Stella Batts

 

Stella BattsStella Batts is a 3rd grader who loves to write about herself, her family and her friends. In fact, you could say she writes her own series of books.

In None of Your Beeswax Stella learns about keeping secrets. What really happened to her little sister’s pet fish? What is the secret school project she is working on with her friend Lucy?

In Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow, Stella’s father, who owns a candy store, asks Stella to taste test a new kind of gum called Magical Glow-in-the-Dark chewing gum. Stella can’t wait to try it out, but thinks it brings her bad luck!

Read any or all of the books in the Stella Batts series by Courtney Sheinmel and illustrated by Jennifer A. Bell and come to the Roslyn Library on Monday, February 2, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. to discuss the books and do some craft projects. 
For ages 6-9.

Registration begins Jan. 12.

*Space is limited.*

Tai Chi is an ancient practice originating from Chinese Martial Arts and Traditional Chinese Medicine. "The science of Tai Chi is just now catching up with and susbstantiating what Tai Chi practitioners have known for centuries: Tai Chi often leads to more vigor and energy, greater flexibility, balance and mobility, and an improved sense of well-being." (from the Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi)

In this 8-week session, we will learn a new program of Yang Style Tai Chi Basics and continue to practice forms we have already learned. Our class includes Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up, and a cool down. We include a rich mixture of therapeutic components and we will learn the traditional principles of Tai Chi. The primary goal is for each participant to have a meaningful experience.

Tai Chi is simple but not easy. It is gentle, but can be challenging. Our class is very relaxed and easy to follow. Learning a new program is a great opportunity for beginners.

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SIGN UP FOR CLASS, CALL OR EMAIL LINDA DEMEDIO.

*Space is limited.*

Tai Chi is an ancient practice originating from Chinese Martial Arts and Traditional Chinese Medicine. "The science of Tai Chi is just now catching up with and susbstantiating what Tai Chi practitioners have known for centuries: Tai Chi often leads to more vigor and energy, greater flexibility, balance and mobility, and an improved sense of well-being." (from the Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi)

In this 8-week session, we will learn a new program of Yang Style Tai Chi Basics and continue to practice forms we have already learned. Our class includes Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up, and a cool down. We include a rich mixture of therapeutic components and we will learn the traditional principles of Tai Chi. The primary goal is for each participant to have a meaningful experience.

Tai Chi is simple but not easy. It is gentle, but can be challenging. Our class is very relaxed and easy to follow. Learning a new program is a great opportunity for beginners.

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SIGN UP FOR CLASS, CALL OR EMAIL LINDA DEMEDIO.

Tai Chi is an ancient practice originating from Chinese Martial Arts and Traditional Chinese Medicine. "The science of Tai Chi is just now catching up with and susbstantiating what Tai Chi practitioners have known for centuries: Tai Chi often leads to more vigor and energy, greater flexibility, balance and mobility, and an improved sense of well-being." (from the Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi)

In this 8-week session, we will learn a new program of Yang Style Tai Chi Basics and continue to practice forms we have already learned. Our class includes Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up, and a cool down. We include a rich mixture of therapeutic components and we will learn the traditional principles of Tai Chi. The primary goal is for each participant to have a meaningful experience.

Tai Chi is simple but not easy. It is gentle, but can be challenging. Our class is very relaxed and easy to follow. Learning a new program is a great opportunity for beginners.

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SIGN UP FOR CLASS, CALL OR EMAIL LINDA DEMEDIO.

The Harriet Tubman Living History Experience

 

Millicent Sparks - The Harriet Tubman Experience

Thursday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. 
Community Room, Abington Free Library

Family program geared for ages 8 and up 

The most famous conductor of the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman helped thousands of enslaved Africans to escape to freedom. Her life story is a monument to courage and fearless resolve. This living history performance depicts this 19th century icon by blending accounts of Tubman’s life with an acute sense of Tubman’s personal qualities—her emotional depth, profound spirituality and immense intelligence. Included are Negro spirituals sung by Tubman, often as coded messages designed to facilitate the guiding of her fugitives northward. At the conclusion of the portrayal, actor Millicent Sparks interacts with the audience, responding in character to questions about Tubman’s life in slavery, the Underground Railroad and the Civil War.

