Substance abuse is never easy to talk about, but it continues to be a serious problem throughout Ohio, including Upper Arlington. Open dialog about the problem —who it affects, what causes it, and how to confront it — is an important step toward understanding and prevention. Join Leadership UA on Thursday, April 23 at 7 p.m. in the UA Main Library's Friends Theater for a moderated panel of community leaders that will:
- Detail the urgency of substance abuse in Upper Arlington
- Explain how local resources are being organized to address the problem
- Offer ideas for proper storage and disposal of prescription drugs, a leading gateway to illicit drugs addiction
- Allow parents and others a chance to ask questions and share input.
Our distinguished panelists include Police Chief Brian Quinn, UA High School Principal Andrew Theado, Drug Free Action Alliance Executive Director Marcie Seidel, former UA Mayor David Varda, and UA Assistant City Attorney Thad Boggs. Dr. Brad Mitchell will moderate the discussion.
What does privacy mean to you? Is it something you value? Or, in the digital world, is privacy a thing of the past? Maybe it’s something you never really considered before.
Privacy is something that everyone should think about, especially now when more people are conducting business and sharing personal details online. You can learn more about this issue by consulting the Privacy page on Gale’s Opposing Viewpoints in Context, one of UAPL’s subscription databases.
Opposing Viewpoints brings balance and perspective to controversial issues by presenting information and pointed arguments from subject experts and top journalistic sources. Explore the concept of privacy by reading encyclopedia, magazine, and journal articles, listening to podcasts, watching videos, plus much more.
May 1-7 is officially recognized as Choose Privacy Week by libraries in America. UAPL is offering three programs where patrons can learn how to protect their computer, mobile device, and, more importantly, themselves from privacy intrusions.

Unsinkable: A Memoir by Debbie Reynolds
A youngster during movies ‘Golden Age’, Reynolds writes a wonderfully funny & heartfelt memoir of her trials, tribulations and friendships. She shares her children, Carrie and Todd Fisher, personal problems, as they struggle with their own successes as well as their famous parents. Her disastrous marriages brought her to bankruptcy, but she never despaired- and that’s the heart of this story, how her spirit, talent and personality kept her from sinking.
