    Contact: Reference Desk   412-372-0500 X 4   
   

Hello, Baby Boomers! Don't let anyone call you a senior citizen! You're still a baby and part of a very special generation with 76,000,000 other boomers who were born between 1946 and 1964. Do you remember sitting in front of your black and white TV, staring at the test pattern and waiting for the Howdy Doody Show or Mickey Mouse Club to come on? Did you rush home from school and change into your play clothes so you could go outside and ride your bike, play ball, or practice your hula hoop? Then you probably grew up in the '50s! Did you play your 45s over and over on your record player? Was Dick Clark's American Bandstand the place you learned the latest dances? Do you remember where you were when you learned that President Kennedy had been assassinated, or watched as Neil Armstrong walked on the moon? Did you know someone who served in Vietnam? Then you grew up in the '60s! Baby Boomers' ABCs: the '50s and '60s by Susan L. Mathews is for all ages and generations. This delightful and humorous book will bring back many nostalgic memories for those who experienced the '50s and '60s, and show others how groovy life was way back then.

 

Author Susan L. Mathews is a retired elementary teacher in the East Allegheny School District and has been a resident of Monroeville for the past 28 years. Baby Boomers' ABCs is her first book.

misc_none 6:30 PM  -  8:30 PM Canine Body Language    
    Contact: Reference Desk   412-372-0500 X 4   
   

Dogs are very expressive animals. They communicate when they’re feeling happy, sad, nervous, fearful and angry, and they use their faces and bodies to convey much of this information.

 

Dog body language is an elaborate and sophisticated system of nonverbal communication that, fortunately, we can learn to recognize and interpret. Once you learn how to "read" dogs’ postures and signals, you’ll better understand their feelings and motivations and be better able to predict what they are likely to do. These skills will enable you to interact with dogs with greater enjoyment and safety.

 

Recommended for pet parents, babysitters, kennel employees, dog-walkers, pet-sitters, UPS drivers, mail carriers and anyone who wants to understand more about dogs. No dogs permitted.

    Contact: Reference Desk   412-372-0500 X 4   
   

 

Dr. Leelavati Murthy will present a stunning slideshow of a once-in-a-lifetime scientific journey to the earth’s last and final frontier, aboard the expedition ship Corinthian, to study life as it exists in Antarctica, the largest continent. This voyage featured an accomplished scientific expedition team, led by seasoned expedition leaders consisting of expert multi-disciplinary scientists, naturalists, ecologists, conservationists and environmentalists who discussed the unique features of this awe-inspiring land.

 

Wild life in Antarctica is unique and different from the rest of the earth. Albatrosses and petrels are seen whirling across the expedition ship. Humpback and minke whales swim in the Antarctic waters. Shore landings included visits to 10,000-strong penguin rookeries, old whaling stations, elephant seal colonies and operational scientific research stations. The expedition ship included experienced and knowledgeable experts on Antarctica’s bird, sea and land life.

 

Dr. Leelavati Murthy is a Professor of Biology at the Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) Boyce Campus in Monroeville. For the past twelve years at CCAC, Dr. Murthy has taught courses in Biology -- the study of life on this earth including wildlife, the evolution of species on different continents, speciation and extinction of species due to loss of habitat, global warming, melting glaciers, rising sea levels, climate change, animal behavior, biogeochemical cycles, environmental factors affecting human and wildlife health and the impact of human activities on the earth’s environment.

    Contact: Reference Desk   412-372-0500 X 4   
   

Do you know what today's employers are looking for in resumes? Do you know how to write to their needs?

You CAN write your own resume that meets these needs -- and this seminar will help you do just that. Dale Gold, Career Transition Specialist and President of Resources of Gold, will share with you in this seminar how to write an effective resume to increase your chances of getting into the "Yes" pile on recruiters' desks for the jobs you want.

 Should you have one resume or several resumes? Should you include a cover letter when sending a resume? Should you follow up on resumes you send out? How do I increase my chances of getting noticed by the hiring manager? There are many things to consider in sending resumes for job opportunities. In this seminar, we will discuss how to write the resume, practice writing parts of the resume and discuss how to increase your chances of getting your resume into the "Yes" pile so that you are more frequently contacted for job interviews.
