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.

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. 

These programs are co-sponsored by the library and the Historical Society of Mount Lebanon

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

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
   

Retired KOSD History Teacher Edd Hale will discuss the The Great Castle Shannon Bank Robbery.
On May 14, 1917, the sleepy mining hamlet of Castle Shannon erupted in violence as four desperadoes robbed the town’s only bank and found themselves caught in a Wild West-style shootout with the townspeople. Hear how this holdup was planned, executed, and partly foiled as we look at one of Pittsburgh’s most notorious crimes. Based on extensive research of court documents, period newspapers, and even an eyewitness interview, this almost unknown story rivals other well-known tales of the Daltons, Youngers, and James Brothers.

Biography

Edd Hale is a retired middle school history teacher from Keystone Oaks School District. During his 35 years he taught mostly US history covering the period from discovery to the pre-Civil War era. Recently, in his spare time, he has been volunteering as a crewmember on the US Brig Niagara, the Flagship of Pennsylvania based in Erie, doing day sails and extended voyages. His interests also include traveling, metal detecting, bicycling and computers.  He has taught Osher classes on The War of 1812, The Great Castle Shannon Bank Robbery, the Brig Niagara and on using Mac computers.

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.

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.
