Progress reports are a standard for Library Directors. Through these reports, we share with our residents how we’re responding to our community and the achievements we’ve made. These documents also assist the library staff and administration in thinking about where we need to be headed. I share with you today the latest of the UDPL’s two main reports. The

STEAM Lab Wishlist

Molly Kane, Head of Teen Services and Emerging Technologies

The STEAM Lab has been up and running for over a year now and I think it's safe to say that we've done some exciting and innovative things! And since the STEAM Lab isn't a static event, but rather an evolving series of programs, we're constantly planning the next thing. Next school year will bring sewing classes

Today is the day you can start signing-up for the Summer Reading Club, we have been preparing all year (I started in December of last year, to be perfectly honest). We have a club for kids, one for teens, and even one for adults. This year the kid’s club added Book BINGO, a great way for kids

For about the last 10 months or so, it’s been my pleasure to chair the committee that planned and delivered the first ever One Book, One Montgomery County featuring Daniel James Brown’s bestseller The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. I can’t deny that The Boys

We are very excited to have the Hampstead Stage Company visiting us next week to present: Alice in Wonderland. This will be a real play with real actors, just not on a stage. I am a huge proponent of introducing children to the arts. It gives them an appreciation of literature, talent and hard work. We are

I love checklists. I just can’t help the feeling of success and completion that I get from the simple act of checking an item on a list. To Do Lists, Grocery Lists, whatever. I remember discussing this feeling long ago with a colleague who felt the same. I can still see her definitively checking off an item

If you happened to visit the STEAM Lab or the Teen Space last week, you probably noticed that our 3D printers have DOUBLED since the last time you were there. Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of Upper Dublin Public Library, we now have four printers up and running. The new printers are MakerBot Replicator Minis,

Upon a recent visit to the Pennsylvania State Library in Harrisburg, I was reminded once again of our state's rich history. It was my second tour of the Rare Books room, which has an amazing collection. If you have a chance to get a tour, I highly recommend it. But even if you can’t, you can still
