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

I could fairly say that reading Middle Grade fiction because it's part of my job. There's a lot of discussion about exactly WHAT Middle Grade fiction is as well as WHO it's for, but for the sake of this conversation, let's simplify it describe fiction "chapter books" written generally for 8-12 year olds, with characters who are also

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.

Tuesday January 15, 2019, began like any other Tuesday.  At 8:10 my wife, Mary, as she always does, reminded me not to forget anything I would need for my morning shift at the library.  And boy do I need those reminders a lot!  So with my hearing aids on and my bottle of water in hand, I

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

My husband, Michael, and I spent Thanksgiving and the subsequent weekend in New York City (Manhattan to be precise). We arrived on Wednesday by train, the coolest way to travel, and checked in to our Wall Street area hotel. Bright and early Thanksgiving morning we were up to get on the subway to go see the famous Macy’s

It is, I’ve been informed, illegal to lock a bunch of high school students in a room and force them to use their critical thinking skills to get out. And, if not illegal, it’s definitely not best practice. But Escape Rooms continue to be incredibly popular so there must be a way to use them in school

I'll admit it, as a former Mainer, it takes a lot of effort to force myself to go into downtown Philly. However, several weeks ago having white knuckled myself into the train (yes, I'm a wimp), I was walking in Old City. I had just had a thoroughly lovely lunch at FARMICiA (a salad of crab, julienne

I’m so glad you asked that question, Molly Kane (Head of Teen Services and Emerging Technologies) and I just got back from the Pennsylvania Library Association Annual Conference. It was four fun and educational filled days in Harrisburg. We arrived on Sunday and immediately went to lunch where we heard from James Robbins, an author, adventurer, and
