Support the Library


Volunteers play a significant role at the Union Library by providing valuable assistance to library staff and customers. Our goal is to place volunteers in areas that will provide a meaningful experience for you, while contributing to the library’s service in the most effective way possible.

Whether you are looking for an ongoing volunteer opportunity or are just interested in helping out with a special event, we value your interest in serving our community through library service.

If you believe your skills and interests could be of help to the library, please contact 215-672-1420.

We are grateful to the community for their generous book donations.

Book Sales

The Myron G. Thomas Bookshop houses gently used books that are sold daily at our library. The bookshop is open during regular library hours, except when the space is rented for a private occasion. All proceeds directly benefit the library.

Our outdoor book sales are two of our biggest fundraisers each year. They are family fun-filled events held on library grounds. Thousands of gently used books are available.
