As we say goodbye to the lazy days of summer, and look forward to the new fall season, we anticipate the changes to come--in the weather, in our activities, or even just in the pace of our lives. You may start noticing some new additions in the Library, too, as we prepare to move to the new

Summer Reflection

Jenn, our children's librarian

Hello all, it is Miss Jenn with your children's summer recap. The Universe of Stories theme for our Summer Quest program (formally Summer Reading Club) was a big hit. Programs were popular with Astronaut Training and Grace the Pirate topping the list. Next summer we will be exploring fairy tales and mythology with a theme of Imagine Your

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

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.

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
