Sign up for Smart 911 and Boston Library eCard

Looking to stay informed and access more digital library resources?  Here are two services you should sign up for today!

Smart 911 - Upton’s Emergency and Community Notification system to notify our citizens about public safety emergencies, extreme weather warnings and events that could impact your family’s life safety.

Your enrollment can be completely customized with your preferences for which notifications to receive, everything from emergency road closures, to trash pickup information, and format: phone, email or text.

If you've cut the cord on your landline phone, registering your cell phone number with Smart 911 can also save precious seconds if you needed to call 911, by providing automatic information to the dispatcher.

Boston Public Library eCard
The Boston Public Library will give any resident of Massachusetts an e-card, which provides instant access to their digital services.

Highlights include 'Hoopla' - a source of downloadable music, and 'Kanopy' - an archive of streaming video and movies.  Neither of these resources are available locally with just an Upton Library account, but we can all access them through the BPL.

Sign up for the ecard completely online, verify your residency, and you're ready to go!

Teen Book Club - April 2020

The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe by Allyson CondieApril Meeting: 4/15/20 at 3pm

The Teen Book Group The Teen Book Group meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 3pm. We read hot new titles and older classics, exclusively from our Young Adult collection. Copies of the current month's title will be available behind the circulation desk for both members and nonmembers. Open to Ages 14-18.

This month we will be reading The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe, by Allyson Condie.

Poe Blythe, the young captain of the Outpost's last mining ship, wants revenge far more than the gold they tear from the Serpentine River. She has vowed to annihilate the river raiders who robbed her of everything two years ago. But as she navigates the treacherous waters of the Serpentine and realizes there might be a traitor among her crew, she must also reckon with who she has become, who she wants to be, and the ways love can change and shape you.
