Today is the last day of classes for all grade levels of Upper Dublin School District students. I was in the children’s area earlier this morning and ran into a family who is in the library on a weekly basis.
“Dennis!” I said. “Do you realize that you woke up this morning as a first grader and now you’re a second grader?”
He solemnly nodded his head and went back to his book.
Later I was having a conversation with a teen volunteer who is getting ready to start his THIRD straight summer of working at UDPL, and realized that as a rising senior, he’ll only be hanging out in the library for another twelve months before he leaves for college.
And when I went to George’s for lunch (because Friday is Sidewinder Fries day and who doesn’t love that?!) there were bunches of gleeful elementary students picking up celebratory snacks and water ice because it is OFFICIALLY Summer Vacation!
And when Monday, 6/17/19 finally comes, it will bring with it the beginning of UDPL’s Summer Quest!
This will be my seventh summer at UDPL, but there have been many more before it. Cheri and I were looking at our digital photo archive yesterday and marveling that how much has changed but still how much has stayed the same. For example…
Who knows what kind of memories we’ll make this year? I just hope that if you’re reading this, you stop by so that you can be part of them! Here’s to a fantastic summer from your friendly, neighborhood library staff at UDPL!
