. Why did I receive an overdue notice?

MCLINC began issuing overdue notices again. Please disregard if the items belong to the Upper Dublin Library. During our move we have extended all due dates on items in our collection. All our overdue fines will be waived.

The Book Drop is now open from dawn to dusk at the new library at 520 Virginia Drive, Ft. Washington.

Please Follow these Guidelines:
  • Last Names starting with A-M return your books Monday, Wednesday or Friday.
  • Last Names starting with N-Z return your books Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday.
  • Book Drop Hours: Dawn to Dusk (there is currently no exterior lighting)
  • Please follow the directional map below
Please Note:
  • All returned items will remain on accounts for at least 72 hours as they are being quarantined before they are processed by staff. No fines will be incurred.
  • No need to rush as no fines will be incurred through August 31, 2020
  • Due to the move the UDPL is not yet a pick up location for your requests
  • This is still a construction site. Please be mindful of workers.

 We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience during our move.

1. What is the status of the library now that Montgomery County is in the green phase of the Governor’s Reopening plan?
2. From where can I borrow books while the UDPL is moving?

You may borrow books from other libraries! While the UDPL is not a pickup location due to our move, neighboring libraries are fulfilling our patrons requests for items. Requests placed prior to the library’s closing in March will be fulfilled by the Horsham Library. For any new requests placed now, residents may choose any MCLINC Library convenient to them.

 

3. Where do I pick up my book or other item request/hold?

The Upper Dublin Library is not currently filling requests as we prepare to relocate and move to our new home at 520 Virginia Drive.

Horsham Township Library will be the UDPL’s default pickup location for requests placed prior to the March 2020 building closure. Going forward, as you place new requests online, you may choose any convenient MCLINC library for your pickup location until the UDPL is able to resume this service. You will receive a notification from the library where your item is being held when it is ready to be picked up.

If you have any questions, please contact us during our Ask a Librarian hours (https://upperdublinlibrary.org/contact-us/) or email us at upperdublinlibrary@mclinc.org.
