Yup. That's right. The UDPL made the Philadelphia Daily News on Tuesday (December 22) for the promotion of our upcoming visit from author Elizabeth LeBan and her new novel, The Restaurant Critic's Wife. (You may be more familiar with LeBan's husband, Inquirer restaurant critic Craig LeBan). This book will be hot off the presses in early January.

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

On behalf of The Friends of Upper Dublin Public Library, I would like to personally thank all of the very generous Library patrons and supporters who donated jewelry throughout the year for our recent 6th annual Vintage/Costume Jewelry Sale. We had over 4,000 pieces/sets available for purchase. The event raised $3,032.00, with 100% of the proceeds to

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

If you’ve happened to visit the Teen Space at UDPL in the last few days, you were probably shocked when you saw that the shelves behind the sofa were empty. I have to admit, it does look a little worrisome - empty shelves in a library are rarely a good thing. But in this case, it actually

For anyone who’s read my past posts, you know that I enjoy audiobooks. For someone like me managing a family of 5 with two full-time careers, I don’t have a lot of time to relax, let alone read. But I love books and thanks to the availability of so many free audiobooks (on CD or digital) in

A 4-year-old boy came into the library today. It was his birthday and he was wearing his new Batman shirt and cape and was looking for superhero books. It’s wonderful to find our heroes in books, whether they are the obvious ones like Batman or one of my heroes Dale Carnegie. Ever heard of him? No? How
