Then nearly ninety years later, a genealogist contacted Noretta to identify her as Carl’s next of kin and suggest that “probably they found something.” Through photographs and letters, Noretta learned not only about her own family, but about the American military’s commitment to leave no soldier behind.

About the author: After several years as a journalist, Noretta Willig obtained a master’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh and taught American and English literature. In retirement, she has traveled throughout the U.S. and many countries, including to the battlefield in France where her uncle fought and died.

The Teacher- Drama from Slovakia (103 min)

Czechoslovakia 1983.  On the first day of class the new teacher, Ms. Drazdecova welcomes the students.  When she calls out their name, they respond by saying they’re here, and what their parents do for a living. The teacher is also a high ranking member of the Communist Party.  It soon becomes obvious that the kids grades are tied to how well the parents and students do their “extra” jobs. When some parents decide not to participate, their kids grades fall.  These parents take this up with the principal.  When a meeting is held and everything is brought to the attention of all the parents. Will they vote the teacher out of school, or are they scared of her?

Bill Moore, Pittsburgh Regional Leader of PA Lyme Resource Network, will provide Dare 2B TICKAware education, which will address how to identify and prevent tick bites and diseases, recognize early symptoms of bites, and when to seek help for Lyme disease.

It’s the summer of 1983, Elio and his family are spending time at their villa in Northern Italy.  Elio enjoys a cultured life.  His father teaches Greco-Roman culture, his mother is a translator, and he transcribes and plays music for the cello.  When not doing that he flirts with his friend Marzia.  When Oliver, his father’s intern, arrives to work on his doctorate, things change. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever. Beautifully shot and well acted, this movie has received 4 Oscar nominations.  The film has also won 62 awards and nominated for 134 more.

Led by a master storyteller, students will meet fairy tale heroines who are brave, clever, caring and resilient.  Students will have fun performing tales with their classmates and earn a fairy wand.

 “I was thoroughly impressed!  I liked how each story led into great lessons about bullying, self-image, bravery, etc.  The girls seemed completely engaged and really enjoyed themselves.”  Director, Carnegie Library of McKeesport

 “Being a Savvy Cinderella has given my daughter confidence and fostered a love of literature. “  Parent

Homeschool Meetup - Savvy Cinderella...an amazing storytelling experience!

The Savvy Cinderella Storytellers invite girls in 2nd thru 5th grade to experience an amazing storytelling adventure at the library. The heroes in popular fairy tales kill dragons, rescue princesses and outwit giants. As for the heroines… they wait patiently for a prince, get eaten by wolves, have wicked stepmothers and fall asleep.  They are beautiful, sweet and helpless. Led by a master storyteller, students will meet fairy tale heroines who are brave, clever, caring and resilient.  Students will have fun performing tales with their classmates and earn a fairy wand.

 “I was thoroughly impressed!  I liked how each story led into great lessons about bullying, self-image, bravery, etc.  The girls seemed completely engaged and really enjoyed themselves.”  Director, Carnegie Library of McKeesport

 “Being a Savvy Cinderella has given my daughter confidence and fostered a love of literature. “  Parent
