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.**

Fifteen-year-old Kambili’s world is circumscribed by the high walls and frangipani trees of her family compound. Her wealthy Catholic father, under whose shadow Kambili lives, while generous and politically active in the community, is repressive and fanatically religious at home. 
When Nigeria begins to fall apart under a military coup, Kambili’s father sends her and her brother away to stay with their aunt, a University professor, whose house is noisy and full of laughter. There, Kambili and her brother discover a life and love beyond the confines of their father’s authority. The visit will lift the silence from their world and, in time, give rise to devotion and defiance that reveal themselves in profound and unexpected ways. This is a book about the promise of freedom; about the blurred lines between childhood and adulthood; between love and hatred, between the old gods and the new.  from Goodreads

Praise for Between the World and Me

“I’ve been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates. The language ofBetween the World and Me, like Coates’s journey, is visceral, eloquent, and beautifully redemptive. And its examination of the hazards and hopes of black male life is as profound as it is revelatory. This is required reading.”—Toni Morrison

“Immense, multifaceted . . . This is a poet’s book, revealing the sensibility of a writer to whom words—exact words—matter. . . . As a meditation on race in America, haunted by the bodies of black men, women, and children, Coates’s compelling, indeed stunning, work is rare in its power to make you want to slow down and read every word. This is a book that will be hailed as a classic of our time.”Publishers Weekly(starred review)

“The powerful story of a father’s past and a son’s future . . . Coates offers this eloquent memoir as a letter to his teenage son, bearing witness to his own experiences and conveying passionate hopes for his son’s life. . . . This moving, potent testament might have been titled Black Lives Matter.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review) - (Random House, Inc.)

“This is your country, this is your world, this is your body, and you must find some way to live within the all of it.”

Follows a Viet Cong agent as he spies on a South Vietnamese army general and his compatriots as they start a new life on 1975 Los Angeles. - (Baker & Taylor

A profound, startling, and beautifully crafted debut novel, The Sympathizer is the story of a man of two minds, someone whose political beliefs clash with his individual loyalties.

Deciding to go vegetarian in the wake of violent thoughts, Yeong-hye, a woman from an Asian culture of strict societal mores, is denounced as a subversive as she spirals into extreme rebelliousness that causes her to splinter from her true nature and risk her life. - (Baker & Taylor)

A disturbing, yet beautifully composed narrative told in three parts, The Vegetarian is an allegorical novel about modern day South Korea, but also a story of obsession, choice, and our faltering attempts to understand others, from one imprisoned body to another. - (Random House, Inc.)

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.

Vegetable Garden Design Ideas

March 14 – Seed Propagation/ Seed Starting with Susan Doblmaier. 
Learn how and when to start planting seeds for the upcoming gardening season. Many methods of seed starting will be presented, many inexpensively. Topics include how to pick and read a seed packet, best watering methods and when to take the seedlings outside. Beginners and experienced seed starters will find something interesting.

April 4 – Bulbs for Four Seasons with Pauline Myers. 
Bulbs can provide a show throughout the year. In addition to the popular spring bulbs, we’ll discuss other bulbs that provide interest through the other seasons such as canna in summer and the autumn crocus.


CHANGE OF VENUE! APRIL 11 EVENT WILL BE HELD AT ABINGTON FREE LIBRARY!

April 11 – Hydrangeas for Your Garden with Susan Doblmaier.
Discussion will include the care of hydrangeas, including where to site them, how and when to prune them, and how to change the colors of a certain group of hydrangeas. Many more hydrangeas that are suitable for our Pennsylvania gardens will be presented.


April 18 – Gardening For Wildlife with Marc Radell.
How much more we enjoy a well-landscaped yard when we share it with butterflies, songbirds and other desirable wildlife! This class will provide an overview of meeting the basic needs of our animal neighbors: food, water, shelter, places to raise young, and includes sustainable gardening practices. 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. 

Register today. Sign up for the entire series or register for each program separately. Please call 215-886-9818visit Roslyn Branch Library, 2412 Avondale Avenue, Roslyn, PA 19001 or email cfrankford@mclinc.org to register. 


