Jenn, our children's librarian

I’m back! This election season we need to be teaching our children how the process works. We can watch coverage, we can discuss our thoughts as a family, but we also need to ensure that our children have the basic understanding of how government elections work. School Library Journal compiled a listing of resources for teachers and

One of the wonderful things about living in the Philadelphia region is that we have such convenient access to all the arts and cultural opportunities that a major metropolitan area offers.  Hop on SEPTA or shoot down 76 (I know, I’m painting too rosy of a picture by assuming that these are speedy transportation options) and you

Molly, our teen librarian

When I was still a classroom teacher, September was the most stressful month of my year. Since becoming a public librarian and only sometime classroom teacher, September is actually my first chance to catch my breath. It's also the month where I get to take vacation!

For those of us caught up in the whirlwind of a new school year, the beginning of September offers more “new” than the actual New Year itself. This is a time for new teachers, new clothes, new friends, new sports & clubs, new fun, new fears, new lessons, new schedules… So perhaps it’s not surprising that I chose

The Friends of UDPL logo

The 2016 Friends of Upper Dublin Library Art in the Park Crafts Show (third annual) held August 27th again proved to be very successful for the Friends (net proceeds over $3,100), the crafters, and the buying public. We had 78 crafters at the growing event (from NJ, PA, and DE), presenting an impressive array of quality products.

Because of the HBO series, True Blood, many people are aware of the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. However, many people are not aware that Charlaine Harris has written other series, including mysteries and a little known series that I am especially fond of, the Harper Connolly series. We first meet Harper Connolly  in Grave Sight (M
