News and Announcements
The Main Library is in need of adult and teen volunteers to help us keep up with the demand for library materials. Assignments include shelving returned items, checking shelves to make sure items are in proper order, and locating and collecting materials that have been requested (think library scavenger hunt!). Whether you are looking for a long-term volunteer assignment or fulfilling your school service hour requirement, we'd love to hear from you. The hours are flexible! Information and applications are available at http://volunteer.ualibrary.org.
One of the many benefits of your Upper Arlington Public Library card is having the ability to access the full Consumer Reports website free of charge. Get all the ratings, reviews and buying guides of appliances, electronics and other products you expect from the magazine, plus more exclusive content.
Can’t decide between several different brands? Use the Compare tool to get more details about each one. When you know what you want, use the Shop link to find where the product is available online. Try the Repair Cost Estimator to make sure you are getting a fair price for work done on your car. Watch videos to see product testing in action. You can do all this and much more with the easy-to-use ConsumerReports.org.
ConsumerReports.org is one of the most popular resources the library subscribes to, so don’t miss out!

"Me before You: a novel" by Jojo Moyes
Me before You is the story of Louisa Clark, and Will Traynor. “Lou” is a small town British girl, living with her zany family, and a waitress in a small Tea Shoppe. She answers an ad in the paper for a companion to a young man, and is hired for her likability and cheerfulness. Will, who was once a very active man, had an accident and is now a quadriplegic. His depression and sorrow are understood, but his mother would like him to live life in a different way. What follows is a combining of heart and soul, as these two unlikely people share their lives careening toward an unbelievable ending.
