UNION, NJ - The Union Public Library has announced that patrons will now be able to borrow DVDs for free, thanks to a new policy in response to patron requests.

"We listen to our patrons," said John Daquino, Head of Adult Services, "and their interests come first.  We have such a great collection of movies, TV shows, concerts and more and we want to be sure that all of our patrons have access to them."

The Library's DVD collection includes more than 10,000 selections including award-winners, big studio productions and independent filmmakers produced both nationally and internationally.  There is a DVC limit of five per card, and late penalties will still apply.

The Union Free Public Library has been a municipal library since a referendum in 1936 and has served a diverse population of over 50,000 residents at two locations:  the main library, 1980 Morris Avenue, and the Vauxhall Branch Library, 123 Hilton Avenue.  For more information about library programs and resources, visit www.uplnj.org or call 908-851-5450.
