Teens and adults are welcome to join us for this evening presentation by former Eastern State Penitentiary tour guide Scott Oldham. Mr. Oldham will show photographs and provide a detailed talk about

this infamous Philadelphia institution. It was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cell blocks and empty guard towers.

Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals, including “Slick Willie” Sutton and “Scarface” Al Capone.

Dr. Steve Phillips, from the University of Pennsylvania's Museum of Archeaology and Anthropology, returns to the library with another fascinating lecture. This time, Dr. Steve will explore the science

behind ancient Egyptians mummies. He'll discuss how the mummification process developed through time, how mummies were actually made, and will explore why they hold such a fascination in popular

culture. A number of illustrations in this talk are images of actual ancient Egyptian mummies, many collected as part of Dr. Phillips's own research in Egypt.

Image result for civil war medicine

Professor Jeffrey LaMonica, from Delaware County Community College, presents a lecture on Civil War Medicine. Death from wounds

and disease was an additional burden of the war that took a toll on the hearts, minds, and bodies of all Americans, but it also sped up the

progression of medicine and influenced practices the army and medical practitioners still use today. While the Union certainly had the advantage

of better medical supplies and manpower, both sides  attempted to combat illness and improve medical care for their soldiers during the war.

Many of America’s modern medical accomplishments have their roots in the legacy of America’s defining war.

Linda Lawson will present this Consumer Reports workshop on following a sustainable diet. A healthy diet is better for the environment,                        

and therefore more sustainable. A sustainable diet contributes to food and nutrition security and to a healthy life for present and future

generations. Linda will provide tips on buying organic food. She'll present ideas on how to get organic food cheaper, and will bring in some examples.  There will be a giveaway, too!
