One October 1, library director Cheri Fiory and our children's librarian, Jenn Roberts, received one of the BEST kinds of emails - one that informed them that UDPL had been selected as a recipient of an Office of Commonwealth Libraries grant! This science grant provides a HUGE collection of materials for us to use in our STEAM

Rooting around in the bowels of the internet for a blog topic, I came across a list of monthly observances for November. Yay, a blog topic! So,  November is.... ...NaNoWriMo-or national novel writing month. The worthy goal of this is to start on 11/1 and writing throughout the month, finish an entire novel in November. Doesn't matter if

As a working adult with a house, husband, dog, and job to take care of, I sometimes find it really difficult to make time in my day to read. I'm not sure that's the kind of confession a librarian is supposed to make to their community, but for me, it's been the truth. It bothered me that

As we say goodbye to the lazy days of summer, and look forward to the new fall season, we anticipate the changes to come--in the weather, in our activities, or even just in the pace of our lives. You may start noticing some new additions in the Library, too, as we prepare to move to the new

It's time to turn in your reading/activity

As you may or may not know, UDPL checks out museum passes for free! Each pass is a family pass, letting in 2 adults and between 3-6 kids. It's one of our most popular programs and Upper Dublin residents can book our passes up to 3 months in advance. However, the question we get a lot of

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

It is always my pleasure to get to talk about UDPL’s teen volunteers. One of the most gratifying parts of my job is having the opportunity to work closely with students in grades 6-12 who selflessly give back to the community by donating their time to library projects. In 2018, students in grades 6-12 gave more than

One of the perks of being a librarian is that you can get access to Netgalley. What is Netgalley? Remember how publishers sometimes give out galleys for reviewers to read-those books that have Not for Sale and Not Final Product plastered all over them? Netgalley is the new digital form. And, as I've often said, digital clutter
