Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

~~Join us for a 60-minute Vinyasa  Yoga class with certified yoga instructors. Vinyasa Yoga consists of  flowing movements synchronized to your breath rhythm.  Modifications and intensification will be offered to meet the needs of beginner students as well as those with a seasoned yoga practice. The flowing sequence will help you build strength, increase flexibility, find mental focus, and teach you how to listen to your body. Each class will begin with warm up flows, followed by a creative standing/ balancing series, floor work and stretching, and ending with a savasana (a resting pose). We encourage the use of yoga props during practice. If you have a yoga block, a yoga strap or a hand towel you're welcome to bring them to class but they are not required. Each participant should bring a yoga mat, water and any yoga questions you may have.  We love to talk yoga and we look forward to seeing you on your mat soon!

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

For decades, Hollywood has turned to literature for inspiration and dedicated itself to recreating the same beloved characters again and again. But in an old town where everything is new again, these screen depictions have built lives of their own by adopting new personas, crossing genres, and even inspiring their own novels and movies. With an in-depth look of five classic characters (Elizabeth Bennet, Sherlock Holmes, Jay Gatsby, Dorothy Gale, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), we explore how cinema has reinvented these icons over the last century and influenced our perspective on the original characters and stories.

    Contact: children's department   412-531-1912   childrenslibrary@einetwork.net
   

Join Mt. Lebanon’s own nationally award-winning illustrator Stacy Innerst and pianist Tom Roberts as they share the art of telling stories through pictures and music. Learn about the music and life of George Gershwin, how his music shaped Innerst’s illustrations, and create a musical illustration of your own. School-age kids through adult. Thursday, July 27, 7 pm

“Through evocative storytelling, expressive hand-lettered text, and dynamic paintings, Slade and Innerst explore the making of Gershwin's acclaimed "Rhapsody in Blue" in an account that's as ‘lively, fun, and different’ as the works the composer wrote… a rousing look at one of the defining contributions to the Great American Songbook.” – Publishers Weekly, starred review —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"One of American music’s masterpieces, ‘Rhapsody in Blue,’ is introduced here along with its composer, George Gershwin…. Slade and Innerst... work beautifully together to create a book that builds to a crescendo just as ‘Rhapsody’ does. The swirling text wraps around the inventive (and mostly blue) art, both literally and figuratively, capturing the time period as well as the dazzling musical piece…. This is fitting celebration of a musical milestone—keep a copy of the song cued up for curious listeners." —Booklist, starred review

“… Rather than offering an overview of his (Gershwin’s) relatively short life, Slade provides a deeper look into his creative process and the ways in which he melded classical, ragtime, jazz, and blues to create a sound purely his own. … VERDICT Readers will get a glimpse into Gershwin's mind and find the music within. Highly recommended for purchase.”—Clara Hendricks, Cambridge Public Library, MA, School Library Journal

Stacy Innerst is an acclaimed artist and illustrator of children’s books. His picture books have been awarded a BCCB Blue Ribbon Picture Book Award as well as two Parents’ Choice Gold Medals and have been selected for recognition by the NY Society of Illustrators, the Smithsonian and the Junior Library Guild, among many others. M is for Music (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) was named a Best Book of the Year by the School Library Journal and The Music in George's Head: George Gershwin Creates Rhapsody in Blue (Boyds Mills Press) earned the 2017 Golden Kite Award for picture book illustration. His paintings and prints have been exhibited widely in the United States and abroad.

Tom Roberts is one of the leading exponents of early jazz piano in the world today. He is a well known performer, arranger and composer with an extensive worldwide career. Besides his pianistic artistry, Roberts is a versatile music historian with special focus on the early Jazz Era . He has contributed articles for magazines such as Piano Today and is a frequent guest at National Public Radio. He frequently appears as a guest host on Rhythm Sweet and Hot on 90.5 WESA radio.

Silk Screen celebrates diversity and the Asian-American experience through film, music and dance. Silk Screen’s goals include educating communities about Asia and Asian American history, culture, experiences and issues, fostering understanding across lines of race, ethnicity, religion, age, and region, and sustaining growth and encouraging excellence in Asian American culture. 

