As you may or may not know, UDPL checks out museum passes for free! Each pass is a family pass, letting in 2 adults and between 3-6 kids. It's one of our most popular programs and Upper Dublin residents can book our passes up to 3 months in advance. However, the question we get a lot of

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
