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

World Book Night is an annual celebration dedicated to spreading the love of reading, person to person.  Each year on April 23, tens of thousands of people go out into their communities and give half a million free World Book Night paperbacks to light and non-readers.  This is the third year that Mt. Lebanon Public Library has been a designated pick-up location for volunteer book "givers."  These local readers will be giving out free books at various locations throughout our community.

World Book Night is about giving books and encouraging reading in those who don’t regularly do so. But it is also about more than that: It’s about people, communities and connections, about reaching out to others and touching lives in the simplest of ways—through the sharing of stories.  Watch for your friends and neighbors in the community who are "givers" or consider distributing books next year.  Share the love of reading TODAY!

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

Rain Water Harvesting and Watershed Awareness

Between Earth and Earth’s atmosphere, the amount of water remains constant; there is never a drop more, never a drop less. This is a story of circular infinity, of a planet birthing itself. “

The water molecules that we use and treasure today are the same water molecules that have always been on Planet Earth. We never get new water; therefore conservation and protection are essential.

Rainwater harvesting is an effective, ecological and economical method for the conservation and protection of this precious natural resource. By catching, storing and re-directing your roof water for on-site usage you can take advantage of this free source of precious water while at the same time contributing to a reduction in combined sewer overflows (CSO) that plague the Greater Pittsburgh area, helping to reduce flooding and nonpoint source pollution, and contributing to recharging our groundwater supply. You’ll also have a free source of non-chlorinated water for use in your yard and garden.

Learn how to harvest rainwater from your roof and divert it for on-site usage in the landscape.  Attend a rain barrel workshop and return home equipped with the knowledge and hardware needed to assemble and install a rain barrel. Participants also receive a $10 coupon good toward the purchase of a drum at Penn Barrel Company.

To register for the rain barrel workshop, go to http://www.zerowastepgh.org/ZW-PRC-rainbarrel.html or call 412-488-7490 X 247.  The cost is $50/person or $55 /couple.

This ongoing series is an in-depth examination and evaluation in an attempt to draw conclusions from the historical, political, and economic roots of the Great Depression and the Great Financial Crisis of 2008.  It will be an innovative, interactive program which will attempt to determine whether the same processes, problems, and structures which led to the Great Depression contributed to the GFC of 2008.  In the coming year we will be examining the period between 1964 and 2014 to bring our historical context up to date and to provide some in-depth understanding of the economic, social, political and military issues confronting our world in the coming decades

To date we have explored two texts:

  • Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in our Time by Carroll Quigley
  • The Gods of Money: Wall Street and the Death of the American Century by F. William Engdahl

We are now beginning coverage of Steve Keen’s Debunking Economics: The Naked Emperor Dethroned beginning with the November 2013 meeting.  Additional readings and articles will be assigned as the program progresses.  As we begin discussions on the issues to be faced in the coming decades, we will proceed as if we were a non-partisan think-tank attempting to develop and provide policy advice to national leaders.  This should be an entertaining exercise where all participants will be afforded the opportunity to provide leadership and guidance.

For more information about this program, please contact John Hemington at jehemington@verizon.net. Mr. Hemington is a retired attorney and IT director with over 40 years’ independent study of economic and political power.

Philippe challenges Driss, offering him a trial period of one month to gain experience helping him. Then Driss can decide whether he would like to stay with him or not. Driss accepts the challenge and moves to the mansion, changing the boring life of Phillipe and his employees.

    Contact: Elizabeth Krebs   412-531-1912   krebse@einetwork.net
   

This group reads selections from a wide variety of mystery genres.

Selections for 2014:

January 21, 2014 – Butterfly Clues / Kate Ellison -- engaging mystery starring a teenage girl with obsessive-compulsive disorder layered on top of her almost supernatural loneliness

February 18, 2014 – Standing in Another Man’s Grave / Ian Rankin -- Rankin has moved on since Rebus’ retirement party, beginning a new series starring another Edinburgh cop, Malcolm Fox, but Fox couldn’t be more different from Rebus: a reformed drunk rather than a functioning one; a rule follower rather than a habitual rule breaker; an internal-affairs officer rather than a detective. So who could resist the temptation to put them together in the same novel?

