For the last five years, Mt. Lebanon Library’s Children’s Department has challenged kids and families to create a book-themed diorama using marshmallow Peeps®. We are excited to continue the tradition virtually for its sixth year and with one major change… we are adding an Adult Category! So let your imagination run wild and see what you can create with those fluffy, sugary bundles of gooey goodness.

Here’s what to do: Create the diorama (a shoebox works as a wonderful staging area). Take a well-lit photo encompassing as much of the diorama as possible, and send it to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net by March 31 with the following information:

  • Diorama Title
  • Category (Kids: grade 5 and younger (minimal adult help), Teens: grade 6th-12th, Family: mixed ages or adult help, Adult).
  • Contact info (in case you win)

In early April, after the submission deadline, we will post the images online so the public can vote for the best—or, as we like to call it, “The Peep-le’s Choice Award.” The lucky winners will be announced in April and each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies.

THE RULES  

  1. Each diorama must be based on a book or literary theme. 
  2. Characters should be portrayed by Peeps®.  
  3. Limit 1 entry per contestant/group.  
  4. All entries must be in good taste.  We reserve the right to omit any entries we feel are not appropriate for public viewing. 
  5. Submit entries between March 1-31 to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net
  6. Photos will be posted on our website and the public can vote in early April.
  7. Winners will be announced in April after the voting period has ended; each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies!!

Montgomery Clift: The Lost Actor Part I (Virtual Program)

Discover Golden Age of Hollywood Actor, Montgomery Clift, who was the first to portray on film a more sensitive, vulnerable and rebellious leading man.  Montgomery Clift paved the way for such actors as Marlon Brando and James Dean, yet remains virtually unknown today.  This two part series will take a look at his acting beginnings, his acting style and provide information and clips of his 17 movies.  This is Part 1 of a two part series.  Please register for Part 1 with the intent of attending both sessions.  Part 2 will not have separate registration.

Wendy Whittick is President of the Pittsburgh Classic Movie Club and is passionate about movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood.  She also has a blog called Who is Montgomery Clift? and is currently researching to add blogs about actors Lee Marvin, Van Heflin and Raymond Massey. 

The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation approximately an hour before the start of the program.  Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices. Once Zoom is installed, you will be able to join the virtual Library program.

Registration is required.  By registering for this event you have agreed to comply with the library's patron behavior policy. All non-compliant participants will be immediately and permanently blocked from further participation.  Because the Librarian facilitating the event will not be able to provide live technical support during the virtual program, it is strongly encouraged you familiarize yourself with Zoom in advance of the program. You can also contact the Library’s Virtual Reference Service for assistance learning Zoom.  You can also join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom.

For the last five years, Mt. Lebanon Library’s Children’s Department has challenged kids and families to create a book-themed diorama using marshmallow Peeps®. We are excited to continue the tradition virtually for its sixth year and with one major change… we are adding an Adult Category! So let your imagination run wild and see what you can create with those fluffy, sugary bundles of gooey goodness.

Here’s what to do: Create the diorama (a shoebox works as a wonderful staging area). Take a well-lit photo encompassing as much of the diorama as possible, and send it to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net by March 31 with the following information:

  • Diorama Title
  • Category (Kids: grade 5 and younger (minimal adult help), Teens: grade 6th-12th, Family: mixed ages or adult help, Adult).
  • Contact info (in case you win)

In early April, after the submission deadline, we will post the images online so the public can vote for the best—or, as we like to call it, “The Peep-le’s Choice Award.” The lucky winners will be announced in April and each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies.

THE RULES  

  1. Each diorama must be based on a book or literary theme. 
  2. Characters should be portrayed by Peeps®.  
  3. Limit 1 entry per contestant/group.  
  4. All entries must be in good taste.  We reserve the right to omit any entries we feel are not appropriate for public viewing. 
  5. Submit entries between March 1-31 to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net
  6. Photos will be posted on our website and the public can vote in early April.
  7. Winners will be announced in April after the voting period has ended; each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies!!

