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

 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. Join us to learn how to meditate!

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

   6:15 PM  -  7:45 PM TEXTILES IN ANCIENT EGYPT  
    Contact: Mary Tobin   6105830593   reference@ridleylibrary.org
   

Dr.Stephen Phillips from the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaelogy and Anthropology returns to Ridley Library to entertain and enlighten us on another aspect of ancient Egypt - their textile production. The ancient Egyptians were renowned master weavers, even in their own time. Large quantities of linen were required for things we can still relate to, such as clothing and household uses, as well as for things we associate with ancient Egypt specifically, such as cloth for use as mummy wrappings. Archaeological evidence for ancient Egyptian textile production exists in the form of artifacts as well as in tomb paintings and carved reliefs. What did the ancient Egyptians use to make cloth, how did they make it, and how was it used? This fascinating lecture brings ancient Egyptian textiles to life, including images from 3,500 year-old tombs, of royal mummy wrappings (and unwrapping), the world’s oldest dresses, as well as some of the world’s oldest tunics (the “t-shirt of ancient times”).
