The Friends of Upper Dublin Public Library

Friends of UDPL Gift and Book Shop now open during library hours. Gently used books, best sellers, cookbooks and holiday books. Pay as you wish.


Our Mission Statement: The Friends of Upper Dublin Public Library, a non-profit volunteer organization, stimulates public interest in our library & supplements funding to support the cultural, educational, and special needs of the library.

We provide funding for many library’s programs and needs: Summer Reading Programs, the Museum Pass Program, Continuing Adult Education Classes, Little Free Libraries, the monthly Book Page, and more.

Come to a meeting! We are always seeking new fundraising, promotional & programming ideas.