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Pittsburgh People, Pittsburgh Places Virtual Program

Six Fridays (February 5 - March 12) of great Pittsburgh people and places: neighborhoods, houses of worship, the Pirates. Presented by Abby Mendelson, whose Pittsburgh: A Place in Time and Pittsburgh Prays: Thirty-Six Houses of Worship are both available at Mt. Lebanon Public Library, and whose many articles on the Pirates appeared in a variety of publications. We’ll enjoy lively, informative, interactive discussions of things that made Pittsburgh great. From a fort at the Forks of the Ohio to ethnic enclaves to a rich, diverse landscape, Pittsburgh’s first quarter-millennium has been marked by fierce loyalties, religious fervor, and baseball fever. This six-week Zoom course will focus on the particulars that have made Pittsburgh truly Someplace Special. NOTE: 2/26 lecture will begin at 10:30 am. 

Neighborhoods (Weeks 1-2)

Allentown to Allegheny West, Bloomfield to Bon Air, Friendship to Garfield, Hays to Hazelwood, Polish Hill to Troy Hill, and 60-odd more, Pittsburgh’s myriad, diverse neighborhoods define America’s most unique city. We’ll look at the history, development, redevelopment, re-use, and re-purposing of a city that seems never to change – while transforming before our eyes.

Houses of Worship (Weeks 3-4)

From the time of the French, priests traveled with the soldiers. Johnny Appleseed left from the Point to hand out seeds along with pages from the Swedenborgian Bible. While back at home entire communities pinned their hopes and dreams, time and resources creating spectacular houses of worship. Looking strictly at active institutions, we’ll visit Catholics and Episcopalians, Presbyterians and Baptists, Sikhs and Hindus, Jews and Jains, interfaith to Zen, towering cathedrals to tiny chapels, stone and wood to terra cotta, icons and relics and outsized murals.

The Pirates (Weeks 5-6)

Nearly 150 years of professional baseball: we’ll look at the resounding roller-coaster history of the five-time World Champion franchise. Barney Dreyfuss to Bob Nutting. Deacon Phillippe to Honus Wagner and Fred Clarke. Kiki Cuyler to Max Carey and Arky Vaughn. Pie Traynor to Ralph Kiner and the Waner brothers. Roberto Clemente to Willie Stargell and Bill Mazeroski. Barry Bonds to Andrew McCutchen and Josh Bell. Exposition Park to Forbes Field, Three Rivers Stadium to PNC Park. Danny Murtaugh and Chuck Tanner and Clint Hurdle. Joe Brown to Pete Peterson, Neal Huntington to Ben Cherington. Analytics and launch angles and all that impossible new data and a lot, lot more.

These programs will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session. The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program. Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices. Once Zoom is installed, you will be able to join the virtual Library program.  

Registration is required. By registering for this event you have agreed to comply with the library's patron behavior policy. All non-compliant participants will be immediately and permanently blocked from further participation.  Because the Librarian facilitating the event will not be able to provide live technical support during the virtual program, it is strongly encouraged you familiarize yourself with Zoom in advance of the program. You can also contact the Library’s Virtual Reference Service for assistance learning Zoom. You can also join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom. For more in-depth instructions please visit the Zoom support page on joining a meeting.

For the last five years, Mt. Lebanon Library’s Children’s Department has challenged kids and families to create a book-themed diorama using marshmallow Peeps®. We are excited to continue the tradition virtually for its sixth year and with one major change… we are adding an Adult Category! So let your imagination run wild and see what you can create with those fluffy, sugary bundles of gooey goodness.

Here’s what to do: Create the diorama (a shoebox works as a wonderful staging area). Take a well-lit photo encompassing as much of the diorama as possible, and send it to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net by March 31 with the following information:

  • Diorama Title
  • Category (Kids: grade 5 and younger (minimal adult help), Teens: grade 6th-12th, Family: mixed ages or adult help, Adult).
  • Contact info (in case you win)

In early April, after the submission deadline, we will post the images online so the public can vote for the best—or, as we like to call it, “The Peep-le’s Choice Award.” The lucky winners will be announced in April and each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies.

THE RULES  

  1. Each diorama must be based on a book or literary theme. 
  2. Characters should be portrayed by Peeps®.  
  3. Limit 1 entry per contestant/group.  
  4. All entries must be in good taste.  We reserve the right to omit any entries we feel are not appropriate for public viewing. 
  5. Submit entries between March 1-31 to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net
  6. Photos will be posted on our website and the public can vote in early April.
  7. Winners will be announced in April after the voting period has ended; each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies!!

