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

Every day I am asked if the library is moving and when. We are currently scheduled to move in mid to late spring, but that is subject to change. There are many moving parts and weather to consider. Here is an update about what is happening in the children’s department to get ready. Currently the Head of

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

Like most people, I am not lucky enough to live right next to work. Far from it, I generally take 25 minutes to get to work and 25 minutes to get back home. That's 50 minutes a day, 4 hours 10 minutes a week. 16 hours 40 minutes a month. Around 197 hours a year. 2561 hours

Summer is here! Our Summer Quest program is in full swing with 700 kids reading and questing (thank to the Friends of Upper Dublin Public Library for their sponsorship). Check out their LEGO build and our UDPL Night Sky the next time you come to the library. Summer is hot and I am not a fan.
