Coloring for Adults is here at Newtown Public Library! Drop in, pick up some colored pencils and color for your own well-being on coloring pages, all supplied by the library or bring your own. But why coloring?

Coloring actually has been shown to have many benefits for adults. According to WebJunction, many libraries believe that coloring supports health literacy, pointing to research that indicates that it de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, and can be especially beneficial to people with brain damage or dementia. Coloring also invites creativity and stretching imagination muscles from childhood that may have gone dormant while fulfilling the responsibilities of adulthood.

Coloring creates social connection, both as a way for the library to connect with the community, and for community members to connect with each other, overcoming isolation and loneliness. It’s also a chance for library staff to help patrons informally with books they might enjoy or information they may be seeking, or simply to introduce people to the other programs and services the library and the community at large offers.

And finally, coloring is just fun! Please join us and see how coloring to happiness helps you.

Swarthmore Public Library & Fair Districts PA present:

Gerrymandering: a panel discussion

Thursday, April 6, 2017 at 7:30pm

Fair Districts PA will feature:

Rep. Leanne Krueger-Braneky, PA State Rep.

Peter Mardinly, Fair Districts PA

Ben Geffern, Public Interest Law Center

Fair Districts PA is a coalition of citizens and organizations who believe that in American democracy, elections should represent the will of all the people, not just the politicians, and should provide citizens with meaningful choices in electing representatives.

When partisan politicians manipulate voting maps to keep themselves and their parties in power, they shape election outcomes before the first vote is cast. When that happens, voters feel they have no voice, and legislators feel less need to listen to constituents.

Fair Districts PA believes that Pennsylvania needs to reform its redistricting rules and make the process of drawing districts impartial, transparent and accountable - promoting competitive elections and partisan fairness so our government truly is of, by and for the people.

All programs are free and open to the public.  To register, please call 610-543-0436 or email swarthmore@delcolibraries.org.

The Ridley Township Public Library is offering a free Basic Meditation Workshop led by Rich Conti from the Schoolhouse Center Meditation Group. Participants are free to stay for the entire 2 hours, or may choose to leave after 1 hour or more. In this workshop,  you will learn all you need to practice meditation on your own, at home. 

 Meditation requires no extensive training, preparation or effort. It is simple, easy and anyone can do it. A simple commitment of a few minutes a day can make a real difference in a person’s life by helping to clear the mind and reduce stress. The best way to learn about meditation is for someone to show you what to do and how to do it.

This lecture, presented by art historian Fred Dixon, will describe how art history progresses as the art pendulum swung throughout the 19th century. It has been said, “The road to Impressionism goes straight through the forest of Fontainebleau.” That is where the Barbizon painters gathered and they are considered the Pre-Impressionists. But they differed from the Impressionists. Then came Manet who is a great example of how art history progresses. Two of his paintings represent turning points in art history. But he was not an Impressionist although the Impressionists rallied around him and he became like a spiritual leader to the group. Finally, there were the true Impressionists. Paintings by Morisot, Pissarro, Sisley, Renoir and Monet are now considered the height of serenity and beauty but that was not always the case. See their art and discover how the painting styles of Renoir and Monet changed during their careers. Hear how Impressionism got its name and why it was considered vulgar and ridiculous early on.

Fred Dixon will be available to sign his book “700 Years Of Art History: Pre-Renaissance To Modernism” that will be offered at the deep discounted price of $35.

Fred and his wife Martha began to collect art some 35 years ago. Their home in Chadds Ford has become a mini-museum with roughly 130 paintings and sculpture pieces by artists from 25 countries. They have traveled to major museums in the U.S. and Europe and to the great cathedrals in Italy to view Renaissance and Baroque art. There were two years of art history study at the Barnes Foundation followed by a docent training course. Fred and Martha were docents at the Barnes for ten years. All of this background culminated in the publication of Fred’s book “700 Years Of Art History: Pre-Renaissance To Modernism” in 2013.

Unnecessary Risks: an author talk

By Tim Plummer

Wednesday, April 26 at 7pm

It is 1993, two years since the Iron Curtain fell. Lieutenant Colonel Tim Plummer is headed to Russia. He isn’t going to Russia on a military mission, however. He is hoping to reunite with an old friend—the Soviet officer who saved his life in the Sinai Desert during the cease-fire that followed the 1973 Yom Kippur War.

Tim Plummer graduated from West Point in 1959. His subsequent twenty-year Army career included travel throughout the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War. He served as a cease-fire observer with Soviet officers during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. After the fall of the Soviet Union, Plummer returned to Moscow to reunite with the Soviet comrade who had saved his life.

Plummer lives in the Borough of Rose Valley, Pennsylvania, where he is a two-term mayor as well as founder and president of a non-profit conservancy dedicated to the betterment of his community. He is a daily lap swimmer and an avid fly fisherman.

June 7, 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Dean Martin. In his one-man show "That's Amore," Dave DeLuca imitates Martin's relaxed, warbling, crooning voice as he performs signature songs such as Memories Are Made of This, Everybody Loves Somebody, You're Nobody till Somebody Loves You, Sway, Volare, Ain't That a Kick in the Head, and That's Amore.

Martin was one of the most popular and enduring American entertainers of the mid-20th century. He was nicknamed the King of Cool for his seemingly effortless charisma and self-assuredness. He and Jerry Lewis were partners in the internationally acclaimed comedy team Martin and Lewis; and he was a member of Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack as well as a star in concert and in recordings, motion pictures, and television.

This exciting FREE program will be held in the accessible Adult Library. All seats are first come, first served. Arrive early for the best seats!

Radnor Historical Society is the cosponsor of this event. Nancy Lynch, author of Vietnam Mailbag, will read letters from servicemen who served in Vietnam from 1968-1972. From the early 1960’s through 1973, hundreds of thousands of men and women served in Vietnam in an undeclared and highly controversial war. During the peak years of that conflict, a young reporter, Nancy Lynch, relayed the hopes and fears, the joy and tears of hundreds of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines from the state of Delaware through the “Vietnam Mailbag” column she wrote in the Wilmington Morning News. Nancy kept all those letters, and the pictures sent with many of them, neatly folded in their original envelopes. Now, 40 years after she began writing her column, Nancy has written this book, giving a new generation a fresh look at the first-person accounts of troops in the combat zone. Books will be available for purchase. This event takes place at Radnor Fire Company, 121 S. Wayne Avenue, Wayne, PA 19087.  Please park in the municipal lot or teacher's lot and not at the firehouse.  Use side entrance to the firehouse.

    Contact: Mary Tobin   610-583-0593   reference@ridleylibrary.org
   

 

The Ridley Township Public Library is offering a free Basic Meditation Workshop led by Rich Conti from the Schoolhouse Center Meditation Group. Participants are free to stay for the entire 2 hours, or may choose to leave after 1 hour or more. In this workshop,  you will learn all you need to practice meditation on your own, at home. 

 Meditation requires no extensive training, preparation or effort. It is simple, easy and anyone can do it. A simple commitment of a few minutes a day can make a real difference in a person’s life by helping to clear the mind and reduce stress. The best way to learn about meditation is for someone to show you what to do and how to do it.

This is a health literacy program of the PA Forward Initiative.
