Allegheny Fly Tyers is a local group made up of Volunteers (6 to 12 people) that teach individuals how to tie trout flies. Allegheny Fly Tyers is proud and committed to teaching its students about all the fundamentals of fly tying.  By teaching fundamentals, the sky becomes the limit as to what you as a tier will be able to tie!! Classes run for six consecutive weeks. The beginning classes gives the individual all the necessary techniques to tie proven trout patterns that work on every stream. The Intermediate class expands on the earlier techniques learned and explores more complicated tying techniques. This is to enhance the students capabilities in the world of fly tying. We have been teaching these classes for almost 6 years now and have seen more than 300 people participate in our fly tying classes.

Second tie at the Library: The Woolybugger streamer. A very simple streamer pattern to tie, the Woolybugger is a fly that has many different aquatic organisms that it could imitate at any given time and is a fly that you should always have in your fly box!

Another fly that can be fished anywhere and produce catches from the pond caught bluegill to an 36" Alaskan Rainbow!

Please call  the library 412-531-1912 to register for this class. Space is limited, early registration is highly recommended.

We will be providing four unique programs in our Living Through Grief series that are designed to provide practical strategies to aid the bereaved in their grieving process.  

David Klineburger, a clinical mental health counselor will introduce and present what is known as Worden's (J. William Worden) Four Tasks of Grieving (accepting the reality of the loss; work through the pain and grief; adjusting to life without the loved-one; and discover  enduring connections with the deceased while committing to and embarking on a new life). This evidence-based approach has been most helpful supporting the bereaved, both on an individual basis and on the group level.

 

David Klineburger is a clinical mental health counselor with Meier Clinics, located in Mt. Lebanon.  He works primarily with adults and couples who struggle with a variety of mood and anxiety challenges across the spectrum.  He also provided couples’ counseling, coaching for interpersonal relationship skills and life-skills, anger management counseling, and grief/loss counseling and workshops.

He holds a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Waynesburg University, and a master’s degree in the humanities from Villanova University.  He is professionally certified with the National Board for Certified Counselors.  Before a career as a mental health counselor, He was a pastor and a chaplain, providing pastoral counseling and spiritual direction in different venues.

Speaker:  Dr. Mark Windham, University of Tennessee, Distinguished Professor in Ornamental Plant Pathology

Rose Rosette Disease is the most serious current threat to the world’s roses.  This virus has the potential to destroy the rose industry and drastically reduce the use of roses in landscape and garden design.  Currently there is no cure for this disease in roses and the spread of the disease has widening to all parts of the United States.  The American Rose Society continues to support research for better understanding of the etiology of rose rosette and to develop strategies to control the spread of this viral disease.  Dr. Windham is a member of the ARS Rose Rosette Advisory Panel and researcher studying this disease and world authority on the pathology of this infestation.   

This program will be valuable for Master Gardeners, professional landscapers, and anyone interested in growing roses. Program co-sponsored by the Pittsburgh Rose Society and the Mt. Lebanon Public Library.

The approaching holidays and colder months can be especially challenging for those who have recently faced or are currently facing the loss of a loved one. We will be providing four unique programs in our Living Through Grief series that are designed to provide practical strategies to aid the bereaved in their grieving process.  

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things that can happen to a person. Even though we know that people die, when we lose someone close it can be very hard to move forward. Dr. Stahl will present emerging research on grief after bereavement and will lead a discussion with attendees about simple steps, including lifestyle choices that may serve to promote health and well-being after bereavement. Attendees will be invited to be screened for a bereavement program called WELL, promoting Widowed Elders’ Lifestyle after Loss, after the presentation if they wish to participate.

Dr. Stahl earned her PhD in Life-span Developmental Psychology in 2011 from West Virginia University. She then completed postdoctoral training in Geriatric Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh prior to her appointment to the Department of Psychiatry faculty in 2014. Her research focuses on promoting mental and physical health among older adults who are grieving the loss of a spouse or partner. Her research program is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health.

  • Discover the formula for thriving, based on published, academic research.

  • Learn how to take back the reigns to your life through simple, proven tools for managing your thoughts, shifting your emotions and inspiring your actions.

As they grow and get comfortable with the environment, their creations will become increasingly complex and rich. Throughout the process, they will be learning essential coding skills such as logic, problem solving, debugging, procedures, variables, and flow control—preparing them to take-on any new programming language.For kids in 6-8th grade.

Allegheny Fly Tyers is a local group made up of Volunteers (6 to 12 people) that teach individuals how to tie trout flies. Allegheny Fly Tyers is proud and committed to teaching its students about all the fundamentals of fly tying.  By teaching fundamentals, the sky becomes the limit as to what you as a tier will be able to tie!! Classes run for six consecutive weeks. The beginning classes gives the individual all the necessary techniques to tie proven trout patterns that work on every stream. The Intermediate class expands on the earlier techniques learned and explores more complicated tying techniques. This is to enhance the students capabilities in the world of fly tying. We have been teaching these classes for almost 6 years now and have seen more than 300 people participate in our fly tying classes.

Third tie at the Library: The Griffths Gnat. A very simple dry fly that was produced by one of the founding members of Trout Unlimited to catch trout when they are feeding on the surface. The fly has the ability to catch bluegill by the hundreds in the local farm pond to a mighty big brown trout found in the local trout waters where you fish.

Please call the library 412-531-1912 to register for this class. Space is limited and early registration is highly recommended.

