue entrance.
