Once they complete their training, Master Gardeners help the Extension better serve the home gardening public by answering questions, speaking to groups, working with 4-H horticultural projects, participating in civic beautification, maintaining demonstration gardens, teaching plant sciences and horticulture, maintaining this web site, and in many other ways.

Master Gardeners are willing and able to educate individuals and groups in gardening topics such as plant selection, composting, soil improvement,

On certain Wednesday mornings the Abington Free Library sparkles. That's when Professor Burton Klein of Strayer University and The College of New Jersey and a former award-winning Philadelphia schools' administrator lends his vivacious energy to a multi-faceted series of talks. 

On those mornings the Shorday Room holds comfortable chairs, a well-dressed man and only the posterboard on an easel that he has illustrated, but the most talented and engrossing actors don't need many props.

Come to the Library and learn what his group of regulars knows: Learning from Prof. Burton Klein is very entertaining!

"With ethos, pathos, and logos, Klein's highly unique presentations feature substance, the dynamics of power speaking, and a blend of humor to touch the hearts of his vast following." from BurtonKleinSpeaks.net


Prof. Klein on TV! 

Motivational speaker and world traveler, Burton Klein has created a series of talks called, Burton Klein Speaks! This series is a Community College of Philadelphia CCPTV production.  Catch him, if you live in Philadelphia, on Comcast 53 or FiOS Verizon 21.

Claggett Wilson, Flower of Death—The Bursting of a Heavy Shell—Not as It Looks, but as It Feels and Sounds and Smells,  c. 1918–19, watercolor and pencil on paperboard, 17 x 22 7/8 in.  Smithsonian American Art Museum.Monday, April 3, 2017, at 7 p.m.

Coinciding with the centenary of America’s involvement with the war, World War I and American Art will be the first major exhibition devoted to exploring the ways in which American artists reacted to the First World War.  

The war’s impact on art and culture was enormous, as nearly all of the era’s major American artists interpreted their experiences, opinions and perceptions of the conflict through their work. 

This lecture will explore PAFA’s exhibition themes and images as well as discuss the artists who chronicled their experiences of the unfolding war as it crept closer to home and then involved them directly as soldiers, relief workers, political dissenters, and official war artists.

Presented by Laurel McLaughlin, Curatorial Assistant on the Exhibition.


Please register online, by phone (215-885-5180 ext. 13), at the information desk or by email (Askabington@gmail.com)

    Contact: Susan Davis   610-970-6551   sdavis@mclinc.org
   

On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth committed what is one of the most infamous crimes in American history, when he shot President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Teatre in Washington D.C.  What were the circumstances that led up to this event?  Why was Booth determined to kill Lincoln?  How was this man able to get within a few feet of an American president without being detected?  Booth escaped from Washington that night and, despite a massive man hunt, was on the loose for 12 days.  It wasn't until April 26 that U.S, cavalrymen found him in a tobacco barn just north of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

As we all know Booth did not act alone.  In the days that followed his crime, the federal government brought to trial eight people who were part of the conspiracy.  On July 7, 1865, four of them were executed in the yard of the Old Capitol Prison in Washington D.C.  Major General Winfield S. Hancock and Major General John F. Hartranft, both from Norristown, played key roles in their execution.

This series will meet Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. on the following dates: April 6, 13, 20 and 27.  The registration fee is $60.00.

“Do you want to become a confident public speaker and strong leader? If so, Toastmasters is the place for you. You’ll find a supportive learn-by-doing environment that allows you to achieve your goals at your own pace.”

“Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership. By regularly giving speeches, giving and receiving feedback in a supportive atmosphere, and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program.”

Newcomers welcome: The local Toastmasters Club now meets at Pottstown Regional Public Library the first and third Thursday evenings of the month.

Join us for an engaging discussion of great literature!   

This month’s classic is “Catch 22," by Joseph Heller. 

At the heart of Catch-22 resides the incomparable, malingering bombardier, Yossarian, a hero endlessly inventive in his schemes to save his skin from the horrible chances of war.