March 18, 2014 - Shadow Account / Stephen Frey – thriller featuring Connor Ashby, a young Wall Street player who uncovers corporate conspiracy and White House intrigue

April 15, 2014 - Bad Day for Sorry / Sophie Littlefield-- introduces Stella Hardesty, a widow and survivor of domestic violence, who owns a sewing shop in a sleepy Missouri town. On the side, Stella solves problems and metes out justice on behalf of battered women,

May 20, 2014 - China Lake / Meg Gardiner -- Evan Delaney learns that not only has her ex- sister-in-law joined a religious cult, but the unstable young mother plans to regain custody of her son and disappear with him into the fold of the fanatical group

June 17, 2014 – Woman in White / Wilkie Colins -- large and sweeping, with skillfully drawn characters, lovely passages and absolutely haunting scenes, a fully formed 19th century mystery novel with all the trimmings

July 15, 2014 – Shanghai Factor / Charles McCarry -- absorbing tale of global skullduggery that leaves the reader guessing at every turn

August 19, 2014 – The Doorbell Rang (Nero Wolfe) / Rex Stout -- Wolfe and his sidekick Archie Goodwin face the malevolent forces of J. Edgar Hoover and his FBI minions. Luckily, Stout's heart and his writing style are more than equal to the challenge.

September 16, 2014 – Case Histories / Kate Atkinson -- Private detective Jackson Brodie finds himself entangled in three distinctly different cases with remarkable connections between them.

October 21, 2014 - Simple / Kathleen George – set in Pittsburgh featuring a fully realized cast of characters, a close-knit group of detectives who deal with shades of gray in crime-solving.

November 18, 2014 - Constant Lovers / Chris Nickson -- July, 1732: On a hot summer morning, Richard Nottingham, Constable of Leeds, is called out when a young woman is found stabbed to death among the ruins of Kirkstall Abbey.

December 16, 2014 – Beautiful Place to Die / Malla Nunn -- darkly romantic crime novel set in 1950s apartheid South Africa, featuring Detective Emmanuel Cooper

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

This ongoing series is an in-depth examination and evaluation in an attempt to draw conclusions from the historical, political, and economic roots of the Great Depression and the Great Financial Crisis of 2008.  It will be an innovative, interactive program which will attempt to determine whether the same processes, problems, and structures which led to the Great Depression contributed to the GFC of 2008.  In the coming year we will be examining the period between 1964 and 2014 to bring our historical context up to date and to provide some in-depth understanding of the economic, social, political and military issues confronting our world in the coming decades

To date we have explored two texts:

  • Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in our Time by Carroll Quigley
  • The Gods of Money: Wall Street and the Death of the American Century by F. William Engdahl

We are now beginning coverage of Steve Keen’s Debunking Economics: The Naked Emperor Dethroned beginning with the November 2013 meeting.  Additional readings and articles will be assigned as the program progresses.  As we begin discussions on the issues to be faced in the coming decades, we will proceed as if we were a non-partisan think-tank attempting to develop and provide policy advice to national leaders.  This should be an entertaining exercise where all participants will be afforded the opportunity to provide leadership and guidance.

For more information about this program, please contact John Hemington at jehemington@verizon.net. Mr. Hemington is a retired attorney and IT director with over 40 years’ independent study of economic and political power.

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

The Fort Pitt Block House is the oldest architectural landmark in Pittsburgh, and 2014 commemorates the 250th anniversary of its construction in 1764.  Built as a defensive military redoubt, it is the last surviving structure of Fort Pitt, a key British fortification during the French and Indian War.  The presentation will discuss how and why the Block House was built and what its original purpose was in relation to the fort.  Other areas of the Block House’s history will also be explored including its years as a private dwelling during the 19th century, its restoration and preservation by the Fort Pitt Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and its escape from destruction by the Pennsylvania Railroad in the early 20th century. The program will be presented by Block House curator Emily Weaver who recently published a history of the Block House in honor of its 250th anniversary.  Copies of her book, The Fort Pitt Block House, will be available for purchase and signing following the program.

This group reads selections from a wide variety of mystery genres.

Selections for 2014:

January 21, 2014 – Butterfly Clues / Kate Ellison -- engaging mystery starring a teenage girl with obsessive-compulsive disorder layered on top of her almost supernatural loneliness

February 18, 2014 – Standing in Another Man’s Grave / Ian Rankin -- Rankin has moved on since Rebus’ retirement party, beginning a new series starring another Edinburgh cop, Malcolm Fox, but Fox couldn’t be more different from Rebus: a reformed drunk rather than a functioning one; a rule follower rather than a habitual rule breaker; an internal-affairs officer rather than a detective. So who could resist the temptation to put them together in the same novel?

