Tuesday September 22, 2020

September is both Love Your Library Month and Library Card Sign-up Month! We will be celebrating all month.

This year your gifts to the Love Your Library fundraiser are critical. Pittsburgh’s Jack Buncher Foundation understands this critical need and has increased its match pool to $200,000. Every library in the Allegheny County Library Association will receive a percentage of that generous grant based on the amount of money they raise in September.  So while your donations are important every month of the year, in September they are worth more!

The closure of the library due to the COVID-19 crisis necessitated the cancellation of our in-person Garden Tour and Beer Garden fundraisers, the closure of the Book Cellar and the cancellation of our September Pop-Up Book Sale.  The loss of this income has affected our partners, the Friends of the Mt. Lebanon Public Library, in a devastating way completely curtailing their fundraising efforts. The Friends estimates up to a 70 percent reduction in their average annual funds raised. We really need your help.  Please celebrate with us the many ways we Love Our Library.  Please make your gift today.    

We are asking patrons to share a picture of themselves holding their favorite book or library card (it does not have to be a Mt. Lebanon card! And please make sure your card number isn’t showing!) on the library’s Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter pages. Out of the entries, one lucky person will be randomly selected to win a Love Your Library basket containing a LYL mask, T-shirt, button, and yard sign plus a Mt. Lebanon Library mug and a $10 gift certificate to the Book Cellar and a few other surprises.

Virtual Lunch and Munch Book Group

In pre-Covid 19 times the Lunch and Munch Book Group meets at Holulihan's in the Galleria and is a great way to get together and talk about great books with food and friendly people. The book group is co-sponsored by the Lions Club. We like to think that we can still have a friendly get together albeit virtually. During the pandemic we will be meeting virtually and all of our books will be available in audio and e-format on Hoopla so that everyone can access them from home. The discussion will be on Zoom. Please register here and a link to the event will be sent to you in the morning prior to the event. Please check you Spam and junk mail if you did not receive an  invitation on the 23rd. 

This month's selection is Shakespeare: the World as Stage by Bill Bryson. It is available on Hoopla: 

ebook copy https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/12348393

eaudio copy https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/11587354

Shakespeare:the World as Stage  Bill Bryson's bestselling biography of William Shakespeare takes the reader on an enthralling tour through Elizabethan England and the eccentricities of Shakespearean scholarship-updated with a new introduction by the author to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. William Shakespeare, the most celebrated poet in the English language, left behind nearly a million words of text, but his biography has long been a thicket of wild supposition arranged around scant facts. With a steady hand and his trademark wit, Bill Bryson sorts through this colorful muddle to reveal the man himself. His Shakespeare is like no one else's-the beneficiary of Bryson's genial nature, his engaging skepticism, and a gift for storytelling unrivaled in our time.

A History of the Pittsburgh Steelers Virtual Program

We’re From the Town with the Great Football Team!: A History of the Pittsburgh Steelers

Presented by Abby Mendelson, who wrote the team’s Official History (now in a revised, fourth edition, available in our libraries), a lively, informative, interactive discussion of the fame, fortune, and foibles of the fabulous – and not-so-fabulous – Pittsburgh Steelers. From chumps to champs, from the team’s lowly origins, to its decades of failure, to its near-miraculous transformation into perennial champion, this three-week Zoom course will use Abby Mendelson’s text as a base and discuss the people, places, and particulars that have branded this great NFL franchise – and given a larger identity to Pittsburgh itself. You can’t miss this one! Register for all three classes on September 11th entry (9/11, 9/18 and 9/25). 

(September 11) The Wonder Years (1933-68)  
The gambler/promoter Art Rooney. Obscure origins. Depression-era survival. Johnny Blood. Bill Dudley. Whizzer White. Merger for World War II. Jock Sutherland. Integration. Ernie Stautner. Bobby Layne. The soiled Sixties.  

(September 18) The Noll Years (1969-91) 
Let us build Three Rivers Stadium and crowd it with the Hall of Fame: Dan Rooney. Chuck Noll. Joe Greene. Terry Bradshaw. Franco Harris. Jack Ham. Jack Lambert. Mike Webster. Lynn Swann & John Stallworth & more & more.  

(September 25) The Cowher-Tomlin Years (1992-2020)  
Post-Partum rebuilding. Super Bowls won, Super Bowls lost. Jerome “The Bus” Bettis. Heinz Field. Bill Cowher. Big Ben Roethlisberger. Troy Polamalu. Hines Ward. Mike Tomlin. Le’Veon Bell. Antonio Brown. Art Rooney II.  

A History of the Pittsburgh Steelers 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.

September is both Love Your Library Month and Library Card Sign-up Month! We will be celebrating all month.

