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.

   6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM From the Shadow of JFK: The Rise of Beatlemania in America  
    Contact: Mary Tobin   610-583-0593   reference@ridleylibrary.org
   

JFK's assassination on November 22, 1963 has often been cited as the cause of the Beatles' sudden popularity in the United States. The logic: Kennedy's assassination made America sad, then the Beatles made it happy again. But, this logic is overly simplistic. The real answer is that Kennedy's life and eath inadvertently primed the nation for the Beatles' arrival and success. This 60 minute mulitmedia presentation will explain how and why. It will be presented by Aaaron Krerowicz, the only professional Beatles scholar in the United States. This is a Civic and Social Literacy Program of the PA Forward Initiative.

Today's Family Fun Show: Puppets Pizzazz

This puppet show is set up as a variety show with over twenty-five professional hand puppets used to perform nine funny songs and humorous skits. In between each act, there is an MC puppet who tells jokes and riddles. Each song or skit is only about two or three minutes long, so it is easy to hold the children’s attention- including toddlers! What makes Puppets Pizzazz puppet shows different is that they take popular music from today’s artists and they put a satirical spin on it.

Family Fun Shows are suitable for ages 3-10, but all are welcome to join the fun.

Shows are free, and registration is not required.

Come practice your reading skills with the help of a furry friend!

For children grades K- 5

This is a wonderful program for students working on their reading skills and gaining confidence in their reading ability. During each session, participants will have the opportunity to read a book of their choice to trained therapy pets. Animals are provided by the non-profit organization Pals for Life, and may include small to large dogs, cats, and rabbits.

Register below beginning June 5.  Due to space limitations, we ask that only students currently reading register for this program.