March 18, 2014 - Shadow Account / Stephen Frey – thriller featuring Connor Ashby, a young Wall Street player who uncovers corporate conspiracy and White House intrigue

April 15, 2014 - Bad Day for Sorry / Sophie Littlefield-- introduces Stella Hardesty, a widow and survivor of domestic violence, who owns a sewing shop in a sleepy Missouri town. On the side, Stella solves problems and metes out justice on behalf of battered women,

May 20, 2014 - China Lake / Meg Gardiner -- Evan Delaney learns that not only has her ex- sister-in-law joined a religious cult, but the unstable young mother plans to regain custody of her son and disappear with him into the fold of the fanatical group

June 17, 2014 – Woman in White / Wilkie Colins -- large and sweeping, with skillfully drawn characters, lovely passages and absolutely haunting scenes, a fully formed 19th century mystery novel with all the trimmings

July 15, 2014 – Shanghai Factor / Charles McCarry -- absorbing tale of global skullduggery that leaves the reader guessing at every turn

August 19, 2014 – The Doorbell Rang (Nero Wolfe) / Rex Stout -- Wolfe and his sidekick Archie Goodwin face the malevolent forces of J. Edgar Hoover and his FBI minions. Luckily, Stout's heart and his writing style are more than equal to the challenge.

September 16, 2014 – Case Histories / Kate Atkinson -- Private detective Jackson Brodie finds himself entangled in three distinctly different cases with remarkable connections between them.

October 21, 2014 - Simple / Kathleen George – set in Pittsburgh featuring a fully realized cast of characters, a close-knit group of detectives who deal with shades of gray in crime-solving.

November 18, 2014 - Constant Lovers / Chris Nickson -- July, 1732: On a hot summer morning, Richard Nottingham, Constable of Leeds, is called out when a young woman is found stabbed to death among the ruins of Kirkstall Abbey.

December 16, 2014 – Beautiful Place to Die / Malla Nunn -- darkly romantic crime novel set in 1950s apartheid South Africa, featuring Detective Emmanuel Cooper

This ongoing series is an in-depth examination and evaluation in an attempt to draw conclusions from the historical, political, and economic roots of the Great Depression and the Great Financial Crisis of 2008.  It will be an innovative, interactive program which will attempt to determine whether the same processes, problems, and structures which led to the Great Depression contributed to the GFC of 2008.  In the coming year we will be examining the period between 1964 and 2014 to bring our historical context up to date and to provide some in-depth understanding of the economic, social, political and military issues confronting our world in the coming decades

To date we have explored two texts:

  • Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in our Time by Carroll Quigley
  • The Gods of Money: Wall Street and the Death of the American Century by F. William Engdahl

We are now beginning coverage of Steve Keen’s Debunking Economics: The Naked Emperor Dethroned beginning with the November 2013 meeting.  Additional readings and articles will be assigned as the program progresses.  As we begin discussions on the issues to be faced in the coming decades, we will proceed as if we were a non-partisan think-tank attempting to develop and provide policy advice to national leaders.  This should be an entertaining exercise where all participants will be afforded the opportunity to provide leadership and guidance.

For more information about this program, please contact John Hemington at jehemington@verizon.net. Mr. Hemington is a retired attorney and IT director with over 40 years’ independent study of economic and political power.

This group reads selections from a wide variety of mystery genres.

Selections for 2014:

January 21, 2014 – Butterfly Clues / Kate Ellison -- engaging mystery starring a teenage girl with obsessive-compulsive disorder layered on top of her almost supernatural loneliness

February 18, 2014 – Standing in Another Man’s Grave / Ian Rankin -- Rankin has moved on since Rebus’ retirement party, beginning a new series starring another Edinburgh cop, Malcolm Fox, but Fox couldn’t be more different from Rebus: a reformed drunk rather than a functioning one; a rule follower rather than a habitual rule breaker; an internal-affairs officer rather than a detective. So who could resist the temptation to put them together in the same novel?

March 18, 2014 - Shadow Account / Stephen Frey – thriller featuring Connor Ashby, a young Wall Street player who uncovers corporate conspiracy and White House intrigue

April 15, 2014 - Bad Day for Sorry / Sophie Littlefield-- introduces Stella Hardesty, a widow and survivor of domestic violence, who owns a sewing shop in a sleepy Missouri town. On the side, Stella solves problems and metes out justice on behalf of battered women,

May 20, 2014 - China Lake / Meg Gardiner -- Evan Delaney learns that not only has her ex- sister-in-law joined a religious cult, but the unstable young mother plans to regain custody of her son and disappear with him into the fold of the fanatical group

June 17, 2014 – Woman in White / Wilkie Colins -- large and sweeping, with skillfully drawn characters, lovely passages and absolutely haunting scenes, a fully formed 19th century mystery novel with all the trimmings

July 15, 2014 – Shanghai Factor / Charles McCarry -- absorbing tale of global skullduggery that leaves the reader guessing at every turn

August 19, 2014 – The Doorbell Rang (Nero Wolfe) / Rex Stout -- Wolfe and his sidekick Archie Goodwin face the malevolent forces of J. Edgar Hoover and his FBI minions. Luckily, Stout's heart and his writing style are more than equal to the challenge.

