Newbery believed that physical activity and games should be rewards for good behavior, and could improve the health and intellect of every boy and girl. During this program, presented by Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation, children ages 7-12 will learn about the history of toys and games in America (did you know that Newbery was the first to write about “base-ball”?) and will be able to play with toys like Jacob’s ladders, whizzers and Graces. Children will get to make a colonial toy of their very own to take home. Adults are welcome.


This program is made possible thanks to the generous sponsorship of Subaru of America! Thank you!

Hey teens, join us for a movie and some popcorn at the library. This week's movie is Unbroken. Here is a short sypnosis about the film: 

As a boy, Louis "Louie" Zamperini is always in trouble, but with the help of his older brother, he turns his life around and channels his energy into running, later qualifying for the 1936 Olympics. When World War II breaks out, Louie enlists in the military. After his plane crashes in the Pacific, he survives an incredible 47 days adrift in a raft, until his capture by the Japanese navy. Sent to a POW camp, Louie becomes the favorite target of a particularly cruel prison commander.

Unbroken is rated PG-13 for war violence including intense sequences of brutality, and for brief language.

All attendees will receive a raffle ticket for the Teen Summer Reading Program.

Thank you to the Friends of the Library for sponsoring this program.

MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING 2

Monday, August 8

1:30 p.m.

in the Community Room

In this sequel to the 2002 sleeper hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Toula (Nia Vardalos) finds her extended family rocked by the revelation that her mother and father were never really married -- which, of course, requires an even bigger Greek wedding so they can officially tie the knot. Meanwhile, Toula struggles to spice up her marriage to Ian (John Corbett), and is heartbroken when her daughter Paris (Elena Kampouris) says she wants to go to a distant college in order to get away from her overbearing clan.

    Contact: Sara Huff   610-828-0441   shuff@mclinc.org
   

Attention teens who are college-bound and those currently in college: You are invited to a viewing of the award-winning documentary The Hunting Ground. The Women's Center of Montomgery County will be leading a discussion after the film (It is a shortened version of the film. Run time is 45 minutes). Refreshments will be served. 

Here is some information about The Hunting Ground (Taken from TheHuntingGround.com): 

The Story

The statistics are staggering. One in five women in college are sexually assaulted, yet only a fraction of these crimes are reported, and even fewer result in punishment for the perpetrators.From the intrepid team behind The Invisible War comes Campus Assaults, a piercing, monumental exposé of rape culture on campuses, poised to light a fire under a national debate.

In a tour de force of verité footage, expert insights, and first-person testimonies, the film follows undergraduate rape survivors pursuing both their education and justice, despite ongoing harassment and the devastating toll on them and their families.

The film captures mavericks Andrea Pino and Annie Clark, survivors who are taking matters into their own hands—ingeniously employing Title IX legal strategy to fight back and sharing their knowledge among a growing, unstoppable network of young women who will no longer be silent.

Since the film’s premiere at Sundance, it had been screened at the White House and hundreds of college campuses across the country. The documentary has inspired new laws in New York and California and changes in campus policies.

The Hunting Ground rated PG-13 for disturbing thematic material involving sexual assault, and for language. 

Registration appreciated. Please register below.

    Contact: Sara Huff   610-828-0441   shuff@mclinc.org
   

Hey teens, join us for a movie and some popcorn! This week's movie is Bend it Like Beckham. Here is a bried sypnosis about the film:

Jessminder Bharmra is a teenage girl of the Sikh faith, the Bhamra family have been settled in Great Britain for several years. While Jess's sister Pinky is in the process of getting married, Jessminder is preparing to play football (soccer) - which is not acceptable to her parents. But Jessminder knows she is good at the sport, and she does receive considerable encouragement. Her parents are clearly uncomfortable with their daughter running around in shorts, chasing a big ball, instead of being clad in a traditional salwar khameez, and learning to cook East Indian recipes. Jessminder must now decide what's important for her. To make matters worse, a football tournament is arranged on the very day of her sister's marriage. Will Jessminder be able to play, or will her dreams be shattered?

Bend it Like Beckham is rated PG-13 for language and sexual content. 

All attendees will receive a raffle ticket for the Teen Summer Reading Program.

Thank you to the Friends of the Library for sponsoring this program.

Sara Johnson once had aspirations to go to Julliard and become a ballerina. However, after the death of her mother, she has lost that passion. She moves to Chicago and falls in love with a young man with a semi-criminal past. To her surprise, her new friends and town help bring back her passion for dancing. 

Save the Last Dance is rated PG-13 for violence, sexual content, language, and brief drug references.

Join us for a fun family movie night, complete with free popcorn!

