Who We Are
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.
The Friends of UDPL make a visible difference in the community.
Did you know the Friends bridge the gap between Upper Dublin Library’s needs and state and local funding? In 2022 the Friends provided over $40,000.
We provide funding for many library’s programs and needs: Summer Reading Programs, the Museum Pass Program, Adult Discovery and Learning classes and lectures, author events, Little Free Libraries, the monthly Book Page, and more.
Come to a meeting! Friends members and non-members alike are invited to the next meeting of The Friends of UDPL. All are welcome — come and find out more about the Friends and opportunities to volunteer.
We are always seeking new fundraising, promotional & programming ideas.
Friends meetings are the 2nd Thursday of the month, 1:00-2:30 pm in the Library unless otherwise specified. See possible time changes below.
