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.

Increasing Your Happiness Workshop III: Living Your Values and Experiencing Deeper Meaning 

At some point in our lives - when our children leave for college, when we lose a job, when we want to change careers, when we retire-we ask ourselves: what’s next, what can I do to have a more satisfying, happier life? At such times, it’s helpful to reflect and discover what your true, authentic values really are, rather than what you think they should be. In this workshop, the instructor, Laura Parkinson, M.S. Counseling, with 30 years corporate training experience, will provide a brief overview of  the latest scientifically researched Values, Meaning strategies as they relate to the PERMA-V positive psychology model. Students will participate in discussion, small group and individual learning activities to discover their authentic core values and experience deeper meaning in their lives.  At the end of this 90 minute workshop, each student will have completed the Values, Meaning workbook which provides him/her with an action plan for applying at least two of his/her core values, to experience more meaning, satisfaction in his/her life.

In the Kingdom of Ice: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeannette by Hampton Sides

In the late nineteenth century, people were obsessed by one of the last unmapped areas of the globe: the North Pole. No one knew what existed beyond the fortress of ice rimming the northern oceans, although theories abounded. The foremost cartographer in the world, a German named August Petermann, believed that warm currents sustained a verdant island at the top of the world. National glory would fall to whoever could plant his flag upon its shores.-Goodreads

Program Description

Join us for a nostalgic trip to Mount Lebanon in the 70s and 80s as we welcome Ken Hohman, author of Paperboy Days – Adventures of the Last Great American Paperboy. Chronicling the highs and lows of delivering the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for almost eight years, Hohman’s high-spirited memoir and tribute to the vanishing trade of newspaper delivery earned praise from the Post-Gazette, Pittsburgh City Paper and Mount Lebanon magazine. Event will feature readings, book discussion, audience Q&A, and the author will be selling and signing copies of his book afterward. Attendees are encouraged to share their paperboy stories as well.

 

About The Author

Ken Hohman is a freelance writer, award-winning advertising copywriter, creative director, soccer coach and jazz deejay. He has been writing professionally for over twenty-five years and his work has been featured in advertising, music publications and websites worldwide. He lives in Richmond, Virginia with his wife, two children, two cats and an attic full of old newspapers. Paperboy Days is his first full-length book.

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.

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

Phipps Conservatory and Botanic Gardens Master Gardener and landscape designer Claire Schuchman will teach this three-week course geared to the novice. We will use the concepts of sustainable design like "right plant/ right place; shading out weeds with ground covers; use of hardy natives plants; and installing rain barrels or permeable pavement. Please bring: graph paper, pencils, ruler, package of different colored pencils, and some 18"- 24" tracing paper. Students will benefit from having a plot plan or a survey of their property, if available, and pictures of gardens they like.

Week One: site analysis, which is simply an inventory of site features including the house, a garage, trees, paths, driveways, easements or even a bad view. Also things like soil conditions, wind, shade and sun.

Week Two: the dreaming begins when the students will develop a "program" which includes planning for outdoor activities like children's play areas, a pool or pond, entertaining, and napping, as well as privacy, lighting and security. These ideas will go on paper and be moved around like a jig-saw puzzle until the student is happy with the placement.

Week Three: we take all that information and begin to put it into a realistic form using the scale of 1" = 8' on graph paper. Supportive materials covered during the three sessions will include a discussion on the five elements of good design, necessary tools to accomplish the plan, and a time for practical questions and answers. Participants should plan to attend all three sessions and bring the recommended supplies and information about their property to get the most out of this landscaping course.

Stop over at Mt. Lebanon Public Library  7 pm, Wednesday, February 15, for a chance to meet President U.S. Grant (or at least a guy who’s spent years re-enacting him). Gettysburg resident Kenneth Serfass returns to Mt. Lebanon Library to present his living history talk about our 18th president. Serfass, a retired U.S. Marine and living history professional, has portrayed Grant for a History Channel documentary and is the bandmaster for the Antebellum Marine Band. This is a return visit for Serfass—he entertained and enlightened audiences last summer as he discussed General U.S Grant role in the Civil War ; this time he concentrates on Grant’s presidency. Elected president in 1868 and reelected in 1872, Grant stabilized the nation during the turbulent Reconstruction period, prosecuted the Ku Klux Klan, enforced civil and voting rights laws… and responded to charges of corruption in executive offices more than any other 19th Century president.

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

Phipps Conservatory and Botanic Gardens Master Gardener and landscape designer Claire Schuchman will teach this three-week course geared to the novice. We will use the concepts of sustainable design like "right plant/ right place; shading out weeds with ground covers; use of hardy natives plants; and installing rain barrels or permeable pavement. Please bring: graph paper, pencils, ruler, package of different colored pencils, and some 18"- 24" tracing paper. Students will benefit from having a plot plan or a survey of their property, if available, and pictures of gardens they like.

Week One: site analysis, which is simply an inventory of site features including the house, a garage, trees, paths, driveways, easements or even a bad view. Also things like soil conditions, wind, shade and sun.

Week Two: the dreaming begins when the students will develop a "program" which includes planning for outdoor activities like children's play areas, a pool or pond, entertaining, and napping, as well as privacy, lighting and security. These ideas will go on paper and be moved around like a jig-saw puzzle until the student is happy with the placement.

Week Three: we take all that information and begin to put it into a realistic form using the scale of 1" = 8' on graph paper. Supportive materials covered during the three sessions will include a discussion on the five elements of good design, necessary tools to accomplish the plan, and a time for practical questions and answers. Participants should plan to attend all three sessions and bring the recommended supplies and information about their property to get the most out of this landscaping course.

ATTENDANCE IS LIMITED, REGISTER AT THE REFERENCE DESK

Claire Schuchman is a local landscape designer, Master Gardener, and frequent contributor to the Mt Lebanon Magazine. Her garden has been featured on past Mt.

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.
