Join us on the 4th Tuesday of each month for this adult book  discussion that is open to all.  A different contemporary adult fiction or non-fiction book will be discussed at each meeting.

May's Selection is:  Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg.    Thirty years after women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States, men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry. This means that women’s voices are still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg examines why women’s progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential.

"Dance Me a Story"

Lead by Darlington Arts dance teacher Lisa Oster

Once a month Ms Lisa Oster comes to the library to get the kids dancing through a story to make them feel a part of it!

"Each class starts in a circle with a warm-up and gross-motor skills around the room. Lisa uses dance terms throughout the class (plié, releve, passé, chasse). She also incorporates a bit of yoga in the warm up. Then each class features a story with movement and accompanying music. Class ends with Freeze dance into a cool down."

Parents stay in the room, but must keep conversations to minimum. Parents may join in if it helps their child but in general the kids participate on their own. Registration is required.

For ages 2-5 (younger/older siblings can join!)

Our Own Stories

In this nontraditional Preschool Story Time, books are read to preschoolers who love to read!  Songs, rhymes, fingerplays, and toys are used to help kids learn and love to read.  At the end of story time the kids are invited to put laminated pieces on a scene board and tell everyone their story that they created.  A great way to encourage imagination, creativity, and story-building!

Registration is NOT required. Tuesdays at 1:30pm

(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!)

Homer, Eakins, Henri, Glackens, Bellows, Hopper, Rockwell, and Wyeth each had their own unique style and selected different subject matter-- but their accomplishments did not always receive widespread critical acclaim.

"Dance Me a Story"

Lead by Darlington Arts dance teacher Lisa Oster

Once a month Ms Lisa Oster comes to the library to get the kids dancing through a story to make them feel a part of it!

"Each class starts in a circle with a warm-up and gross-motor skills around the room. Lisa uses dance terms throughout the class (plié, releve, passé, chasse). She also incorporates a bit of yoga in the warm up. Then each class features a story with movement and accompanying music. Class ends with Freeze dance into a cool down."

Parents stay in the room, but must keep conversations to minimum. Parents may join in if it helps their child but in general the kids participate on their own. Registration is required.

For ages 2-5 (younger/older siblings can join!)

    Location: Middletown Free Library

Divine Philly:  Philadelphia’s Key Role in Christian America

Presentation by Local Author Dave Emmi

 Friday, June 12th @ 2 PM

Join us at the Middletown Free Library as local author Dave Emmi discusses Philadelphia’s Key Role in Christian America before the Papel visit during the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia later this year in September.
 
Did you know?
1) By the mid-19th century the Philadelphia Diocese was the largest Catholic Diocese in the US.
2) The Catholic diocesan school system was created in Philadelphia.
3) Dozens were killed or injured in the Nativist Riots of Philadelphia in 1844 when Catholic churches and homes were burned down amidst rising religious tensions.
4) The first canonized American saint was Bishop John Neumann of Philadelphia.
5) Catholicism is currently the largest religious denomination in the US, comprising roughly one third of the populous.
 
These topics, as well as many compelling others, are discussed in Dave Emmi’s, “Divine Philly: Philadelphia’s Vital Role in Christian America.” This historical narrative skirts religious theology in favor of investigating the seedlings, and contentious expansion, of Catholicism in a once dominant, (and often violent), Protestant America. The recent closing of St. John Neumann’s favorite church, and the difficult plight of Irish coal miners, are used as story telling devices in this gripping saga. Visit www.daveemmi.com for more information.

This free film series is presented by Radnor Memorial Library, Radnor Conservancy, Radnor Bird Town, and Radnor Township’s EAC.  Four award-winning wildlife films are on loan from the 2013 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival and will be screened on Wednesday evenings in the summer.

Captured for the first time ever in spectacular three dimensions, this series showcases in microscopic detail the captivating interactions between plants and insects, spectacular time-lapse footage of flowers bursting into bloom and the mystifying realm of snapping carnivorous plants and enigmatic orchids. David sheds new light on the astonishing lives of plants, as we enter a world of unparalleled color, texture and dimension. Atlantic Productions.