This year your gifts to the Love Your Library fundraiser are critical. Pittsburgh’s Jack Buncher Foundation understands this critical need and has increased its match pool to $200,000. Every library in the Allegheny County Library Association will receive a percentage of that generous grant based on the amount of money they raise in September.  So while your donations are important every month of the year, in September they are worth more!

The closure of the library due to the COVID-19 crisis necessitated the cancellation of our in-person Garden Tour and Beer Garden fundraisers, the closure of the Book Cellar and the cancellation of our September Pop-Up Book Sale.  The loss of this income has affected our partners, the Friends of the Mt. Lebanon Public Library, in a devastating way completely curtailing their fundraising efforts. The Friends estimates up to a 70 percent reduction in their average annual funds raised. We really need your help.  Please celebrate with us the many ways we Love Our Library.  Please make your gift today.    

We are asking patrons to share a picture of themselves holding their favorite book or library card (it does not have to be a Mt. Lebanon card! And please make sure your card number isn’t showing!) on the library’s Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter pages. Out of the entries, one lucky person will be randomly selected to win a Love Your Library basket containing a LYL mask, T-shirt, button, and yard sign plus a Mt. Lebanon Library mug and a $10 gift certificate to the Book Cellar and a few other surprises.

September is both Love Your Library Month and Library Card Sign-up Month! We will be celebrating all month.

This year your gifts to the Love Your Library fundraiser are critical. Pittsburgh’s Jack Buncher Foundation understands this critical need and has increased its match pool to $200,000. Every library in the Allegheny County Library Association will receive a percentage of that generous grant based on the amount of money they raise in September.  So while your donations are important every month of the year, in September they are worth more!

The closure of the library due to the COVID-19 crisis necessitated the cancellation of our in-person Garden Tour and Beer Garden fundraisers, the closure of the Book Cellar and the cancellation of our September Pop-Up Book Sale.  The loss of this income has affected our partners, the Friends of the Mt. Lebanon Public Library, in a devastating way completely curtailing their fundraising efforts. The Friends estimates up to a 70 percent reduction in their average annual funds raised. We really need your help.  Please celebrate with us the many ways we Love Our Library.  Please make your gift today.    

We are asking patrons to share a picture of themselves holding their favorite book or library card (it does not have to be a Mt. Lebanon card! And please make sure your card number isn’t showing!) on the library’s Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter pages. Out of the entries, one lucky person will be randomly selected to win a Love Your Library basket containing a LYL mask, T-shirt, button, and yard sign plus a Mt. Lebanon Library mug and a $10 gift certificate to the Book Cellar and a few other surprises.

The History of the Salem Witch Trials

In time for Halloween, Todd DePastino presents on one of the most infamous events in American history: the Salem Witch Trials. It began on a cold January day in 1692 with two young girls telling fortunes in the kitchen of Rev. Samuel Parris. The girls began barking, twisting, writhing in pain, as if in the grip of an evil force. “These Children were bitten and pinched by invisible agents,” concluded a doctor. A clear case of witchcraft. By the time it was all over, 19 had been hanged, five had died in prison, and 200 others had been accused. Come hear the gruesome details and consider whether this was, in fact, a case “mass hysteria” or something more sinister.

Todd DePastino is founder and executive director of the Veterans Breakfast Club, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to sharing veterans’ stories with the public. Over 30,000 different people have participated in the Veterans Breakfast Club’s programs and activities over the past eleven years. Todd is the author of the award winning BILL MAULDIN: A LIFE UP FRONT (W.W. Norton) and six other books. He has a Ph.D. in American History from Yale University and has taught at several places, including Waynesburg University where he won the Lucas-Hathaway Award for Teaching Excellence. He lives in Pittsburgh with his wife and two daughters.

Presented in partnership with the  Historical Society of Mount Lebanon

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.

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 helpful, but not necessary. 

Virtual Yin Yoga 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.

Virtual Author Visit with Susan Beckham Zurenda

Susan Beckaham Zurenda will join us via Zoom to discuss her award-winng new novel, Bells for Eli.

Selected as a Winter 2020 Okra Pick by the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance, April Book of the Month at LSR, a spring reading pick in Deep South Magazine, a summer reading pick in such publications as the Charleston City Paper, Charlotte Observer, Raleigh News and Observer, and The Augusta Chronicle, Bells for Eli is inspired by a real-life first cousin's tragic childhood accident in the late 1950s. The novel explores how one misstep changes the trajectory of a young boy's life and creates immense conflict in the lives of those around him in a time and place of supposed innocence in the small-town South of the 60s and 70s.

Susan's talk will focus on The Small-Town South in the 60s in Relation to Bells for Eli.

This program 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.
