The Board of Commissioners announced at their meeting Tuesday that they will officially vote next month (March 12, 2019) on whether or not to move the Library to the property at 520 Virginia Drive. Since then, there has been a resurgence of questions, comments and concerns from the Upper Dublin Community. It is my hope, as the

This morning at Fabriholics Sewing Group, while I was trying to inset a piece of fabric in a new shirt I'd gotten that was far too low (seriously, where do they think anyone would wear that? Minoan re-enactment?), the topic came around to Marie Kondo. Kondo, the queen of the tidying method and author of The Life-Changing Magic

When I arrived at work this morning, the parking lot of the Upper Dublin Township building was being transformed into a magical winter wonderland.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a time when we recognize those who have been touched by this terrible disease, to acknowledge all that is being done to eradicate it, as well as the many ways and supports for those living with its effects. Even though October is behind us, I want to highlight this week how

I’m so glad you asked that question, Molly Kane (Head of Teen Services and Emerging Technologies) and I just got back from the Pennsylvania Library Association Annual Conference. It was four fun and educational filled days in Harrisburg. We arrived on Sunday and immediately went to lunch where we heard from James Robbins, an author, adventurer, and

I am eager to share with you two exciting developments regarding the new library at 520 Virginia Drive. First, the Board of Commissioners unanimously approved an architectural contract with GKO Architects (Ambler, PA) at their August 14 meeting. The contract enables us to fully develop the Library design and puts construction on track for 2019. Then, just last
