A new Tai-Chi class!

A balanced body is a strong body and that happens when every muscle (over 600 of them) are equally strong and flexible. In our NEW program, we will gently stretch muscles from our neck to our fingertips, to our toes. According to the book, Aging Backwards, “No matter what, everybody has the ability to gain some degree of flexibility.” Some of our movements will be from the ancient Chinese practice of Qigong (cheegong) (Qi is life energy).  Most people can adapt easily to these slow, gentle, and highly effective movements. This practice will help to develop a mind-body connection and leave you with a greater sense of well-being. This will combine with deeper forms of stretching which are natural and flow in harmony with the body’s movements. 

There are 4 classes beginning Monday, February 16 and ending March 9. Classes begin at 9:30 am and are about 30-40 minutes.  The fee is $5.00/class payable at each class (a portion benefits the library).

*Registration is required. Please register with the instructor at the email address below.*

Since the library opens at noon on Mondays, the side entrance door will be open from 9:15am until 9:30am.  After that time there will be no admittance.

No experience is necessary. All forms are done while standing. Wear comfortable, loose clothing and flexible shoes.  Always check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program.

Class is taught by Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor.  For more information contact Linda at  taichilcd@yahoo.com.

A new Tai-Chi class!

A balanced body is a strong body and that happens when every muscle (over 600 of them) are equally strong and flexible. In our NEW program, we will gently stretch muscles from our neck to our fingertips, to our toes. According to the book, Aging Backwards, “No matter what, everybody has the ability to gain some degree of flexibility.” Some of our movements will be from the ancient Chinese practice of Qigong (cheegong) (Qi is life energy).  Most people can adapt easily to these slow, gentle, and highly effective movements. This practice will help to develop a mind-body connection and leave you with a greater sense of well-being. This will combine with deeper forms of stretching which are natural and flow in harmony with the body’s movements. 

There are 4 classes beginning Monday, February 16 and ending March 9. Classes begin at 9:30 am and are about 30-40 minutes.  The fee is $5.00/class payable at each class (a portion benefits the library).

*Registration is required. Please register with the instructor at the email address below.*

Since the library opens at noon on Mondays, the side entrance door will be open from 9:15am until 9:30am.  After that time there will be no admittance.

No experience is necessary. All forms are done while standing. Wear comfortable, loose clothing and flexible shoes.  Always check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program.

Class is taught by Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor.  For more information contact Linda at  taichilcd@yahoo.com.

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.

NEW 8-week Session

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

WILLIAM JEANES LIBRARY

NEW 6 WEEK SPRING SESSION

BEGINS FRIDAY, MARCH 13

10:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

In this 6 week session, we will focus on strengthening our Yang style forms as we prepare to begin the Yang Style 24, and we’ll revisit the beautiful 36 Form Sun Style Tai Chi for Arthritis program. Continuing our Qigong practice, we’ll concentrate on breathing, body awareness, relaxation, and mindfulness. We begin our class with a warm up and cool down.

Class dates are Friday – March 13, 20, 27, April 3, 10, 17

$30 for entire session paid at first class - $8/class walk in

Classes are taught by Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor, Linda DeMedio.  Limited space is available. Please contact Linda at taichilcd@yahoo.com or 215-694-1863 for more information about the classes. As always, check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program.

MAKE UP FROM MONDAY, MARCH 2nd

 

A new Tai-Chi class!

A balanced body is a strong body and that happens when every muscle (over 600 of them) are equally strong and flexible. In our NEW program, we will gently stretch muscles from our neck to our fingertips, to our toes. According to the book, Aging Backwards, “No matter what, everybody has the ability to gain some degree of flexibility.” Some of our movements will be from the ancient Chinese practice of Qigong (cheegong) (Qi is life energy).  Most people can adapt easily to these slow, gentle, and highly effective movements. This practice will help to develop a mind-body connection and leave you with a greater sense of well-being. This will combine with deeper forms of stretching which are natural and flow in harmony with the body’s movements. 

There are 4 classes beginning Monday, February 16 and ending March 9. Classes begin at 9:30 am and are about 30-40 minutes.  The fee is $5.00/class payable at each class (a portion benefits the library).

*Registration is required. Please register with the instructor at the email address below.*

Since the library opens at noon on Mondays, the side entrance door will be open from 9:15am until 9:30am.  After that time there will be no admittance.

No experience is necessary. All forms are done while standing. Wear comfortable, loose clothing and flexible shoes.  Always check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program.

