In storytime yesterday, our theme was bedtime. Why bedtime? It’s a great theme for kid’s to hear about and it’s something we all encounter every day. As I was planning the stoytime with some of my bedtime favorites I came across some new books that would be perfect for storytime. They were all hits and I thought

One of my favorite library questions is “Can you help me find this book?” Sometimes it’s an easy question to answer – “Yes! That book is currently checked in and on our shelf!” Sometimes it takes a little bit longer to find it – “So, it’s a story about a girl who wants to become a knight

Happy Halloween!

Jenn, our children's librarian

I have always loved Halloween, who doesn’t love dressing up and getting candy? I’ve dressed up as a clown, Dopey (you know, the dwarf from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves), a pirate, a victim in a horror movie (I wasn’t allowed to answer the door for trick-or-treaters that year), a book fairy, and others.

Exactly two weeks ago, I wasn't sitting at my desk writing a website blog. Instead I was in a conference room at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center giving a presentation to close to 100 librarians, library directors, teachers, and other educators as a part of the Pennsylvania Libraries annual conference.

I thought selecting a topic for my first post was difficult, nope, it’s harder to choose for my second post.

The idea for this was sparked when one of my co-workers commented on the picture

September is Library Card Sign Up Month, and even if you already have a library card, I bet there’s something you don’t know about what we do. Have you checked out ebooks through Overdrive or full length digital magazines via the Zinio platform? Do you know that the library now has two 3-D printers and that we

Let's start out today's blog with some stats. According to Forbes, Lego is the world's largest toy maker, selling more toys than either Mattel and Hasbro. If all of the Lego bricks that have been produced since 1958 were shared evenly with the world's population, each human living on earth would get 86 bricks. Soren Eilers, a

I don’t generally frequent used book sales. After all, libraries provide more literary sustenance than my family could ever want. However, I broke this rule about two months ago when my 4-year-old, who has really taken to reading voraciously (the “1 books” as he calls them for the Level 1 readers you find on our Easy Readers

Today is my birthday! When I realized that my birthday also fell on a UDPL blog day, I knew that I wanted to tie the two things together, but I wasn’t exactly sure how. I considered writing about birthday themed books like Gary Goldschneider’s The Secret Language of Birthdays or Helen Oxenbury’s It’s My Birthday, but while