Join Nick Flower, Psy.D., clinical psychologist, for a lively and informative discussion of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and its treatment. “What if I harm someone on impulse? What if I contaminate my whole family and they get really sick? What if I’m gay and don’t know it?” These are just some of the obsessions that nearly 4.5 million people struggle with on a daily basis all across the United States. Dr. Flower will discuss what OCD is and how it is most effectively treated with an opportunity for discussion and questions from the audience. 

Dr. Flower is a clinical psychologist who specializes in the treatment of OCD and related anxiety disorders with exposure and response prevention therapy (ERP). In 2007, he finished his doctoral degree at Xavier University and started a small private practice in Pittsburgh in 2011. In 2012 Dr. Flower moved to Nashville, TN, for three years where he worked in private practice and also served as the clinical director for a Tennessee prison for inmates with severe mental illness.

While in Nashville, Dr. Flower started to focus his clinical devotion to the treatment of OCD and related anxiety disorders with exposure therapy. He received specialized training put on by the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) about how to most effectively use Exposure and Response Prevention therapy (ERP) for OCD, hoarding disorder, phobias, and eating disorders. He also provides clinical supervision to psychology doctoral students at the University of Louisville and Spalding University, helping them to learn and implement ERP with clients who suffer from OCD. He recently ran a support group for violent and sexual obsessions at the annual IOCDF convention in July.

The majority of us will experience health, work, relationship, or financial challenges during our lives which will likely decrease our happiness, well-being. Since we need to be prepared for these challenges, it’s helpful to have a plan for times when we’ll be down and for times in our everyday lives when we simply want to feel better.  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 Super Better gaming strategy as it relates to the PERMA-V positive psychology model. Students will participate in discussion, small group and individual learning activities to learn, practice new Super Better gaming techniques. At the end of this 90 minute workshop, each student will have completed the Super Better workbook which provides him/her with a game plan for feeling better when the challenging times come and specific happiness boosters for his/her everyday life.

Allegheny Fly Tyers is a local group made up of Volunteers (6 to 12 people) that teach individuals how to tie trout flies. Allegheny Fly Tyers is proud and committed to teaching its students about all the fundamentals of fly tying. By teaching fundamentals, the sky becomes the limit as to what you as a tier will be able to tie!! Classes run for six consecutive weeks. The beginning classes gives the individual all the necessary techniques to tie proven trout patterns that work on every stream. The Intermediate class expands on the earlier techniques learned and explores more complicated tying techniques. This is to enhance the students capabilities in the world of fly tying. We have been teaching these classes for almost 6 years now and have seen more than 300 people participate in our fly tying classes.

First tie at the Library: The Pheasant Tail Nymph. Originated on the chalk streams of the British Isles this very simple but effective nymph pattern has proven itself throughout the fly fishing world as one of the most effective nymph patterns that has ever been tied and fished!  A must have in anyone's fly box!!

THE QUIET AMERICAN,  2002

Based on Graham Greene’s novel, THE QUIET AMERICAN, this movie gives insight into the beginning of America’s involvement in Vietnam. Set in Saigon in 1952, the story is told through the eyes of world-weary journalist, Thomas Fowler. His comfortable life is altered by the arrival of young aid worker, Alden Pyle. Part love story and part cautionary tale, THE QUIET AMERICAN captures the early events of the conflict in Vietnam. Michael Caine was nominated for an Academy Award for his moving portrayal of Thomas Fowler.

We have been teaching these classes for almost 6 years now and have seen more than 300 people participate in our fly tying classes.

Third tie at the Library: The Griffths Gnat. A very simple dry fly that was produce by one of the founding members of Trout Unlimited to catch trout when they are feeding on the surface.  The fly has the ability to catch bluegill by the hundreds in the local farm pond to a mighty big brown trout found in the local trout waters where you fish.

The support of friends enables us to move through our lives with confidence. When her husband died, friends were there for Chris, giving her the confidence to create a new and fulfilling life when she needed it. They showed her the way we can cultivate bonds and support one another. Now she wants to share the valuable lesson she learned:

Good friends renew, restore and revitalize the spirit.

In this thought-provoking presentation we will:

  1. Identify the five friendships
  2. Embrace the unique gifts each type of friendship brings to our lives
  3. Discuss how to sustain these friendships

Join Beth Geisler, author of 100 Things to do in Pittsburgh Before You Die" for a special presentation on the best of Pittsburgh for the holidays and winter season. 

Smart and friendly, Pittsburgh promises a mighty welcome. Entertainment options abound with the city’s own ballet, opera, symphony, and visiting Broadway series. For the younger crowd, Pittsburgh is Kidsburgh (dinosaurs and so much more!). And locals and visitors alike enjoy a seemingly endless array of arts and cultural attractions—many bequeathed by the industrialists who defined the city’s past.

Recognized for its renaissance, the area has a certain old world charm that mixes harmoniously with the emerging high-tech culture. It’s also one of the country’s greenest regions in more than one way, offering premier outdoor recreation as well as a record number of sustainable buildings, many of which house attractions that are open to the public. The surrounding vista stuns, with urban views that provide both chills and romance. And distinct neighborhoods reveal their own unique character, offering enticements in all corners. There’s much to do in the city’s heart or within a short drive. And 100 Things to Do in Pittsburgh BeforeY ou Die offers a guide to visitors who want to make the most of their time in this hip and historic destination.

Beth's presentation will discuss the best of Pittsburgh with a focus on what is special about the holidays in the 'burgh as well as fun activities to get you out of the house this winter!

Beth will be bringing copies of her book to sell and sign after the program. This book makes a perfect Christmas present for any Pittsburgh Lover.

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.
