10:00 AM - 12:45 PM
Beginners Irish Gaelic

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

This 3-part series, presented by Mt.

An Evening with Brad Felver

Brad Felver is a fiction writer, essayist, and teacher of writing. His fiction has appeared widely in magazines such as One Story, Colorado Review, and Midwestern Gothic. His essays have appeared in New England Review, Hunger Mountain, BULL: Men’s Fiction, and Fiction Writer’s Review among other places. His awards include a Pushcart Prize Special Mention, the Zone 3 Fiction Prize, and most recently the 2018 Drue Heinz Literature Prize. He lives with his wife and kids in northern Ohio.

Brad will be at the library to discuss his first short story collection, The Dogs of Detroit, which won the 2018 Drue Heinz Literature Prize.

The 14 stories of The Dogs of Detroit each focus on grief and its many strange permutations. This grief alternately devolves into violence, silence, solitude, and utter isolation. In some cases, grief drives the stories as a strong, reactionary force, and yet in other stories, that grief evolves quietly over long stretches of time. Many of the stories also use grief as a prism to explore the beguiling bonds within families. The stories span a variety of geographies, both urban and rural, often considering collisions between the two.

Brad's book can be purchased from City Books at the event.

Verdi and His Music

With instructor Cleon Cornes.

Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901), probably the most popular operatic composer, brough Italian Opera to its peak, saving and reanimating this beloved musical genre.

Verdi's music combines lyricism with power, helping it to reach its well-deserved popularity. He composed 28 operas, full of soulful melodies and character-driven plots that dealt with love, loss, and tragedy. He focused on very direct, realistic emotional expression and lifelike characters singing their hearts out.

This six-week class will review the loves, losses, and tragedies in Verdi's own life. The audience will enjoy video and audio excerpts from his operas and other music..

Seed Share

Sit down with us to share vegetable seeds – and your stories about adventures in gardening!  We are dividing up 30 types of vegetable seeds, from kale to tomatoes – and much much more! 

This year we have incorporated more global seeds to our list.

We have also included several plants that are known for their cancer preventative and healing properties such as the Spicy Mustard Greens that contains isothiocyanates that are known to neutralize cancer causing chemicals and Chamomile for making stress reducing tea.

Registration and prepayment is required at the library front desk. The library accepts cash, checks and credit cards.   Cost: $10 per seed share.  (Couples may register together and pay the $10 fee for 1 share of seeds) Early registration is recommended as space is limited.

Energy efficiency may not be as trendy as solar panels, but it is necessary to tackle climate change – please come and learn what you can do to reduce your home’s energy use. Bring your energy bills and your home size and get a mini-energy evaluation to see how your home compares to other homes. 

Buildings contribute 45% of carbon dioxide emissions globally, and about half of that comes from the residential sector. Here in Pittsburgh region, a typical single-family home is responsible for as much as 15 tons of CO2 emissions each year. Conservation Consultants, Inc., a local non-profit, will provide information on the range of possible home upgrades that improve home’s performance, as well as how cost effective they are. You will be surprised to learn that the window replacement is far down the list, compared to other measures. Building Performance Institute-recommended audit techniques, like blower door and infrared imaging, will be explained.  Tips on changes you can make around your home to make it more comfortable and help lower your bills will also be discussed. 

The mission of Conservation Consultants, Inc., a local non-profit, is to help families to create healthier homes as they get energy smarter. www.getenergysmarter.org. No registration required.

Verdi and His Music

With instructor Cleon Cornes.

Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901), probably the most popular operatic composer, brough Italian Opera to its peak, saving and reanimating this beloved musical genre.

Verdi's music combines lyricism with power, helping it to reach its well-deserved popularity. He composed 28 operas, full of soulful melodies and character-driven plots that dealt with love, loss, and tragedy. He focused on very direct, realistic emotional expression and lifelike characters singing their hearts out.

This six-week class will review the loves, losses, and tragedies in Verdi's own life. The audience will enjoy video and audio excerpts from his operas and other music..

Beginners Irish Gaelic

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

Berlin on the Eve of World War

The Mt. Lebanon Public Library Speaker Series will be hosting best-selling non-fiction writer, Erik Larson on Monday, April 29th. In anticipation of this event the Historical Society of Mt. Lebanon will partner with the Mt. Lebanon Public Library to provide a series of talks relating to some of the historical time periods of his works.

Dr. Burstin will provide a picture of life in Berlin on the eve of World War II. What was life like for those who saw their rights eroded while others felt elation in the rise of patriotism? Conversations will allow for a connection to its impact on our city during the 1930’s.

Barbara Burstin is an adjunct professor in the history departments at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University.  She earned a Bachelor’s degree in economics from Vassar College, a Master’s in history education from Columbia University and a Doctorate in history from the University of Pittsburgh.
 
A respected Holocaust and Jewish studies scholar, her works include “After the Holocaust: The Migration of Polish Jews and Christians to Pittsburgh” published in 1989, she has written three books on the history of the Pittsburgh Jewish community: Steel City Jews 1840-1915, Steel City Jews in Prosperity, Depression and War, 1915- 1950, and Jewish Pittsburgh, part of the Images of America series. She produced a documentary film “A Jewish Legacy: Pittsburgh,” that she wrote and produced in 2001.