Based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, The Jungle Book (PG) is a live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong'o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. 106 minutes

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

Fridays at 10:00 am

in the Community Room

*NEW SESSION DATES AND COST TO COME*

Tai Chi, although a martial art, is practiced primarily for its health benefits … And, for good reasons. Scientific studies show that it helps chronic conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes, and that it improves balance, prevents falls, and reduces stress.

The practice of Tai Chi includes cultivating Qi, the vital life energy, which in turn, relaxes us and uplifts our spirits. Most importantly, Tai Chi is an enjoyable form of exercise that people of any age can learn and practice. And, we have a great group of people practicing already!

So come join our class. Feel better … improve your posture, your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility. 

This class is suitable for beginners.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program. 

To register for the class please call or email Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor at 215-694-1863 or taichilcd@yahoo.com

*SCHEDULE TO COME*

“Flexibility is the Fountain of Youth." Really.

There are about 620 muscles and 200 bones in our body. Often several muscles are attached to the same bone, each pulling in a slightly different direction. (For example, foot weakness can cause back pain.)

Following the natural chains of the muscles in continuous circular and rotational movements feels easy and soothing. Using principles of Qigong and Tai Chi, these organic movements leave you with a sense of well-being and harmony.

Our class meets before the library opens. We enter via the side entrance and the doors usually open at 8:30am (but will lock shortly after 8:45am). Wear comfortable clothing and flexible shoes. No mat is necessary.

Always check with your doctor before participating in any new exercise program.

It’s not necessary to pre-register for this class.  If you have any questions please email Linda DeMedio, taichilcd@yahoo.com.

**Since the library opens at 10 a.m., the side entrance door will be open from 8:30 to 8:45 am. After that time there will be no admittance.**

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

Fridays at 10:00 am

in the Community Room

*NEW SESSION DATES AND COST TO COME*

Tai Chi, although a martial art, is practiced primarily for its health benefits … And, for good reasons. Scientific studies show that it helps chronic conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes, and that it improves balance, prevents falls, and reduces stress.

The practice of Tai Chi includes cultivating Qi, the vital life energy, which in turn, relaxes us and uplifts our spirits. Most importantly, Tai Chi is an enjoyable form of exercise that people of any age can learn and practice. And, we have a great group of people practicing already!

So come join our class. Feel better … improve your posture, your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility. 

This class is suitable for beginners.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program. 

To register for the class please call or email Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor at 215-694-1863 or taichilcd@yahoo.com

*SCHEDULE TO COME*

“Flexibility is the Fountain of Youth." Really.

There are about 620 muscles and 200 bones in our body. Often several muscles are attached to the same bone, each pulling in a slightly different direction. (For example, foot weakness can cause back pain.)

Following the natural chains of the muscles in continuous circular and rotational movements feels easy and soothing. Using principles of Qigong and Tai Chi, these organic movements leave you with a sense of well-being and harmony.

Our class meets before the library opens. We enter via the side entrance and the doors usually open at 8:30am (but will lock shortly after 8:45am). Wear comfortable clothing and flexible shoes. No mat is necessary.

Always check with your doctor before participating in any new exercise program.

It’s not necessary to pre-register for this class.  If you have any questions please email Linda DeMedio, taichilcd@yahoo.com.

**Since the library opens at 10 a.m., the side entrance door will be open from 8:30 to 8:45 am. After that time there will be no admittance.**

Carol B. Polis, The First Woman Professional Boxing Judge

 

Come hear Carol B. Polis, The First Woman Professional Boxing JudgeCome hear Carol B. Polis, The First Woman Professional Boxing Judge
Sunday, September 18, from 2-4 p.m.
Community Room, Abington Free Library

Having officiated 27 title fights plus two high-profile non-title heavyweight fights with Mike Tyson and Larry Holmes, Polis, a single parent and recent cancer survivor, has a historically significant story to tell...

Carol B. Polis:

  • First woman ever to judge professional boxing. Appointed by Pennsylvania Governor, Milton Shapp 2/1/73.
  • Judged hundreds of professional boxing matches for more than 40 years
  • Judged title fights in USA, France, Italy, Japan, Argentina and many other countries.
  • Appeared as featured contestant on “What’s My Line” and twice on “To Tell the Truth”.
  • Survived a controversial boxing tournament run by Don King and the FBI investigation that followed it.
  • Appeared briefly in “Rocky V”
  • Has given hundreds of prime radio and tv interviews, both regional and national.
  • Wrote and published in 2012, a book, The Lady is a Champ. The book is currently in consideration for film rights.
  • Battled cancer and lived to write about it.
  • Raised four children and a grandchild.
  • While serving as a professional boxing judge, was also a licensed stock broker and industrial real estate agent.

