Dear Patrons and Friends, The final book has been moved to the new Library-- To the Edges of the Earth by Edward J. Larson! I’m told by our amazing movers from Overton Associates that relocating the UDPL’s 115,000 titles required about 1,300 crates. We thank them and we thank all of you for holding onto your books a

What’s all the hoopla About?

I don’t know if you are like me and overwhelmed with the whole “cutting the cord” thing. I looked into it. And by looked into it I mean I  consolidated months of online and anecdotal research about streaming platforms and wireless antennas into an honors-like thesis which I proudly presented to my better half.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a time when we recognize those who have been touched by this terrible disease, to acknowledge all that is being done to eradicate it, as well as the many ways and supports for those living with its effects. Even though October is behind us, I want to highlight this week how

A treatise on the ridiculous unattainable perfection that is Instagram I’m a little late to the Instagram but have now discovered the enchanted world of Domestic Bloggers - in particular British ones. I follow them religiously checking every morning to see what different angle of their light filtered kitchen they have posted or what steaming loaf of stone

I grew up in Florida with a sea full of sharks & dolphin. Yards full of snakes, spiders and alligators. I’ve lived in the tropics with giant millipedes longer than your arm and lizards as large as lawn chairs. But I have never seen the elusive American hummingbird. I've planted everything they love – bee balm, crocosmia, red hot

Who doesn’t love summer? Vacations, beaches, watermelon, long nights and languid mornings. For me summer is all about books: new hardbacks, sandy paperbacks, ebooks and audiobooks in all shapes and sizes.
