New Hours of Service Take Effect

August, 2014

On June 23rd, the Upland City Council voted to approve a contract with Library Systems & Services, LLC (LSSI) to operate the Upland Public Library commencing August 1st. The Library is closed for operational changes from Sunday, July 27th, to Thursday, July 31st. The approved LSSI contract increases the hours of operation by 24%, enabling the Library to serve the public 7 days per week; more than doubles the current book and materials budget; continues vital literacy programming; reduces overall costs of operations, thus saving taxpayers more than $1 million over the 5-year contract; and provides more professional growth opportunities for the existing staff.

Bring your Library Card during System Downtime

August, 2014

Maintenance will be conducted on the Libraryís computer system, hosted by the Inland Library Network and powered by Polaris Library Systems, Monday, August 11th, through Thursday, August 14th. Library staff cannot look up or replace library cards or accept payments for overdue fines, lost bills, or hold/rental fees. Staff can renew the loan period only if patrons bring the books to the Checkout Desk. Also, if library patrons check their online accounts during the maintenance window, the online information may not be up to date. However, as long as you have your valid library card in hand, you can check out books and use the free public computers. Library staff can also register new library patrons. We apologize for any inconvenience to patrons, and we appreciate patience and understanding during this time.

Book-Enders: Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

October, 2014

"Last night I dreamt I went To Manderley again."

So the second Mrs. Maxim de Winter remembered the chilling events that led her down the turning drive past the beeches, white and naked, to the isolated gray stone manse on the windswept Cornish coast. With a husband she barely knew, the young bride arrived at this immense estate, only to be inexorably drawn into the life of the first Mrs. de Winter, the beautiful Rebecca, dead but never forgotten... her suite of rooms never touched, her clothes ready to be worn, her servant ó the sinister Mrs. Danvers ó still loyal. And as an eerie presentiment of evil tightened around her heart, the second Mrs. de Winter began her search for the real fate of Rebecca... for the secrets of Manderley.

Book-Enders: I, Robot by Issac Asimov

November, 2014

World War II had just ended and the world was obsessed with air combat and the role of technology in society. Asimovís stories reflected the concerns over the danger of technology but they also humanized robots, indicating that it is not technology that is evil but the way it is sometimes abused. His stories were so successful that in 1950 nine of his best short stories were selected for publication as the book I, Robot.