Class is taught by Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor.  For more information contact Linda at  taichilcd@yahoo.com.

Vegetable Garden Design IdeasJoin us for a series of Master Gardener Programs at the Roslyn Branch Library.

Monday evenings from 7-8 p.m.

March 16 - Fragrance in the Garden: The Nose Knows with Mary McKnight-Seltzer.

Enjoy sweet scents as you relax in your yard, and feel your mood lift. Dr. Mary McKnight-Seltzer will use PowerPoint slides to provide tips and tricks on how to incorporate scented plants into your existing garden or perhaps into a new garden bed. The presentation includes a question and answer session.

March 30 - Introduction to the World of Orchids with Leslie Smith.

Leslie Morris-Smith takes us around the world on a tour of the fascinating world of orchids. Leslie is a Penn State Master Gardener volunteer educator on orchids, a graduate of the Barnes Horticultural Program at the Barnes Arboretum, and a member of the Greater Philadelphia Orchid Society. She enjoys sharing what she has learned with other orchid growers. Bring your problem orchid to the lecture with any cultivation questions.

April 6 - Square Foot Gardening in Raised Beds with Wayne Brunt.

“Learn how to grow 100% of your harvest, in 20% of the space, using 10% of the water, 5% of the seeds, do 2% of the work, and have 0% of the weeds! 
No kidding!

April 20 - Rain Gardens for Everyone with Leslie Bass.

“Rain Gardens, a simple yet intentional gardening practice to manage rainwater on any property, will be explained with the residential home owner in mind. Learn about the concept and the process of creating your own rain garden this year. Plan to improve environmental quality, support beneficial wildlife, and beautify your property at the same time.”

September 28 - Planting Bulbs in the Fall for Spring Blooms, A Lesson in Patience with Betsy Nutt.

Learn how to plant bulbs in the fall so your garden becomes alive with colorful flowers in the spring. Find out exactly what is a bulb. Discover when is the best time to plant in our area, how to prepare the soil for the healthiest plants, what bulbs are suitable for our location and how to plan your bulb garden for longer blooming. Hear about methods to keep bulb-eating critters at bay. Finally, determine the importance of the care of bulbs after blooming. There will be a number of handouts to reinforce the discussion.


Registration begins on Feb. 23. Sign up for the entire series or register for each program separately. Please call 215-886-9818, go online here, visit Roslyn Branch Library, 2412 Avondale Avenue, Roslyn, PA 19001 or email cfrankford@mclinc.org to register.

misc_lincoln 7:00 PM  -  9:00 PM April 1865 - The Civil War's Last Month Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

April 1865 – The Civil War’s Last Month
Today everybody knows that the Civil War ended in April 1865, but the people who were living it did not.  For them April was filled with drama. This course will cover the war’s dramatic closing events: the break-through attack of the Army of the Potomac at Petersburg, the Confederate evacuation of Richmond, the Appomattox Campaign, the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House, the surrender of Joe Johnston’s army in North Carolina, and the events surrounding the assassination of the President Abraham Lincoln followed by the pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth. 

A retired public school teacher from Pottstown, Pa., Michael T. Snyder has written more than one hundred feature articles on local history for the Pottstown Mercury. He is currently the president of the Pottstown Historical Society and has lectured at many of the area’s historical societies. His book Pottstown Remembered was published by the History Press in April 2010. Snyder, who also has a keen interest in Civil War history, teaches courses on the subject at Montgomery County Community College and has also appeared as a speaker at Civil War Round Tables throughout the country.

Registration: $60.00 (covers 6 sessions)    Payable to : Pottstown Regional Public Library

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

NEW 6 WEEK SPRING SESSION

BEGINS FRIDAY, MARCH 13

10:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

In this 6 week session, we will focus on strengthening our Yang style forms as we prepare to begin the Yang Style 24, and we’ll revisit the beautiful 36 Form Sun Style Tai Chi for Arthritis program. Continuing our Qigong practice, we’ll concentrate on breathing, body awareness, relaxation, and mindfulness. We begin our class with a warm up and cool down.

Class dates are Friday – March 13, 20, 27, April 3, 10, 17

$30 for entire session paid at first class - $8/class walk in

Classes are taught by Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor, Linda DeMedio.  Limited space is available. Please contact Linda at taichilcd@yahoo.com or 215-694-1863 for more information about the classes. As always, check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program.

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.