Here’s what to do: Create the diorama (a shoebox works as a wonderful staging area). Take a well-lit photo encompassing as much of the diorama as possible, and send it to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net by March 31 with the following information:

  • Diorama Title
  • Category (Kids: grade 5 and younger (minimal adult help), Teens: grade 6th-12th, Family: mixed ages or adult help, Adult).
  • Contact info (in case you win)

In early April, after the submission deadline, we will post the images online so the public can vote for the best—or, as we like to call it, “The Peep-le’s Choice Award.” The lucky winners will be announced in April and each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies.

THE RULES  

  1. Each diorama must be based on a book or literary theme. 
  2. Characters should be portrayed by Peeps®.  
  3. Limit 1 entry per contestant/group.  
  4. All entries must be in good taste.  We reserve the right to omit any entries we feel are not appropriate for public viewing. 
  5. Submit entries between March 1-31 to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net
  6. Photos will be posted on our website and the public can vote in early April.
  7. Winners will be announced in April after the voting period has ended; each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies!!

We are excited to continue the tradition virtually for its sixth year and with one major change… we are adding an Adult Category! So let your imagination run wild and see what you can create with those fluffy, sugary bundles of gooey goodness.

Here’s what to do: Create the diorama (a shoebox works as a wonderful staging area). Take a well-lit photo encompassing as much of the diorama as possible, and send it to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net by March 31 with the following information:

  1. Each diorama must be based on a book or literary theme. 
  2. Characters should be portrayed by Peeps®.

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Pittsburgh People, Pittsburgh Places Virtual Program

Six Fridays (February 5 - March 12) of great Pittsburgh people and places: neighborhoods, houses of worship, the Pirates. Presented by Abby Mendelson, whose Pittsburgh: A Place in Time and Pittsburgh Prays: Thirty-Six Houses of Worship are both available at Mt. Lebanon Public Library, and whose many articles on the Pirates appeared in a variety of publications. We’ll enjoy lively, informative, interactive discussions of things that made Pittsburgh great. From a fort at the Forks of the Ohio to ethnic enclaves to a rich, diverse landscape, Pittsburgh’s first quarter-millennium has been marked by fierce loyalties, religious fervor, and baseball fever. This six-week Zoom course will focus on the particulars that have made Pittsburgh truly Someplace Special. NOTE: 2/26 lecture will begin at 10:30 am. 

Neighborhoods (Weeks 1-2)

Allentown to Allegheny West, Bloomfield to Bon Air, Friendship to Garfield, Hays to Hazelwood, Polish Hill to Troy Hill, and 60-odd more, Pittsburgh’s myriad, diverse neighborhoods define America’s most unique city. We’ll look at the history, development, redevelopment, re-use, and re-purposing of a city that seems never to change – while transforming before our eyes.

Houses of Worship (Weeks 3-4)

From the time of the French, priests traveled with the soldiers. Johnny Appleseed left from the Point to hand out seeds along with pages from the Swedenborgian Bible. While back at home entire communities pinned their hopes and dreams, time and resources creating spectacular houses of worship. Looking strictly at active institutions, we’ll visit Catholics and Episcopalians, Presbyterians and Baptists, Sikhs and Hindus, Jews and Jains, interfaith to Zen, towering cathedrals to tiny chapels, stone and wood to terra cotta, icons and relics and outsized murals.

The Pirates (Weeks 5-6)

Nearly 150 years of professional baseball: we’ll look at the resounding roller-coaster history of the five-time World Champion franchise. Barney Dreyfuss to Bob Nutting. Deacon Phillippe to Honus Wagner and Fred Clarke. Kiki Cuyler to Max Carey and Arky Vaughn. Pie Traynor to Ralph Kiner and the Waner brothers. Roberto Clemente to Willie Stargell and Bill Mazeroski. Barry Bonds to Andrew McCutchen and Josh Bell. Exposition Park to Forbes Field, Three Rivers Stadium to PNC Park. Danny Murtaugh and Chuck Tanner and Clint Hurdle. Joe Brown to Pete Peterson, Neal Huntington to Ben Cherington. Analytics and launch angles and all that impossible new data and a lot, lot more.

These programs will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session. The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program. Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices. Once Zoom is installed, you will be able to join the virtual Library program.  

Registration is required. By registering for this event you have agreed to comply with the library's patron behavior policy. All non-compliant participants will be immediately and permanently blocked from further participation.  Because the Librarian facilitating the event will not be able to provide live technical support during the virtual program, it is strongly encouraged you familiarize yourself with Zoom in advance of the program. You can also contact the Library’s Virtual Reference Service for assistance learning Zoom. You can also join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom. For more in-depth instructions please visit the Zoom support page on joining a meeting.