His problem is Colonel Cathcart, who keeps raising the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempts to excuse himself from the perilous missions that he's committed to flying, he's trapped by the Great Loyalty Oath Crusade, the bureaucratic rule from which the book takes its title: a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but if he makes the necessary formal request to be relieved of such missions, the very act of making the request proves that he's sane and therefore, ineligible to be relieved. -- Goodreads.com

Skewed: A Critical Thinker's Guide to Media Bias

 

Skewed - the book by Larry AtkinsRegister for this FREE program online here, in the Library Office, Abington Free Library, call 215-885-5180, ext. 15 or email: kmcinnis@mclinc.org 

In a media landscape dominated by advocacy news networks pushing competing points of view, how can the average person uncover the truth about any particular issue? Skewed will show you how to separate the facts from the agenda-driven spin and selective presentation often used by such news sources as Fox and MSNBC.

The author describes the goals of advocacy journalism — i.e., journalism that transparently advocates a biased worldview — and shows that it has been a part of our history since the 1700s. He assesses the role of talk radio, cable news networks, and the more recent phenomena of special-interest blogs, websites, and citizen journalists in creating the current media climate.

Media Direction PostWhile conceding that advocacy journalism is undoubtedly popular and has some positive aspects, the author also points out its many negative features. Perhaps the most important of these is its polarizing effect on society. 

Skewed will give readers the tools to critique the media, to see both sides of any issue, and to become better informed citizens and voters.

Larry Atkins is a journalist, a lawyer, and a university journalism professor. He is an adjunct professor of journalism at Temple University, Arcadia University, and Montgomery County Community College. He has written more than four hundred articles, op-eds, and essays for many publications, including the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Baltimore Sun, the Chicago Tribune, the Christian Science Monitor, the Plain Dealer (Cleveland), the Dallas Morning News, the Detroit News, Huffingtonpost.com, the Los Angeles Daily News, Newsday, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Washington Post, and many others. He has been interviewed by many media outlets, including National Public Radio. He is the author of Larry the Liberal Lawyer Lashes Out and contributed a chapter to The ASJA Guide to Freelance Writing.

A probing critique of advocacy journalism, particularly its polarizing effect on society and politics, with reader guidelines for objectively evaluating news sources.

“It’s not surprising that as a media literacy advocate I believe Skewed is an essential read. With the information overload we experience daily, there has never been a more important time to reflect on bias, polarization, and objectivity in journalism. Skewed takes us on a deep dive into these issues, which are vital to our democracy today. It asks important questions and makes us think about the news we consume and create. I hope this book sparks conversation in every classroom in the United States.” 
— MICHELLE CIULLA LIPKIN, executive director, National Association for Media Literacy Education

“Skewed is packed with practical information, deep insights, and Larry Atkins’s grounded common sense. Highly recommended!” 
— JONATHAN MABERRY, New York Times–bestselling author of Patient Zero and Kill Switch

    Contact: Susan Davis   610-970-6551   sdavis@mclinc.org
   

On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth committed what is one of the most infamous crimes in American history, when he shot President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Teatre in Washington D.C.  What were the circumstances that led up to this event?  Why was Booth determined to kill Lincoln?  How was this man able to get within a few feet of an American president without being detected?  Booth escaped from Washington that night and, despite a massive man hunt, was on the loose for 12 days.  It wasn't until April 26 that U.S, cavalrymen found him in a tobacco barn just north of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

As we all know Booth did not act alone.  In the days that followed his crime, the federal government brought to trial eight people who were part of the conspiracy.  On July 7, 1865, four of them were executed in the yard of the Old Capitol Prison in Washington D.C.  Major General Winfield S. Hancock and Major General John F. Hartranft, both from Norristown, played key roles in their execution.

This series will meet Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. on the following dates: April 6, 13, 20 and 27.  The registration fee is $60.00.

On certain Wednesday mornings the Abington Free Library sparkles. That's when Professor Burton Klein of Strayer University and The College of New Jersey and a former award-winning Philadelphia schools' administrator lends his vivacious energy to a multi-faceted series of talks. 

