Kevin J. Wilson used to write restaurant reviews on his website phillyrestaurantreviews.com until tragedy struck. His mother passed away in 2011. Then, both his brother and sister passed away during the same week before Christmas in 2013. He was beset by extreme grief and serious depression. He wrote the book Table for One as a self-healing memoir that pays tribute to his family members, and aims to help others who have also experienced great loss. Kevin's book reflects the unbreakable bond between food and family.

Kevin's book Table for One will be available for purchase and signing by the author.

   1:00 PM  -  3:00 PM MEDITATION SATURDAYS  
    Contact: Mary Tobin   610-583-0593   reference@ridleylibrary.org
   

 

 

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.

    Contact: Mary Tobin   6105830593   reference@ridleylibrary.org
   

If your vegetable garden is not doing well or your fruit trees are failing to produce, you are probably not attracting enough pollinators into your yard! Penn State Master Gardener Brenda Troutman will speak about creating a pollinator friendly garden, which is simple, no matter how big or small your garden is. By planting a graden focused on welcoming pollinators (bees, butterflies, moths, hummingbirds, etc.), you can increase the number of pollinators in your area. You can plant in flower pots, window boxes or garden beds, and make a positive impact one plant at a time.

The Ridley Township Public Library is offering a free Basic Meditation Workshop led by Rich Conti from the Schoolhouse Center Meditation Group. In 1 hour 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.

In Dave DeLuca's one-man musical tribute "That's Amore: A Century Of Dean Martin, " Dave presents a glimpse into Dean Martin's muiscal career as well as his success as a comedian and film star, and performs some of his signature songs such as Memories Are Made of This, Everybody Loves Somebody, You're Nobody till Somebody Loves You, Volare, Ain't That a Kick in the Head, and That's Amore. June 7, 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Dean Martin, one of the most popular and enduring American entertainers of the mid-20th century. Dean was nicknamed the King of Cool for his seemingly effortless charisma and self-assuredness, he and Jerry Lewis were partners in the internationally acclaimed comedy team Martin and Lewis; and he was a member of Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack as well as a star in concert and in recordings, motion pictures, and television.

This free concert will be held in Garling Hall. Library programs are generously funded by the Friends of the Ridley Township Library.