Our First program "An Introduction to the Silk Screen Fetival" will feature 40 minutes of trailers from some of the films of the 2017 Asian American Film Festival. The films will be from Turkey to Japan with English subtitles. The subjects will cover the whole spectrum: comedy, drama, social justice issues, gender, thriller, etc. After the screening of the trailers Silk Screen staff will lead a discussion about each of the films featured. There will be refreshments available during the discussion question and answer session.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

Squirrel Hillbillies
From deep within the urban forest of Pittsburgh's East End, the Squirrel Hillbillies often emerge to share their eclectic mix of folk, country and blues.
Rabidly social and clawingly curious, they relish opportunities to interact with diverse audiences. They have performed more than 250 shows, including appearances at the Three Rivers Arts Festival in Pittsburgh and the Leigh Folk Festival in England. Through a collaborative, nonlinear songwriting process, duo partners Jenny Wolsk Bain and Gary Crouth draw from personal experiences, third-hand stories, and vivid imaginations to craft songs that are unpredictable and quirky yet widely accessible. Their CDs have gotten radio play on stations across the US and around the world.

Concerts will be held in the library's outdoor courtyard. In the event of rain, they will move inside.

Red Beans & Rice Combo

Why are they called The Red Beans and Rice Combo, you might ask…because you can get fries or a biscuit with the combo but you’ll always choose the biscuit because that’s the way they roll— as they play a very cool mix of classic New Orleans R&B, 50’s rock ala Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry, Mose Allison, Tom Waits, Slim Galliard and Louis Jordan—SUPER FUN TUNES!

The Combo features the world celebrated early jazz stride pianist, Tom Roberts (a Foxburg regular) on piano, whistling, & vocals, along with Dave Klug on drums and his custom-built “Kluger Soundboard,” and Wayno on vocals, harmonica, & ukulele.  Mt. Lebanonites Dave and Wayno are also well-known artists.

The fun-loving , sharp-dressed band has been gigging around Pittsburgh for a little over a year, and quickly developed a reputation for delivering a danceable mix of New Orleans R&B, early rock & roll nuggets, and barroom ballads, with a jazzy dash of Tin Pan Alley, and a generous side of wit & humor.

Concerts will be held in the library's outdoor courtyard. In the event of rain, they will move inside.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

Long dismissed as a mere writer of fantasy, J.R.R. Tokien is increasingly recognized as one of the major writers of the 20th century. Why? We will look at the full range of Tolkien's work, not just the "Lord of the Rings," but also the extensive work that lies behind his masterpiece, including his lesser known writings and translations. We consider the moral underpinnings of his work and Tolkien's wrestling with themes of good and evil.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

    Contact: Laurena Schultz, Public Services Librarian   412-531-1912   mtleblibrarian@einetwork.net
   

Mt. Lebanon native Bill Steigerwald’s thirty-six-year career as a journalist included stints with the Los Angeles Times, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.  His work has appeared in dozens of major American papers and in magazines as disparate as Reason, Family Circle, Men’s Journal, and Penthouse.  Join us this evening as he discusses his latest book, 30 days a Black Man: The Forgotten Story That Exposed the Jim Crow South. 

In 1948 most white people in the North had no idea how unjust and unequal daily life was for the 10 million African Americans living in the South. But that suddenly changed after Ray Sprigle, a famous white journalist from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, went undercover and lived as a black man in the Jim Crow South.  Escorted through the South’s parallel black society by John Wesley Dobbs, a historic black civil rights pioneer from Atlanta, Sprigle met with sharecroppers, local black leaders, and families of lynching victims. He visited ramshackle black schools and slept at the homes of prosperous black farmers and doctors. 

Six years before Brown v. Board of Education, seven years before the murder of Emmett Till, and thirteen years before John Howard Griffin’s similar experiment became the bestseller Black Like Me, Sprigle’s intrepid journalism blasted into the American consciousness the grim reality of black lives in the South.  Author Bill Steigerwald elevates Sprigle’s groundbreaking exposé to its rightful place among the seminal events of the early Civil Rights movement.   Light refreshments.

