Union Library
Annual Book, Bake, and Yard Sale
Union Public Library
The Union Public Library annual sale is an important community event that everyone enjoys. Each year, it draws book lovers from near and far and raises funds in support of our historic library at Tiverton Four Corners. The Library is celebrating its 200th Anniversary this year and is very proud to have been “Uniting Readers Since 1820!”

Unfortunately, due to health considerations associated with the pandemic and the continuing need to exercise great care to control the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the UPLA Board and Directors have decided we should not hold the August event this year. The safety and well-being of our many friends, supporters, and volunteers is paramount. We look forward to our sale in August 2021 and better times for all!