All of the presenters are Master Gardener Volunteers from the Montgomery County Cooperative Extension. Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by the Penn State Cooperative Extension. 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, pest control, vegetable and flower gardening, pruning, and more.

*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.**

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

Community Room

Register for this FREE program in the Library Office, Abington Free Library, call 215-885-5180, ext. 15 or email: kmcinnis@mclinc.org.

Every year a few hummingbirds of species that are common in the western part of the United States do not follow normal migration patterns and end up on the east coast during the fall.

Most are visitors at a feeder for a day or so and then move on. A very small number of these vagrant hummingbirds choose to winter in our area. This program relates the experience of Bert and Leslie Filemyr whose yard and hummingbird feeder in southeast Montgomery County (PA) was frequented by a female Rufous Hummingbird from October to the following April.

This hardy hummingbird survived the super storm “Sandy”, several snow storms, high winds, and temperatures as low as 11 degrees. Find out about hummingbird migration, banding, physiology, feeding preferences, and molt sequences through pictures taken during the almost six month stay of this hummingbird.


Bert FilemyrBert Filemyr is an active field birder both in the Delaware Valley and throughout North America. Retired from a public school teaching career, he pursues his passion for birding while researching topics related to early American ornithology. He has birded extensively in all 50 states, as well as many of the Canadian provinces. Bert has seen at least 100 species in each of the lower 48 states. He currently serves as treasurer and webmaster of the Delaware Valley Ornithological Club (DVOC) and was a member of the championship Nikon/DVOC World Series of Birding Team, the Lagerhead Shrikes. He co-authored, along with Jeff Holt the book “The Composite Prints of Audubon’s Birds of America” and a major article on Alexander Wilson in the Wilson Journal of Ornithology.

*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.**

Fifteen-year-old Kambili’s world is circumscribed by the high walls and frangipani trees of her family compound. Her wealthy Catholic father, under whose shadow Kambili lives, while generous and politically active in the community, is repressive and fanatically religious at home. 
When Nigeria begins to fall apart under a military coup, Kambili’s father sends her and her brother away to stay with their aunt, a University professor, whose house is noisy and full of laughter. There, Kambili and her brother discover a life and love beyond the confines of their father’s authority. The visit will lift the silence from their world and, in time, give rise to devotion and defiance that reveal themselves in profound and unexpected ways. This is a book about the promise of freedom; about the blurred lines between childhood and adulthood; between love and hatred, between the old gods and the new.  from Goodreads

Praise for Between the World and Me

“I’ve been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates. The language ofBetween the World and Me, like Coates’s journey, is visceral, eloquent, and beautifully redemptive. And its examination of the hazards and hopes of black male life is as profound as it is revelatory. This is required reading.”—Toni Morrison

“Immense, multifaceted . . . This is a poet’s book, revealing the sensibility of a writer to whom words—exact words—matter. . . . As a meditation on race in America, haunted by the bodies of black men, women, and children, Coates’s compelling, indeed stunning, work is rare in its power to make you want to slow down and read every word. This is a book that will be hailed as a classic of our time.”Publishers Weekly(starred review)

“The powerful story of a father’s past and a son’s future . . . Coates offers this eloquent memoir as a letter to his teenage son, bearing witness to his own experiences and conveying passionate hopes for his son’s life. . . . This moving, potent testament might have been titled Black Lives Matter.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review) - (Random House, Inc.)

“This is your country, this is your world, this is your body, and you must find some way to live within the all of it.”

Follows a Viet Cong agent as he spies on a South Vietnamese army general and his compatriots as they start a new life on 1975 Los Angeles. - (Baker & Taylor

Deciding to go vegetarian in the wake of violent thoughts, Yeong-hye, a woman from an Asian culture of strict societal mores, is denounced as a subversive as she spirals into extreme rebelliousness that causes her to splinter from her true nature and risk her life. - (Baker & Taylor)

A disturbing, yet beautifully composed narrative told in three parts, The Vegetarian is an allegorical novel about modern day South Korea, but also a story of obsession, choice, and our faltering attempts to understand others, from one imprisoned body to another. - (Random House, Inc.)
