Union Public Library
The Union Public Library was founded in 1820 and is the second oldest library in Newport County. Originally called the Union Society, its subscription membership was open only to men, but within two years membership became available to women. In 1888, it became known as the Union Public Library and in 1896 it moved to the current location at 3823 Main Road in the Historic Tiverton Four Corners District. It became affiliated with the Essex Library in 1965.
Union Library is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10 AM until 1 PM. It is staffed by a Tiverton Library Services librarian and a Union Library volunteer. There are computers for public use and free access to wi-fi. There is also a small room dedicated to local history and stocked with historical reference materials.
The library facility is maintained by The Union Public Library Association and all needed repairs and maintenance is funded by the association’s annual book sale held in August. New association members are always welcome as are new volunteer library assistants.
