Today you can wander our 60-acre Woodlands and enjoy an award-winning Lotus Pond. The stunning Margaret Lawrence Simon Dogwood Meadow. Fun exploration stations for families. And three miles of peaceful, wooded trails. You can see the roots of our region in an historic homestead featuring a log cabin, heritage apple orchard and chickens. But with 460 acres, we’re just beginning to blossom.

Ultimately, our plan is to thrill visitors with twenty distinct gardens, four diverse woodland experiences and a spectacular Visitor Center. We’ll offer a world-class example of reclamation and stewardship. And an outdoor garden experience that will ultimately rival the five largest in the United States.

The Garden is already connecting people to Pittsburgh’s history and the beauty of Western Pennsylvania.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Pride and Prejudice: The African-American Experience in Pittsburgh Baseball    
    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

  From Josh Gibson and Satchel Paige to Willie Stargell and Barry Bonds, African-Americans have played a major role in the     
history of Pittsburgh baseball.  Before Jackie Robinson crossed Major League baseball's color line in 1947, the Pittsburgh Crawfords and the Homestead Grays dominated the Negro Leagues.  Since baseball's integration, African-Americans have led the Pirates to World Series and Division championships.  African-American ballplayers, however, have also had to struggle for acceptance in Pittsburgh.  While they could take pride in their accomplishments on the field, they often faced prejudice and hostility in a racially-divided city.  At the beginning of the 1970s, the Pirates became the first team in baseball to field an all-black line up, but in the 1980s, when the franchise struggled with poor attendance and was on the verge of leaving the city, critics claimed that attendance was down because the Pirates had too many black players.

Pittsburgh native Richard "Pete" Peterson is the author of Growing Up With Clemente and Pops:The Willie Stargell  Story for a talk on the contributions African-Americans have made to baseball not only here in Pittsburgh but throughout the major leagues. In addition to being an author, Pete is a retired English professor at Southern Illinois University, editor of The Pirates Reader, an occasional contributor to the  Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the commentator for  "Reading Baseball" on his university's NPR station.

Read a review of Pete's Growing Up With Clemente and Pops:The Willie Stargell  from the City Paper

http://www.pghcitypaper.com/pittsburgh/two-new-biographies-run-different-basepaths-to-willie-stargell/Content?oid=1661994

Pete will have copies of his latest publication The Slide: Leyland, Bonds & the Star-Crossed Pittsburgh Pirates available for sale and signing the evening of the event.

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 half century ago, the United States embarked on a military campaign that began with broad support, but within a few years became widely and wildly unpopular. The Vietnam War has been well documented by historians and journalists. It has also been chronicled by some of its participants, novelists, musicians, and filmmakers. It is through the words, lyrics, and lenses of some of those that Vietnam will be remembered and discussed. Using The Vietnam Reader, compiled and edited by Pittsburgh writer Stewart O’Nan, we will recall a war and era that, to varying degrees, has influenced the lives of all of us in the OLLI at Pitt program.

This program is part of a series of classes. It is recommended that participants register for all classes in a series. Participants must register for each class independently.

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

Pittsburgh was home to a number of fine sculptors in the nineteenth century who, although unknown today, left an impressive body of work in Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania. Their names include Broom, Clarke, Mayer, Reniers, Spriestersbach, and Watson.

Recently, previously unidentified works by these sculptors have been discovered, including several important monuments at Allegheny Cemetery.

Learn about these sculptors and see examples of their work at this class, then join a tour of Allegheny Cemetery the following Saturday to see the sculptures in person.

Art Historian/former art dealer Gary Grimes will lead this two-session course. Grimes created the Grimes File on Nineteenth Century Art in Pittsburgh, which is composed of more than 10,000 pages of news articles about art in the Steel City, gleaned entirely from Pittsburgh newspapers published between 1805 and 1900.

Throughout the course we will see possible remedies that government can take to ease the transition during the coming societal disruption.  The final two classes will look at the impediments to taking rational action.

A half century ago, the United States embarked on a military campaign that began with broad support, but within a few years became widely and wildly unpopular. The Vietnam War has been well documented by historians and journalists. It has also been chronicled by some of its participants, novelists, musicians, and filmmakers. It is through the words, lyrics, and lenses of some of those that Vietnam will be remembered and discussed. Using The Vietnam Reader, compiled and edited by Pittsburgh writer Stewart O’Nan, we will recall a war and era that, to varying degrees, has influenced the lives of all of us in the OLLI at Pitt program.

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

Mt. Lebanon resident, author, and mime Dan Kamin will discuss the new book Charlie Chaplin’s Red Letter Days, which he annotated. 

The book contains the recently discovered eyewitness account of what was going on behind the scenes in Chaplin’s fun factory.  Written by Fred Goodwins, one of the actors in the company, the articles originally appeared in thirty-seven instalments in the British magazine Red Letter.  In his talk Dan will reveal the backstory of this fascinating excursion into the private world of Hollywood’s first superstar 

Charlie Chaplin’s Red Letter Days is a vivid account of the ebb and flow of life at the Chaplin studio. Goodwins was an astute observer who deepens our understanding of Chaplin’s artistry and sheds new light on his personality. He also provides charming and revealing portraits of Chaplin’s unsung collaborators, such as his beloved costar Edna Purviance, his burly nemesis Eric Campbell, and the other familiar faces that populate his films. Goodwins depicts Chaplin in the white heat of artistic creation, an indefatigable imp entertaining and inspiring the company on the set. He also describes gloomy, agonizing periods when Chaplin was paralyzed with indecision or exhaustion, or simply frustrated that it was raining and they couldn’t shoot.

Dan Kamin is a Chaplin authority, having authored The Comedy of Charlie Chaplin. Kamin also trained Robert Downey Jr. and Johnny Depp for their acclaimed physical comedy sequences in the movies Chaplin and Benny and Joon respectively.

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 half century ago, the United States embarked on a military campaign that began with broad support, but within a few years became widely and wildly unpopular.

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 half century ago, the United States embarked on a military campaign that began with broad support, but within a few years became widely and wildly unpopular. The Vietnam War has been well documented by historians and journalists. It has also been chronicled by some of its participants, novelists, musicians, and filmmakers. It is through the words, lyrics, and lenses of some of those that Vietnam will be remembered and discussed. Using The Vietnam Reader, compiled and edited by Pittsburgh writer Stewart O’Nan, we will recall a war and era that, to varying degrees, has influenced the lives of all of us in the OLLI at Pitt program.

Throughout the course we will see possible remedies that government can take to ease the transition during the coming societal disruption.  The final two classes will look at the impediments to taking rational action.

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.

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: 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.

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.

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.

A crankie is an old storytelling art form. It's a long illustrated scroll that is wound onto two spools. The spools are loaded into a box which has a viewing screen. The scroll is hand-cranked while the story is told. It can be accompanied by a narrative, song or tune.  In this workshop we will look at different mediums for making a crankie scroll, create a storyboard, create our scrolls, and construct the crankie box.

This is a four-day workshop for rising 6th through 8th graders.  Participants must be able to attend all four sessions.  Please pre-register as space is limited.

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 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.

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! 

Instructors: Barbara Garcia-Bernardo, 200-RYT;  Elizabeth Small, 200-RYT, & Brittany Cairns, 200-RYT.
