misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM HOW TO OVERCOME THE FEAR OF PUBLIC SPEAKING Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Presented by: Paul Manfredi, current member of Toastmasters and a former Dale Carnegie trainer
Question: What is the number one thing that humans fear? If you said “public speaking”, you are right! The National Institute of Mental Health has reported that 75% of people surveyed listed “public speaking” as their number one fear, even higher than the fear of death or spiders. Well, it doesn’t have to be that way! You can overcome the fear of public speaking very easily. Paul Manfredi will provide you with the knowledge to overcome your fears and learn the secrets that some of the greatest speakers in history used. He will help you to learn how easy it is to speak in public without fear.

Have you ever wanted to say something at your workplace staff meeting but didn’t know how to interrupt while others were speaking? Has what you wanted to say come out the wrong way and not anything like you had said it in your head? Would you like to learn the power of motivating, encouraging and inspiring others through your words alone? If you said yes to any of these questions, join us to learn how to improve your public speaking skills and begin using those skills right away!

Presented by: Jayeann Harr, Higher Education Access Partner for PHEAA
In partnership with the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA), the Peters Township Public Library will offer a free FAFSA Completion Session. This program, for college-bound seniors and their parents, offers help in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by providing an overview of each step of the form.

The deadline for submitting the FAFSA to determine eligibility for a need-based Pennsylvania State Grant is May 1 for renewal applicants or first-time applicants entering a degree program or a college transferable program. The deadline for first-time students entering programs of study at community colleges, business, trade or technical schools, and hospital schools of nursing is August 1. Families should be aware of FAFSA filing deadlines for all schools being considered and meet the earliest one. The FAFSA is used to determine if students qualify for almost all forms of need-based financial assistance, including the Pennsylvania State Grant, Federal Pell Grant, many scholarships, work-study programs, many school-based awards, and low-cost federal student loans.

Preregistration is required for this program. Register for this program online, at the library's circulation desk or call 724-941-9430.

Stamp collecting is a hobby that lets you re-live history, travel to the lands of your ancestors, learn more about our country, and capture wild animals! Where else can you meet kings and queens, world leaders, athletes and entertainers without leaving the comfort of your home? Come and learn the basics, expand your collection and meet with others who share your interests. Beginning with the February, 2014 issue, copies of the American Philatelist will be available for study in the 2nd floor periodical area. For more information please call (412) 653-0229.

misc_none 10:30 AM  -  12:00 PM Wii SPORTS FOR ADULTS Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Do you love to golf or play tennis but don't want to deal with the weather? Like to bowl but not keen on lifting a heavy bowling ball? Stay active in the comfort of the Peters Township Public Library. We'll use the large plasma TV and Nintendo Wii in the Teen Reading Room to stay fit. Peters Township teens will walk you through the use of the Wii-mote, a light-weight, motion-detecting controller that you swing like a golf club, baseball bat, bowling ball or tennis racquet. Bring a friend or two and give it at try! No registration required -- just drop in!
