One of the perks of being a librarian is that you can get access to Netgalley. What is Netgalley? Remember how publishers sometimes give out galleys for reviewers to read-those books that have Not for Sale and Not Final Product plastered all over them? Netgalley is the new digital form. And, as I've often said, digital clutter

What’s all the hoopla About?

I don’t know if you are like me and overwhelmed with the whole “cutting the cord” thing. I looked into it. And by looked into it I mean I  consolidated months of online and anecdotal research about streaming platforms and wireless antennas into an honors-like thesis which I proudly presented to my better half. He glanced at

I was going to post all about the American Library Association book awards that were announced in January, but I’m not excited about them anymore. It was two months ago and I didn’t fall in love with the Newbery winner. I wanted to fall in love with the book, but sadly it was not to be. Maybe

I could fairly say that reading Middle Grade fiction because it's part of my job.

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
