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

While I was in the midst of writing this blog yesterday, I received exciting news to share. Governor Tom Wolf’s office announced that the new library project was among the recipients of a state grant in the amount of $1 million. This funding is awarded through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP). This news is all the more

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

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

The Board of Commissioners announced at their meeting Tuesday that they will officially vote next month (March 12, 2019) on whether or not to move the Library to the property at 520 Virginia Drive. Since then, there has been a resurgence of questions, comments and concerns from the Upper Dublin Community. It is my hope, as the

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow! How appropriate for this weekend’s Winterfest! 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

When UDPL’s first 3D Printer was delivered back in May of 2015, I was admittedly a novice. My greatest hope as I slid the Cube Printer out of its box was that I would be able to print pre-loaded files until I could figure out how do make my own. My literature background didn’t prepare me for

UDPL began hosting Public Library Interns starting in summer 2014.  Our interns have become a vital part of the library, team assisting us during the busiest library season of the year.  Interns learn all about working at a busy and bustling public library, while we learn about the latest trends in library services.  It’s been such a
