The Wall of Shame

One of the many perks and also major disadvantages of working at a library is that you get first crack at the book sale books. I have to admit I'm terrible at saying no to a pretty book. They wave their alluring covers at me and fan interesting blurbs in my direction and the next thing I

First off, Happy Star Wars Day. May the Fourth Be With You   Now that I got that out of the way, I want to share some super exciting things with you. If you haven’t visited Mondauk Common Park (you know that amazing park with the trail around it) recently, you need to!! We installed a Picture Book Walk

Wednesday, May 4th marks, in my mind at least, the unofficial one year birthday of the UDPL STEAM Lab.