On those mornings the Shorday Room holds comfortable chairs, a well-dressed man and only the posterboard on an easel that he has illustrated, but the most talented and engrossing actors don't need many props.

Come to the Library and learn what his group of regulars knows: Learning from Prof. Burton Klein is very entertaining!

"With ethos, pathos, and logos, Klein's highly unique presentations feature substance, the dynamics of power speaking, and a blend of humor to touch the hearts of his vast following." from BurtonKleinSpeaks.net


Prof. Klein on TV! 

Motivational speaker and world traveler, Burton Klein has created a series of talks called, Burton Klein Speaks! This series is a Community College of Philadelphia CCPTV production.  Catch him, if you live in Philadelphia, on Comcast 53 or FiOS Verizon 21. Catch Burton Klein on YouTube from anywhere! Along with Professor Klein's college teaching and voluminous speaking engagements, he can also be found on Philadelphia radio.

misc_lincoln The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Susan Davis   610-970-6551   sdavis@mclinc.org
   

On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth committed what is one of the most infamous crimes in American history, when he shot President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Teatre in Washington D.C.  What were the circumstances that led up to this event?  Why was Booth determined to kill Lincoln?  How was this man able to get within a few feet of an American president without being detected?  Booth escaped from Washington that night and, despite a massive man hunt, was on the loose for 12 days.  It wasn't until April 26 that U.S, cavalrymen found him in a tobacco barn just north of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

As we all know Booth did not act alone.  In the days that followed his crime, the federal government brought to trial eight people who were part of the conspiracy.  On July 7, 1865, four of them were executed in the yard of the Old Capitol Prison in Washington D.C.  Major General Winfield S. Hancock and Major General John F. Hartranft, both from Norristown, played key roles in their execution.

This series will meet Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. on the following dates: April 6, 13, 20 and 27.  The registration fee is $60.00.

“Do you want to become a confident public speaker and strong leader? If so, Toastmasters is the place for you. You’ll find a supportive learn-by-doing environment that allows you to achieve your goals at your own pace.”

“Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership. By regularly giving speeches, giving and receiving feedback in a supportive atmosphere, and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program.”

Newcomers welcome: The local Toastmasters Club now meets at Pottstown Regional Public Library the first and third Thursday evenings of the month.

    Contact: Susan Davis   610-970-6551   sdavis@mclinc.org
   

On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth committed what is one of the most infamous crimes in American history, when he shot President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Teatre in Washington D.C.  What were the circumstances that led up to this event?  Why was Booth determined to kill Lincoln?  How was this man able to get within a few feet of an American president without being detected?  Booth escaped from Washington that night and, despite a massive man hunt, was on the loose for 12 days.  It wasn't until April 26 that U.S, cavalrymen found him in a tobacco barn just north of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

As we all know Booth did not act alone.  In the days that followed his crime, the federal government brought to trial eight people who were part of the conspiracy.  On July 7, 1865, four of them were executed in the yard of the Old Capitol Prison in Washington D.C.  Major General Winfield S. Hancock and Major General John F. Hartranft, both from Norristown, played key roles in their execution.

This series will meet Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. on the following dates: April 6, 13, 20 and 27.  The registration fee is $60.00.

    Location: Pottstown Regional Public Library

“Do you want to become a confident public speaker and strong leader? If so, Toastmasters is the place for you. You’ll find a supportive learn-by-doing environment that allows you to achieve your goals at your own pace.”

“Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership. By regularly giving speeches, giving and receiving feedback in a supportive atmosphere, and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program.”

Newcomers welcome: The local Toastmasters Club now meets at Pottstown Regional Public Library the first and third Thursday evenings of the month.

“Do you want to become a confident public speaker and strong leader? If so, Toastmasters is the place for you. You’ll find a supportive learn-by-doing environment that allows you to achieve your goals at your own pace.”

“Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership. By regularly giving speeches, giving and receiving feedback in a supportive atmosphere, and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program.”

Newcomers welcome: The local Toastmasters Club now meets at Pottstown Regional Public Library the first and third Thursday evenings of the month.
