True confessions time. Yes, I have sewed for 27 years....but most of it was not using patterns. I have made the occasional garment from a pattern but, mostly, I've sewn historical garments-which are made for you specifically and thus don't really use a pattern-or I've altered pre-made garments. However last year in August, I took the advice of

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

The Quest is On!

Jenn, our children's librarian

Summer is here and so is summer reading, but we have changed things quite a bit this year. We no longer have a summer reading club, we now have Summer Quest!

This past Saturday, April 28, the Library participated in a celebration of all things Upper Dublin as part of #UDBetterTogether organized by Upper Dublin School District and the Excellence and Equity Committee and in partnership with Upper Dublin organizations.

Yesterday UDPL held our annual volunteer luncheon. This event allows UDPL to acknowledge and honor all of the hard work of our volunteer force. In 2017, volunteers gave 4281 hours of their skills, talents, and time to the library. Without their hard work, UDPL would not be able to provide the services, programs, and events that make

One of the best (or worst) things about teaching classes is you occasionally find yourself teaching things you never thought you would do.