The 1970s were a time of great upheaval for women. There was Roe v. Wade and the Equal Rights Amendment. There were Gloria Steinem, Billie Jean King, Golda Meir, and Carol Polis.

In 1971, Carol Polis married a part-time professional boxing referee. Within two years, she went from being a squeamish spectator to a professional boxing judge-the first woman ever to do so.

It was also the golden age of boxing. Carol Polis had a ringside seat for all of it. Sometimes she was the main event. From cutting her teeth on three-round undercard fights at the gritty Blue Horizon in Philadelphia to finding herself at the center of a riot at Madison Square Garden; From being schooled in Joe Frazier’s sweat drenched gym on North Broad Street to officiating in a Don King tournament and being investigated by the FBI; From following the careers of local fighters like Boogaloo Watts and Willie “the Worm” Monroe to becoming a personal guest of Muhammad Ali; From speaking at the nearby Rotary Club to appearing as a contestant on What’s My Line and To Tell the Truth, five-foot-one, 115-pound Carol Polis, for better or for worse, was treated as an ambassador for all women, a novelty, and even a misfit. Polis was bound by none of these labels.

How much more we enjoy a well-landscaped yard when we share it with butterflies, songbirds and other desirable wildlife!

We’ll discuss some specific measures for attracting butterflies, other pollinators, songbirds, and hummingbirds.

April 25 – Cooking With Your Garden with Julie Phillips
Cooking with Your Garden focuses on easy-to-grow vegetables for inclusion in quick and healthy meals. In addition to discussing the health and environmental benefits of consuming in-season produce, mini-demonstrations may provide participants with the opportunity to assist in the preparation of specially selected recipes. Attendees also will have the opportunity to taste a number of prepared dishes being discussed. The presentation focuses on herbs and produce which require minimal care and can be grown in traditional gardens, raised beds or in containers for those with limited space. The presentation will also provide information on harvesting and drying herbs for use in cooking.

Sept. 19 – Going Green with Sharon Gross.
Going green is a program about doing things that make sense for the environment. Whether it’s water gardens, edibles, native plants or the appliances in your home, there are ecological impacts to the choices you make.

*SCHEDULE TO COME*

“Flexibility is the Fountain of Youth." Really.

There are about 620 muscles and 200 bones in our body. Often several muscles are attached to the same bone, each pulling in a slightly different direction. (For example, foot weakness can cause back pain.)

Following the natural chains of the muscles in continuous circular and rotational movements feels easy and soothing. Using principles of Qigong and Tai Chi, these organic movements leave you with a sense of well-being and harmony.

Our class meets before the library opens. We enter via the side entrance and the doors usually open at 8:30am (but will lock shortly after 8:45am). Wear comfortable clothing and flexible shoes. No mat is necessary.

Always check with your doctor before participating in any new exercise program.

It’s not necessary to pre-register for this class.  If you have any questions please email Linda DeMedio, taichilcd@yahoo.com.

**Since the library opens at 10 a.m., the side entrance door will be open from 8:30 to 8:45 am. After that time there will be no admittance.**

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

Fridays at 10:00 am

in the Community Room

*NEW SESSION DATES AND COST TO COME*

Tai Chi, although a martial art, is practiced primarily for its health benefits … And, for good reasons. Scientific studies show that it helps chronic conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes, and that it improves balance, prevents falls, and reduces stress.

The practice of Tai Chi includes cultivating Qi, the vital life energy, which in turn, relaxes us and uplifts our spirits. Most importantly, Tai Chi is an enjoyable form of exercise that people of any age can learn and practice. And, we have a great group of people practicing already!

So come join our class. Feel better … improve your posture, your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility. 

This class is suitable for beginners.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program. 

To register for the class please call or email Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor at 215-694-1863 or taichilcd@yahoo.com

*SCHEDULE TO COME*

“Flexibility is the Fountain of Youth." Really.

There are about 620 muscles and 200 bones in our body. Often several muscles are attached to the same bone, each pulling in a slightly different direction. (For example, foot weakness can cause back pain.)

Following the natural chains of the muscles in continuous circular and rotational movements feels easy and soothing. Using principles of Qigong and Tai Chi, these organic movements leave you with a sense of well-being and harmony.

Our class meets before the library opens. We enter via the side entrance and the doors usually open at 8:30am (but will lock shortly after 8:45am). Wear comfortable clothing and flexible shoes. No mat is necessary.

Always check with your doctor before participating in any new exercise program.

It’s not necessary to pre-register for this class.  If you have any questions please email Linda DeMedio, taichilcd@yahoo.com.

**Since the library opens at 10 a.m., the side entrance door will be open from 8:30 to 8:45 am. After that time there will be no admittance.**