 

Millicent Sparks is an accomplished actor/writer/producer who has performed on local, regional and international stages (Asia, Africa and Europe) and in film and on television. Sparks was one of ten performers chosen to represent the United States at an International Arts Festival in Tanjian, China. She also was selected as the first actor to perform the “Freedom Rising” show at the National Constitution Center. Sparks, a lifelong history buff, develops and produces researched living history performance programs with special emphasis on the African American experience through her production company Millicent Sparks Productions, Inc. Sparks regularly portrays Harriet Tubman, as well as other historical figures, for school groups, community organizations, churches and special events.

Registration begins Jan. 29. Please register online, in the Library Office, call 215-885-5180, ext. 15, or email kburnham@mclinc.org.

Tai Chi is an ancient practice originating from Chinese Martial Arts and Traditional Chinese Medicine. "The science of Tai Chi is just now catching up with and susbstantiating what Tai Chi practitioners have known for centuries: Tai Chi often leads to more vigor and energy, greater flexibility, balance and mobility, and an improved sense of well-being." (from the Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi)

In this 8-week session, we will learn a new program of Yang Style Tai Chi Basics and continue to practice forms we have already learned. Our class includes Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up, and a cool down. We include a rich mixture of therapeutic components and we will learn the traditional principles of Tai Chi. The primary goal is for each participant to have a meaningful experience.

Tai Chi is simple but not easy. It is gentle, but can be challenging. Our class is very relaxed and easy to follow. Learning a new program is a great opportunity for beginners.

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

Spring Garden Workshop Series

Hands-on Food Landscaping Series, Sponsored by Feed the Burbs.  $15 for 4 Workshops or $5 per Workshop.   Registration Required.

Introduction to Permaculture & Seed Starting, Saturday, February 28, 11 am -12:30 pm

How much time do you spend on your yard? How much money do you spend on your food? Permaculture design makes your yard look pretty, and saves you time and money.  Find out how to let nature do the work for you, on any piece of land you have!  At this workshop, we will cover the basics of permaculture design, and then hand out seeds to get you started with great tasting veggies. 

Grow Food in the Shade, Saturday, March 21, 11 am -12:30 pm

Who says you need a big open field with full sun to grow food? During this workshop, we will take an existing native plant garden at the library, and add edible plants that grow in the shade of a tree or a house.  Come find out how you can get delicious and nutritious greens, berries and mushrooms, before the farmers market even start!

Soil Building 2.0 and Bio-Intensive, Saturday, April 11, 11 am -12:30 pm

The secret to high quality veggies is high quality soil.  Rather than spraying fertilizers and chemicals to artificially improve soil, this workshop shows how to create healthy soil with less work and more benefits for the environment.  We’ll hand out a planting schedule that will maximize yields for your favorite crops, and show you how to prepare garden beds without a tiller!

Rain Gardens and Plant Guilds, Saturday, May 2, 11 am -12:30 pm

Just like people, some plants get along well with each other and some don’t.  Learn how to grow the happiest by putting them in their favorite conditions.  We’ll talk about what makes a good plant team, or a “guild.” Then, we will examine three locations at the library, each with different characteristics, and give examples of what to plant in each case.

THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING (2014)

Starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones

Nominated for five Oscars(R), including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Original Score

James Marsh's biopic of the celebrated scientist Stephen Hawking, The Theory of Everything, stars Eddie Redmayne as the famous figure. Enrolled as a graduate student at Cambridge, Hawking establishes himself as one of the leading minds of his generation, and begins to win the heart of Jane (Felicity Jones). After one of his earliest breakthroughs, Hawking is diagnosed with ALS, and he becomes less and less able to control his own body. With the loyal Jane at his side, he continues his work. However, as the years progress, Jane starts to feel more like a nurse than a wife, and Hawking begins to have feelings for a woman who is hired to care for him.

This storytime is for children with Sensory Integration Issues, Autism Spectrum Disorders or other developmental delays, their friends and families.

Join us for fine/gross motor activities, songs, fingerplays and stories. We ask that an adult accompany each child, if possible, to foster success for all participants.  This program is open to all ages, but is geared toward a preschool interest and developmental level.

If other storytimes have not been the right fit for your child, this may be just what you are looking for.

Please help us plan by signing up in advance.
