"PAWS for Reading is a program that allows children to read aloud to a therapy dog (or cat, or bunny!) in order to improve reading and communication skills. Children read individually to trained therapy pets (and their handlers) in schools, libraries, or other settings where they can feel comfortable and confident — and have fun! After all, a dog will not correct them or make them feel awkward if they stumble."

MFL is now a participating library in PAWS for Reading program! We have enough spaces per visit for 12 kids/readers. We recommend ages 5+ (or any one who can read aloud).

Dates for PAWS for Reading:

Wednesday, June 7 @ 6:30pm

Saturday, June 10 @ 2pm

Readers are limited to 10 minutes of reading aloud to a pet, but can read on their own or color while waiting. Register to reserve a spot for your young reader using his/her name. Click "Add Guest" to add spot(s) for siblings. Click on the dates above to go to that date's registration page.

The 10-minute time slots will be done on a first come, first to sign up on site at the library on the day of the visit.

If you register but do not show-up without notice, you will forfeit any future sign-ups for this program.

Those on our wait list are welcome to come and take any open space that may happen from no-shows.

"PAWS for Reading is a program that allows children to read aloud to a therapy dog (or cat, or bunny!) in order to improve reading and communication skills. Children read individually to trained therapy pets (and their handlers) in schools, libraries, or other settings where they can feel comfortable and confident — and have fun! After all, a dog will not correct them or make them feel awkward if they stumble."

MFL is now a participating library in PAWS for Reading program! We have enough spaces per visit for 12 kids/readers. We recommend ages 5+ (or any one who can read aloud).

Dates for PAWS for Reading:

Wednesday, June 7 @ 6:30pm

Saturday, June 10 @ 2pm

Readers are limited to 10 minutes of reading aloud to a pet, but can read on their own or color while waiting. Register to reserve a spot for your young reader using his/her name. Click "Add Guest" to add spot(s) for siblings. Click on the dates above to go to that date's registration page.

The 10-minute time slots will be done on a first come, first to sign up on site at the library on the day of the visit.

If you register but do not show-up without notice, you will forfeit any future sign-ups for this program.

Those on our wait list are welcome to come and take any open space that may happen from no-shows.

This program is sponsored and made possible by Media Veterinary Hospital!

June's selection is "Pretty Deadly Vol.1" by Kelly Sue DeConnick.

Pretty Deadly is a creator-owned American comic book series by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Spanish artist Emma Ríos, distributed by Image Comics. The story combines elements from western and horror comics, and draws on aspects from mythology and folklore. Pretty Deadly is Deconnick and Ríos' third collaboration, their first being Osborn in 2011 and their second being issues #5 & 6 of the 2012 Captain Marvel series.

The Pretty Deadly creative team was nominated for several Eisner Awards in 2014: DeConnick for Best Writer, Rios for Best Penciller/Inker and Best Cover Artist, and Jordie Bellaire for Best Coloring

The series marries the magical realism of Sandman with the western brutality of Preacher. Death's daughter rides the wind on a horse made of smoke and her face bears the skull marks of her father. Her origin story is a tale of retribution as beautifully lush as it is unflinchingly savage.

    Contact: Mary Tobin   610-583-0593   reference@ridleylibrary.org
   

George Pagano and his teammate Caitlin Miller rowed across the Atlantic Ocean in the 2015 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. They left from La Gomera in the Canary Islands and travelled 3000 miles to Antigua in the Caribbean. They were a self-sustaining boat and received no assistance in their crossing, which took 2 months. They left the Canaries in December 2015 and arrived in Antigua in February of 2016. They set the World Records for fastest and youngest mixed pair to row across the Atlantic. In this presentation, George will show two videos, one at the beginning of the presentation and one at the end. They will give the audience a good idea of his ocean rowing journey and highlight key events (the hurricane, the sea life, rowing at night). There will be time for questions at the end.

Join us in Garling Hall for this exciting evening! This is a Civic and Social Literacy Program of the PA Forward Initiative.

The Ridley Township Public Library is offering a free Basic Meditation Workshop led by Rich Conti from the Schoolhouse Center Meditation Group. Participants are free to stay for the entire 2 hours, or may choose to leave after 1 hour or more. In this workshop,  you will learn all you need to practice meditation on your own, at home. 

 Meditation requires no extensive training, preparation or effort. It is simple, easy and anyone can do it. A simple commitment of a few minutes a day can make a real difference in a person’s life by helping to clear the mind and reduce stress. The best way to learn about meditation is for someone to show you what to do and how to do it.

This is a health literacy program of the PA Forward Initiative.

Stories, Data, and Democracy: Fake News and Twenty-First Century America

The term “fake news” may be new, but the phenomenon has been around for a long time. From 19th century broadsheets to the emergence of cable television and internet, the American media industry has been honing a particular approach to reporting "the new" that puts political, economic, and social ends on par with speaking truthfully. But what exactly is “fake news” and why is it such a big deal? After all, isn’t everyone entitled to express their opinion? Isn't everyone working an angle?

In this talk, Dr. Jim Caccamo will explore the different media practices that we now refer to together as “fake news,” and suggest that if we want to see a world that supports flourishing rather than just winning, we need to find, support, and produce media that expresses the truth.

June 21 at 7:00 pm

Please register in advance. Light refreshments will be provided.

James Caccamo is Associate Professor of Social Ethics and Chair of the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at Saint Joseph’s University (Philadelphia). A former computer programmer, Jim’s work focuses on the moral implications of technology and media practices. He has written on the ethics of branding, technology and liturgy, and the effects of popular music; published academic software; and contributed to the US Council of Catholic Bishops and Orthodox Archdiocese of America’s “Internet and Mobile Safety Guide” (faithandsaftey.org).

Chair Tai Chi -“Tai Chi Chih©” 

Every Thursday - May 25 to June 29th 
at 2:00 pm


Interested participants will be introduced to “Tai Chi Chih©”, a moving meditation. It is easy to learn, and doesn’t require a particular level of physical fitness or coordination.  Consisting of 19 movements and one pose, TCC attracts  the widest audience because even those with physical limitations can participate, performing the movements while seated.  During the six one hour sessions, participants will have the opportunity to learn and practice, basic movements while seated, with an accredited Tai Chi Chih teacher, Sr. Christa Marie Thompson.
The body of high quality medical evidence providing sound arguments for practicing TCC is growing along with TV, newspaper, magazine, and “Web” accounts of the wide ranging health benefits  regular practitioners have gained.  
Studies linking TCC to positive changes in all of the following:
Arthritis                                                COPD
Depression & Anxiety                        Immune System
General Health                                   Increased Energy
Healthy Aging                                     Pain Relief
Healthy Weight                                  Peace and Joy

Come and exprience how this EASY, gentle moving meditation can dissolve tension, reduce chronic pain, improve balance, increase focus and  JOY!

Action Readers!

It's Baby Story Time with a lot of movement!  Infants and their caregivers are encouraged to act out the stories as they are being read.  Stories, fingerplays, songs, dancing, and toys are used to get babies to learn and love reading! 
Registration is NOT required, but participation IS!

Mondays at 10:30am

(Children learn best through role modeling. Caregivers are asked to be great role models and be attentive and engaged in the story time. Side conversations can take place during free play. Thanks!)