The United States leads the world in cost of health care by a wide margin both by absolute numbers and percent of gross domestic product (GDP). Since the 1950's, we have moved from health care costs of 4% of GDP to 18% of GDP. And in return we get a system that delivers below average results among the developed nations as measured by infant mortality rate, life expectancy, and preventable deaths per capita. We are now watching a Congessional attempt to appeal Obamacare (sort of). Perhaps its time to look at the system from the perspective of both accessibility/ affordability (the current debate) and the delivery system itslef which is strangely absent from the debate. This course will attempt to take the broader look. It will not defend or attack wither Obamacare or teh "Repeal or Replace" bill. Instead it will try to ask what we should do to make the entire system work better and cheaper.

Instructor: Marty Gavin

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

Benjamin Franklin has been referred to as “the first American.” Author, humorist, printer, publisher, inventor, philanthropist, diplomat, and statesman, he was the first resident of the British Colonies to achieve worldwide renown. The quintessential self-made man, he used that prominence to aid in the establishment of history’s most ambitious political experiment: the United States of America. Discover the life and impact of this extraordinary man. Presented by the Historical Society of Mount Lebanon

Jack Puglisi Bio:  Jack Puglisi is a public speaker who specializes in both United States and world history. He has given talks to many local organizations, including the Daughters of the American Revolution, AARP, and Kiwanis, as well as to schools and private groups. He organized and hosted a number of History Night lectures at his former place of employment, Borders Books and Music in Bethel Park. Recently, he has been teaching as an adjunct instructor for community education at Community College of Allegheny County on the subjects of the life of Abraham Lincoln and the American Civil War.

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

Long dismissed as a mere writer of fantasy, J.R.R. Tokien is increasingly recognized as one of the major writers of the 20th century. Why? We will look at the full range of Tolkien's work, not just the "Lord of the Rings," but also the extensive work that lies behind his masterpiece, including his lesser known writings and translations. We consider the moral underpinnings of his work and Tolkien's wrestling with themes of good and evil.

Instructor: Alan Irvine

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

The United States leads the world in cost of health care by a wide margin both by absolute numbers and percent of gross domestic product (GDP). Since the 1950's, we have moved from health care costs of 4% of GDP to 18% of GDP. And in return we get a system that delivers below average results among the developed nations as measured by infant mortality rate, life expectancy, and preventable deaths per capita. We are now watching a Congessional attempt to appeal Obamacare (sort of). Perhaps its time to look at the system from the perspective of both accessibility/ affordability (the current debate) and the delivery system itslef which is strangely absent from the debate. This course will attempt to take the broader look. It will not defend or attack wither Obamacare or teh "Repeal or Replace" bill. Instead it will try to ask what we should do to make the entire system work better and cheaper.

Long dismissed as a mere writer of fantasy, J.R.R. Tokien is increasingly recognized as one of the major writers of the 20th century. Why? We will look at the full range of Tolkien's work, not just the "Lord of the Rings," but also the extensive work that lies behind his masterpiece, including his lesser known writings and translations. We consider the moral underpinnings of his work and Tolkien's wrestling with themes of good and evil.

Jim Stuber will give a talk on “Getting Started in Genealogy”.  The presentation will be a survey of techniques and tools for a beginner to start researching their ancestors, and the more advanced person to learn about resources they aren’t currently using.  There will be time during and after the talk for questions and answers to get you started and keep you going.

Jim Stuber has been researching his ancestors for 40 years and has traced them back to six countries in Europe, several as early as the 1500’s. He has self-published his family history twice. He’s a regular volunteer at the Family History Center in Greentree and heads the Mt. Lebanon Genealogy Society. After a long career in information technology he specializes in internet based research.  The last couple of years he's been accepting research requests from individuals in return for a donation to the Historical Society of Mt. Lebanon, many of them back to colonial America and across the ocean to Europe.

