Upcoming Program & Event Highlights
Please see our Library Link program guide for this season’s complete programming.
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.

50 High-Impact, Low-Care Garden Plants
Snow is still on the ground but gardening is blooming in my heart. The month of March finds seed catalogs, gardening books, and over wintered herbs strewn all over my kitchen and dining room. The need is for spring!
My favorite gardening books for Ohio are authored by Tracy Disabato-Aust. Every spring I start a plant list for my garden from Tracy’s book, 50 High-Impact Low Care Garden Plants. The book has a little bit of everything from grasses to shrubs, but all are Ohio hardy and easy care. My favorite stand out plants are Bear’s Breeches, Variegated Aralia, Blue False Indigo, Bleeding Heart, and Hellebore. The Dragon's Eye Pine made the list this year but where to plant, the garden is getting full!