September 16, 2014 – Case Histories / Kate Atkinson -- Private detective Jackson Brodie finds himself entangled in three distinctly different cases with remarkable connections between them.

October 21, 2014 - Simple / Kathleen George – set in Pittsburgh featuring a fully realized cast of characters, a close-knit group of detectives who deal with shades of gray in crime-solving.

November 18, 2014 - Constant Lovers / Chris Nickson -- July, 1732: On a hot summer morning, Richard Nottingham, Constable of Leeds, is called out when a young woman is found stabbed to death among the ruins of Kirkstall Abbey.

December 16, 2014 – Beautiful Place to Die / Malla Nunn -- darkly romantic crime novel set in 1950s apartheid South Africa, featuring Detective Emmanuel Cooper

This ongoing series is an in-depth examination and evaluation in an attempt to draw conclusions from the historical, political, and economic roots of the Great Depression and the Great Financial Crisis of 2008.  It will be an innovative, interactive program which will attempt to determine whether the same processes, problems, and structures which led to the Great Depression contributed to the GFC of 2008.  In the coming year we will be examining the period between 1964 and 2014 to bring our historical context up to date and to provide some in-depth understanding of the economic, social, political and military issues confronting our world in the coming decades

To date we have explored two texts:

  • Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in our Time by Carroll Quigley
  • The Gods of Money: Wall Street and the Death of the American Century by F. William Engdahl

We are now beginning coverage of Steve Keen’s Debunking Economics: The Naked Emperor Dethroned beginning with the November 2013 meeting.  Additional readings and articles will be assigned as the program progresses.  As we begin discussions on the issues to be faced in the coming decades, we will proceed as if we were a non-partisan think-tank attempting to develop and provide policy advice to national leaders.  This should be an entertaining exercise where all participants will be afforded the opportunity to provide leadership and guidance.

For more information about this program, please contact John Hemington at jehemington@verizon.net. Mr. Hemington is a retired attorney and IT director with over 40 years’ independent study of economic and political power.

This group reads selections from a wide variety of mystery genres.

Selections for 2014:

January 21, 2014 – Butterfly Clues / Kate Ellison -- engaging mystery starring a teenage girl with obsessive-compulsive disorder layered on top of her almost supernatural loneliness

February 18, 2014 – Standing in Another Man’s Grave / Ian Rankin -- Rankin has moved on since Rebus’ retirement party, beginning a new series starring another Edinburgh cop, Malcolm Fox, but Fox couldn’t be more different from Rebus: a reformed drunk rather than a functioning one; a rule follower rather than a habitual rule breaker; an internal-affairs officer rather than a detective. So who could resist the temptation to put them together in the same novel?

March 18, 2014 - Shadow Account / Stephen Frey – thriller featuring Connor Ashby, a young Wall Street player who uncovers corporate conspiracy and White House intrigue

April 15, 2014 - Bad Day for Sorry / Sophie Littlefield-- introduces Stella Hardesty, a widow and survivor of domestic violence, who owns a sewing shop in a sleepy Missouri town. On the side, Stella solves problems and metes out justice on behalf of battered women,

May 20, 2014 - China Lake / Meg Gardiner -- Evan Delaney learns that not only has her ex- sister-in-law joined a religious cult, but the unstable young mother plans to regain custody of her son and disappear with him into the fold of the fanatical group

June 17, 2014 – Woman in White / Wilkie Colins -- large and sweeping, with skillfully drawn characters, lovely passages and absolutely haunting scenes, a fully formed 19th century mystery novel with all the trimmings

July 15, 2014 – Shanghai Factor / Charles McCarry -- absorbing tale of global skullduggery that leaves the reader guessing at every turn

August 19, 2014 – The Doorbell Rang (Nero Wolfe) / Rex Stout -- Wolfe and his sidekick Archie Goodwin face the malevolent forces of J. Edgar Hoover and his FBI minions. Luckily, Stout's heart and his writing style are more than equal to the challenge.

September 16, 2014 – Case Histories / Kate Atkinson -- Private detective Jackson Brodie finds himself entangled in three distinctly different cases with remarkable connections between them.

October 21, 2014 - Simple / Kathleen George – set in Pittsburgh featuring a fully realized cast of characters, a close-knit group of detectives who deal with shades of gray in crime-solving.

November 18, 2014 - Constant Lovers / Chris Nickson -- July, 1732: On a hot summer morning, Richard Nottingham, Constable of Leeds, is called out when a young woman is found stabbed to death among the ruins of Kirkstall Abbey.

December 16, 2014 – Beautiful Place to Die / Malla Nunn -- darkly romantic crime novel set in 1950s apartheid South Africa, featuring Detective Emmanuel Cooper
