You know you love your library.
We know you love your library.
Show everyone else that you love your library!
Everyone has stuff to carry around and needs something to carry that stuff in.
For your latest reading pleasure, try our just-back-in-stock tote bag. Durable, functional, and with a ZIPPER closure.
For really heavy duty toting, how about one of these drawstring backpacks? With outside mesh pockets for a water bottle and pockets that close with hook and loop tape for quick access, this sturdy bag can be carried or worn like a backpack. It holds a LOT!
Just a quick outing? Take your phone, your license and your library card in this cell phone case that you can wear or hook on a belt.

…it’s a fact. The new Municipal Library building has been included in the American Libraries Magazine 2012 Design Showcase. An example of “Small Projects, Big Impact”, the library is the only new building highlighted in this section of the article.
Here are some shots that didn’t make it into the magazine.

So, you got a NOOK or a Kindle Fire or an iPad for Christmas and now you’ve used up the gift cards that came with it. Ebooks are convenient but they sure can be expensive. Like always, the Library is here to help.
As a member of the Delaware County Library System, the Upper Darby Libraries can offer you access to thousands of titles for kids and adults of all types. Best of all, they’re FREE.
If you feel pretty confident about your ability to download, click here to go right to the “catalog” page and start looking for your next book.
If you want some help on getting started, don’t worry, there’s plenty of help right here. You’ll get a guided tour on how to check out titles, how long you can keep them, and more.
If you’re still not sure about getting into this whole ereader “thing”, try clicking here first. Choose the exact device you have (or are thinking about getting!) and watch a step by step video on how to use them. (Thanks to the Rachel Kohl Library for the production of these videos. Just remember, whenever it says, “Rachel Kohl Library” think “Upper Darby Libraries”!)
Don’t forget that you can download audio-books, too. Listen while you commute, or workout, or just work. You can transfer books to dozens of players or listen on your computer. Follow the same link to search for your next “good listen”.

Just a reminder that in the event of snow, the Upper Darby Libraries follow the UD School District’s lead. Listen for school number 452. If the schools close, the libraries will also close. If schools open 2 hours late, all three libraries will open at 11:00 a.m.
Of course, that only helps Monday through Friday. If the weather does turn bad over the weekend, please call before venturing out. There will be a message on all voicemail by 8:30 a.m. And we’ll get the word out on the library’s Facebook page too.
Now, can we all just hope for no accumulation?!
