Growing up, I knew summer was almost over when I started to see "Back to School" displays at Boscov's. As an adult, I know summer is almost over when UDPL's annual Summer Quest (formally Summer Reading Club) comes to a close. Well, friends, today is the last day of Summer Quest 2019. It's time to turn in your reading/activity

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.

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

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

This week, libraries of all types throughout the United States are celebrating the 61st National Library Week (NLW), sponsored by American Library Association (ALA). In 1958, the inaugural celebration featured the timeless theme, “Libraries Lead”. We embrace this year’s celebration, “Libraries=Strong Communities”, which recognizes the “contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians” and vigorously promotes library use and

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

What’s all the hoopla About?

I don’t know if you are like me and overwhelmed with the whole “cutting the cord” thing. I looked into it. And by looked into it I mean I  consolidated months of online and anecdotal research about streaming platforms and wireless antennas into an honors-like thesis which I proudly presented to my better half.
