News and Announcements
The Friends of the UAPL Summer Book Sale runs through August 30 at the Upper Arlington Main Library, 2800 Tremont Road.
You’ll find a large selection of hardback and paperback books for all ages plus DVDs, VHS tapes, CDs, records and more. Most items are priced between 25¢ and $2. Shop early for the best selection! Our bag sale will return on the last day of the sale — Saturday, August 30. Members can buy a brown grocery bag of books for just $5. Nonmembers can purchase a bag for $10, or they can join the Friends and have access to this deal at all quarterly sales.
Please note that this year the sale will end BEFORE Labor Day. Also note that the parking lot, along with the front entrance and walkways, will be closed from August 25 until approximately September 22. However, the library and the Friends sale will be open. Please find alternate parking across the street or on a nearby side street, and use our alternate entrance located by the drive through book drop.
Capital Punishment. Fracking. Gun Control. Gay Marriage. Climate Change. These are just a few examples of the social issues in the news all the time. Wouldn’t it be helpful to have a way to learn about these topics and explore all different perspectives in one reliable place?
Gale Opposing Viewpoints in Context is perfect not only for students working on current event projects, but anyone who wants to educate themselves on all sides of an issue. It’s one of the best all-around resources available through UAPL, and a favorite among librarians.
Each major topic includes an overview, pro/con essays, court cases, magazine and newspaper articles, podcasts and more. Browse through all of the explored issues, or search for something you came across in the news recently.
