Get Involved with the Friends
Ways you can get involved and help support UDPL:
Become a Member of the Friends
Friends Members make a difference for library users every day. Members of the Friends are local residents and businesses who, like you, recognize all that the Upper Dublin Public Library has to offer our community, and who want to support it. Your valuable membership provides the support we need to help the UDPL continue improving your services.
To become a Friend, go here or complete the Friends Membership Form and return to the library.
Please Note: Starting in September 2020, the Friends of UDPL have chosen that any donation to the Friends 2021 Membership dues will be allocated to the funds being raised for the 520 Virginia Drive Capital Campaign. This will remain in effect for the 2021 Membership season.

Now accepting Book Donations!
The UDPL Book & Gift Shop is coming soon! Donate to the Forthcoming Book Sale Shop.
Guidelines for donations:
+ Drop-off in the library during regular business hours
+ Up to 3 bags at a time
+ Seeking bestsellers & recently published books for children, teens, and adults
Your donation supports the Friends of Upper Dublin Library. Thank you!
It’s a great way to participate with the Friends! Join us in helping with various activities and fundraisers including the Annual Jewelry Sale and other special events. Our ongoing Book Sale is on pause at this time.
When you use Amazon Smile, you can support the library.
Amazon Smile is the same Amazon you’re shopping already (products, prices, and services). The only difference is that a portion of your eligible purchases will be donated to the library.
The Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to the Friends of UDPL.
Visit https://smile.amazon.com/ and choose “The Friends of Upper Dublin Public Library.”
Donate to the Jewelry Sale
The Friends welcome donations of jewelry for our annual jewelry sale.
You can support us by shopping at our annual Jewelry Sale (Fall, usually October).
Whether you’re looking for a good book or a gift, we offer quality bestsellers, non-fiction, and children’s books at bargain prices at our ongoing book sale* (currently on hiatus due to the Library’s move to 520 Virginia Drive.)

Come to a meeting and hear more about who the Friends are and what we do.
Friends Meetings are 2nd Thursdays of the month, 1:00-2:30 pm, currently being held by Zoom meeting (see library calendar for meeting dates.)
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.