For the last five years, Mt. Lebanon Library’s Children’s Department has challenged kids and families to create a book-themed diorama using marshmallow Peeps®. We are excited to continue the tradition virtually for its sixth year and with one major change… we are adding an Adult Category! So let your imagination run wild and see what you can create with those fluffy, sugary bundles of gooey goodness.

Here’s what to do: Create the diorama (a shoebox works as a wonderful staging area). Take a well-lit photo encompassing as much of the diorama as possible, and send it to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net by March 31 with the following information:

In early April, after the submission deadline, we will post the images online so the public can vote for the best—or, as we like to call it, “The Peep-le’s Choice Award.” The lucky winners will be announced in April and each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies.

THE RULES  

  1. Each diorama must be based on a book or literary theme. 
  2. Characters should be portrayed by Peeps®.  
  3. Limit 1 entry per contestant/group.  
  4. All entries must be in good taste.  We reserve the right to omit any entries we feel are not appropriate for public viewing.

For the last five years, Mt. Lebanon Library’s Children’s Department has challenged kids and families to create a book-themed diorama using marshmallow Peeps®. We are excited to continue the tradition virtually for its sixth year and with one major change… we are adding an Adult Category! So let your imagination run wild and see what you can create with those fluffy, sugary bundles of gooey goodness.

Here’s what to do: Create the diorama (a shoebox works as a wonderful staging area). Take a well-lit photo encompassing as much of the diorama as possible, and send it to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net by March 31 with the following information:

  • Category (Kids: grade 5 and younger (minimal adult help), Teens: grade 6th-12th, Family: mixed ages or adult help, Adult).
  • Contact info (in case you win)

In early April, after the submission deadline, we will post the images online so the public can vote for the best—or, as we like to call it, “The Peep-le’s Choice Award.” The lucky winners will be announced in April and each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies.

THE RULES  

  1. Each diorama must be based on a book or literary theme. 
  2. Characters should be portrayed by Peeps®.  
  3. Limit 1 entry per contestant/group.  
  4. All entries must be in good taste.  We reserve the right to omit any entries we feel are not appropriate for public viewing.

Virtual Yin Yoga

Monette Shuttleworth from the Himalayan Institute of Pittsburgh leads this monthly program. She will provide background, support tips and answer any questions! We will meet on the 3rd Thursdays of every month. Register below for entire series (cancel registration only if canceling for whole series).  

Yin Yoga is slow-paced and meditative in nature and serves to complement to more active yoga (Yang) styles. Yin Yoga emphasizes passive postures held for several minutes at a time, with muscles in a relaxed state. The connective tissue in and around the muscles and joints is targeted.  Ultimately, Yin Yoga promotes the vitality, hydration, mobility and strength of the connective tissue. It also enhances a balanced flow of energetic circulation leading to a state of calmness, contentment and an overall lasting feeling of relaxation. Please bring a yoga mat, a pillow, and beach towel to support your practice. Registration required to get Zoom link. Registration is for the entire series and you need not cancel unless you are cancelling for the whole series.

For the last five years, Mt. Lebanon Library’s Children’s Department has challenged kids and families to create a book-themed diorama using marshmallow Peeps®. We are excited to continue the tradition virtually for its sixth year and with one major change… we are adding an Adult Category! So let your imagination run wild and see what you can create with those fluffy, sugary bundles of gooey goodness.

Here’s what to do: Create the diorama (a shoebox works as a wonderful staging area). Take a well-lit photo encompassing as much of the diorama as possible, and send it to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net by March 31 with the following information:

  • Diorama Title
  • Category (Kids: grade 5 and younger (minimal adult help), Teens: grade 6th-12th, Family: mixed ages or adult help, Adult).
  • Contact info (in case you win)

In early April, after the submission deadline, we will post the images online so the public can vote for the best—or, as we like to call it, “The Peep-le’s Choice Award.” The lucky winners will be announced in April and each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies.

THE RULES  

  1. Each diorama must be based on a book or literary theme. 
  2. Characters should be portrayed by Peeps®.  
  3. Limit 1 entry per contestant/group.  
  4. All entries must be in good taste.  We reserve the right to omit any entries we feel are not appropriate for public viewing.