The United States leads the world in cost of health care by a wide margin both by absolute numbers and percent of gross domestic product (GDP). Since the 1950's, we have moved from health care costs of 4% of GDP to 18% of GDP. And in return we get a system that delivers below average results among the developed nations as measured by infant mortality rate, life expectancy, and preventable deaths per capita. We are now watching a Congessional attempt to appeal Obamacare (sort of). Perhaps its time to look at the system from the perspective of both accessibility/ affordability (the current debate) and the delivery system itslef which is strangely absent from the debate. This course will attempt to take the broader look. It will not defend or attack wither Obamacare or teh "Repeal or Replace" bill. Instead it will try to ask what we should do to make the entire system work better and cheaper.

Long dismissed as a mere writer of fantasy, J.R.R. Tokien is increasingly recognized as one of the major writers of the 20th century. Why? We will look at the full range of Tolkien's work, not just the "Lord of the Rings," but also the extensive work that lies behind his masterpiece, including his lesser known writings and translations. We consider the moral underpinnings of his work and Tolkien's wrestling with themes of good and evil.

This course will attempt to take the broader look. It will not defend or attack wither Obamacare or teh "Repeal or Replace" bill. Instead it will try to ask what we should do to make the entire system work better and cheaper.

Imagine clearing out your family attic and discovering hundreds of letters written during the Civil War. Faced with that situation, and not knowing why his family had the letters, Carelton Young used Ancestry.com and other sources to discover how two Vermont soldiers fit into his family heritage. Voices From the Attic: The Williamstown Boys in the Civil War is the story of two brothers who witnessed and helped to make history by fighting in the Peninsula Campaign, then at South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, and Cedar Creek. They preserved that history through their surprisingly detailed and insightful letters. Their letters offer a valuable source of information as seen through the eyes of two soldiers as they fought in America’s great Civil War.

Speaker/Author Carelton Young will have copies of his book available to purchase after the talk.

Long dismissed as a mere writer of fantasy, J.R.R. Tokien is increasingly recognized as one of the major writers of the 20th century. Why? We will look at the full range of Tolkien's work, not just the "Lord of the Rings," but also the extensive work that lies behind his masterpiece, including his lesser known writings and translations. We consider the moral underpinnings of his work and Tolkien's wrestling with themes of good and evil.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

A Glimpse of Alibaba


If you ask a China watcher to name a Chinese company that mirrors its country’s meteoric economic growth, Alibaba would undoubtedly be on the very short list of the top contenders.  In America Alibaba is known as China’s Amazon.  In China it is a synonym for e-commerce platform, allowing millions of e-shops to operate in the largest internet marketplace on earth.  Understanding Alibaba’s unlikely birth and bumpy journey to greatness will help us gain insight into a country in rapid transition.

Join us on Thursday, October 19th at 7:00 p.m. in Room A for “A Glimpse of Alibaba.”  We will start the evening with a viewing of the documentary Crocodile in the Yangtze.  This film was directed by Canadian Porter Erisman, a former VP of marketing for Alibaba. It is an intimate and candid story of Alibaba and its charismatic leader Jack Ma.  Immediately, following the viewing of this film we will have an interview and Q & A session with SHEN, Yonggang (???) and YU, Yifei (???), a husband-and-wife duo who own a successful business on Alibaba’s platform. We hope that the program will provide a unique opportunity for a close look at Alibaba and, through it, China.

 

This discussion is part of the Library's year-long Global Beat program in which the

library has planned a series of talks and musical programs that explore different regions

of our world.

The flowing sequence will help you build strength, increase flexibility, find mental focus, and teach you how to listen to your body. Each class will begin with warm up flows, followed by a creative standing/ balancing series, floor work and stretching, and ending with a savasana (a resting pose). We encourage the use of yoga props during practice. If you have a yoga block, a yoga strap or a hand towel you're welcome to bring them to class but they are not required. Each participant should bring a yoga mat, water and any yoga questions you may have.  We love to talk yoga and we look forward to seeing you on your mat soon!
