Today is the last day of classes for all grade levels of Upper Dublin School District students. I was in the children’s area earlier this morning and ran into a family who is in the library on a weekly basis. “Dennis!” I said. “Do you realize that you woke up this morning as a first grader and

This year’s Summer Quest theme is A Universe of Stories in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. Register this Monday to participate. Who hasn’t, at one time or another, wondered what it must be like to travel into outer space? For those budding astronauts, come to Astronaut Training on Saturday, July 20, 1-3 pm

Summer is Coming

Jenn, our children's librarian

Summer is Coming! Yes, it is fast approaching. I am hurriedly getting ready to visit all the elementary schools to talk about this year's Summer Quest (formally known as Summer Reading Club). Registration begins June 3rd and the Quest for fun and knowledge start on June 17th. Children from birth through high school can participate and earn awesome

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

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. He glanced at

Comments on Books

Jenn, our children's librarian

I was going to post all about the American Library Association book awards that were announced in January, but I’m not excited about them anymore. It was two months ago and I didn’t fall in love with the Newbery winner. I wanted to fall in love with the book, but sadly it was not to be. Maybe

I could fairly say that reading Middle Grade fiction because it's part of my job. There's a lot of discussion about exactly WHAT Middle Grade fiction is as well as WHO it's for, but for the sake of this conversation, let's simplify it describe fiction "chapter books" written generally for 8-12 year olds, with characters who are also

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
