If you are a patron of the Municpal Branch, you know that it is bursting at the seams. What you may not know is that a building is planned for the branch on the site of the former Temple Beth Israel Synagogue. We were so excited this morning to see that the actual demolition looks to be done – just a pile of debris remains. True, much more needs to be done to the property before any new construction is started, but what a sign of progress!

This weekend is a busy one at the Sellers/Main Library. Saturday is the 2nd Annual Truck Day, from 10 a.m. to noon. Come and see some big trucks and community helpers up close and personal. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. the Friends of the Upper Darby Libraries hold their Spring Book Sale in the barn. A lot of work has been done to the inside of the barn – come and take a look.
And finally, on Sunday, from 1:30 to 5 p.m., our new Job Center will be available. Four computers with Internet access and Microsoft Office (Work, Excel, Publisher) will be available specifically for use by job seekers. The computers are on the second floor, are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and the usual two hour time limit will be suspended. Resource books and a staff member will also be available for assistance. Sign up in the Adult Library Reference Desk first.
Come and see us this weekend!

Welcome to the UDblog, the newest addition to our online library!
We hope that you’ll find this a quick and easy way to catch up on what’s going on at the Library. We’ll try to make quick posts regularly: to let you know about new books, programs, services, anything that strikes our fancy or that we think will strike yours. Feel free to leave comments, too.
