On behalf of the Union Public Library Association, we would like to thank the greater Tiverton Community for their support of our annual book sale, yard sale and bake sale fundraiser held on August 17th and 18th. It was a great success! Thank you to everyone who came out to shop for bargains, those who donated items for the sale, the volunteers who put in countless hours sorting and transporting books and yard sale items and those that helped with set up, event tasks and clean up.
All of the proceeds from the event will go towards maintaining Union Public Library’s building and grounds. We are especially grateful for everyone’s support, since our aging building was in need of some TLC this year, and with the community’s help, this sale contributed greatly to the cost of those repairs. Union Public Library, located at 3832 Main Road in Tiverton, is the 2nd oldest library in Newport County and will be celebrating its 200th anniversary in 2020. It is through the generosity of our supporters, that we have been able to keep the structure in good repair and accessible to library patrons for generations.
The library is open on Tuesdays from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Saturdays from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM. We encourage you to stop by and visit this local treasure. We welcome new members and new volunteers to help out with various tasks to maintain the building and grounds and to assist the librarian during the regular hours of operation. Those who are interested may visit the library or call 401-625-6799 for more information.
