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

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

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

When I arrived at work this morning, the parking lot of the Upper Dublin Township building was being transformed into a magical winter wonderland. Complete with giant, colorful bulbs like the ones from my childhood Christmas tree along with what promises to

When Upper Dublin High School (UDHS) senior Jacob McCauley wanted to share his love of 3D printing with kids, he wasn’t shy about asking. Jacob has more experience with 3D printers than probably most high school students. He helped set up the ones in the high school media center and was even permitted to use one at

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

Summer is winding down at the library and children are turning their Summer Quest logs in (please turn yours in, I have lots of prizes to still give). Over 800 children registered for the kid's summer reading program. They took walks in our local parks, had dance parties, wrote thank you letters, did kind deeds, and read

There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories. –Ursula K. Le Guin Isn’t it interesting how the very thing you need simply falls into your lap at just the right time? This happened to me recently. I was skimming through the August 2018 BookPage
