Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Union County Public Library are a support group that raises money for library programs.  In addition, it presents three author events each year:  its annual meeting in January featuring one or more local authors, a spring tea in April and an author dinner in the Fall.  Tickets for the tea and the author dinner go fast, so be watching for announcements about those events. 

You may join the Friends group for the low membership fee of $20.  You are also welcome to become a working member of the Friends Board, to assist with the annual events.  For information about the Friends activities, or upcoming meetings, call 704-283-8184 ext.241 or send an email to friends@union.lib.nc.us.
