My friend Betsy and I had a class in 7th grade called "Advanced Reading & Writing." I don't remember exactly what qualified it as "advanced," but I do remember that it was the first time in my life that reading wasn't enjoyable. I think a lot of students reach a similar place in early middle school where

This month we had a special program that brought back quite a few memories. The program was a Toddler Drive-In, the kids decorated boxes, sat in them, and watched three short movies (it was a triple feature). It was an adorable program. As I think about the program I am reminded of some childhood memories of visiting

I was afraid of the Yip-Yip aliens and had a special affection for the short animated movies about counting that took place in a

I loved Molly’s last post that discussed giving books as gifts. They are always a wonderful gift and I wouldn’t mind having 100 books wrapped and waiting for me at home. How do you know what kind of book to buy someone? An age old question, okay maybe not that old, but it has been asked for

Books As Gifts

In my former life, back when I was a teacher, I took a year long position filling in for friend who was on an extended maternity leave after having twins. I took over her 12th grade English and elective journalism classes and did my best to fill her very skilled and competent shoes.  I must have done a

The books you donate to the UDPL make a world of difference. In some cases, they go into the library's collections, in others they are sold at our ongoing book sale, which generates profits to support Library programming. And sometimes we donate them to other communities in need. Here's a case where Upper Dublin's donated books made
