Your Library Card — Don’t leave home without it!
And now you don’t have to with the Union County Library System’s new key chain library card!
Whether checking out materials at one of the three library locations or downloading eBooks and audiobooks through Overdrive, your library card will always be handy and easy to find.
Library users can upgrade to a new card free of charge by visiting the circulation desk and trading in their current library card. All account information will remain the same, including the information saved in the online ‘My Account’ feature.
Upgrading to a new library card will affect users of Overdrive. If you have items on hold or on a wish list, this information may be lost. However, titles currently downloaded should not be affected.
The new library cards, featuring a bright new design, will be available September 1. Each key chain library card comes with a standard size card as well.
Residents of Union County can obtain a free library card by visiting any UCLS location—the Public Library for Union County, 255 Reitz Blvd., Lewisburg; Herr Memorial Library, 500 Market Street, Mifflinburg; or West End Library, 45 Ball Park Road Laurelton.
Library cardholders may check out books, DVDs, music CDs, books on CD and magazines, as well as use the library’s public computers with Internet access. Cardholders may also use the ‘My Account’ feature 24/7 to place holds and renew materials, as well as access online databases.
A library is the place in the community that collects stories about things real and imagined. In the spirit of that role as the gatherer of tales, the Union County Library System is hosting a community writing project entitled, “Union County – My Memories: Stories in Celebration of the Union County Bicentennial.” The project coincides with the 200th anniversary of the establishment of Union County.
Residents of all ages are invited to submit a memoir of their own, using no more than 200 words, about Union County. Possible topics include growing up in Union County, a person of influence, local impact of a world event, focus on a special location, event or activity, reflections on a personal photo, or first impressions as a new resident to the county.
Workshops to assist writers on composing their entries will be conducted by Gale Duque. Gale has taught for 30 years in various locations from Finland to Penn State and Bucknell. Upon retiring from Bucknell as a Writing and Teaching Consultant, she taught several Memoir Writing Workshops for Bucknell’s Institute of Lifelong Learning program.
Workshops are held at The Public Library for Union County at 7 p.m. Thursdays, September 5—Getting Started, September 19—Revising, and October 3—Editing and at Mifflinburg Bank & Trust at 7 p.m. Wednesdays, September 4—Getting Started and September 18—Revising . The final session on editing is Wednesday, October 2 at Herr Memorial Library.
Completed memories can be submitted on the Union County Bicentennial website or on any of the UCLS library websites—Public Library for Union County, Herr Memorial Library, or West End Library—and must be received by October 15, 2013.
Typed entries may be submitted along with a completed registration form available at any of the UCLS libraries in Lewisburg, Mifflinburg or Laurelton.
The submissions and a photo of the author will be displayed at the Public Library for Union County in Lewisburg, Herr Memorial Library in Mifflinburg and West End Library in Laurelton during the month of November.
