Virtual Author Visit with Douglas Cooper

Douglas Cooper will join us via Zoom to discuss Knowing and Seeing: Fifty Years of Drawing Cities.

Over four weeks (June 26, July 10, 17 and 24), Abby Mendelson will lead us through and examination of various aspects of myth, including Myth Across Cultures: Joseph Campbell, The Hero With a Thousand Faces; Myth of North America: Richard Erdoes & Alfonso Ortiz, Native American Myths; Myth as American Novel: William Faulkner, The Bear, and Andrew Krivak, The Bear; and Myth in the Key of Life: Bruce Chatwin, Songlines. Instructions for accessing the readings will be emailed to registrants.

Join in the fun with our first ever Virtual Garden Tour!

We are so disappointed that we had to postpone our 30th Annual Mt. Lebanon Public Library Garden Tour until July 2021. Knowing how much we would all miss seeing the beautiful Mt. Lebanon gardens, our garden tour committee immediately came up with a plan to hold a Virtual Garden Tour that we could all enjoy together.  

Here’s how it works:

Each week from now until our original Garden Tour day - July 12, 2020, we will ask for photos of your gardens in several categories.  These photos will be included in a slide show that will run on our website on July 12 all day long.  We will also be creating a few shorter slide shows highlighting each category that will run in the weeks leading up to Tour day.  Send us your photos along with a short description to our special Virtual Garden Tour email address: gardenphotos30@gmail.com

Submit an image and you'll be entered into a drawing to win a free ticket to the 2021 garden tour. Five chances to win!!

We came up with some weekly categories for photos for you to consider:

May 4 - 10 - spring flowers

May 11 - 17 - garden spots for birds

May 18 - 24 - water features and hardscapes

May 25 - 31 - pets in the garden

June 1 -7 - your favorite spot in your garden

June 8 - 14 - fairy gardens and other magical garden spots

June 15 - 21 - vegetable gardens

June 22 - 28 - before and after photos of your garden

The Stories of King Arthur Virtual Program

Join Alan Irvine for an examination of the stories of King Arthur and his Knights of The Round Table. We will progress from the origins of the stories in early folk tales through Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur in the first class. The second class will focus on the outline of the cycle of stories and key themes within them, and the third class will be a "who's who" of the story - key names, people and places. As befits these tales and legends, the fourth class will be a storytelling performance fit for the Court of King Arthur. 

July 14, 21, 28 and August 4. Registration required. Register on the July 14th entry for all programs. Those interested ONLY in the storytelling performance can register on August 4th entry. The storytelling performance on August 4th is appropriate for all ages.

Alan Irvine, PhD, is a local storyteller, director, and playwright. He has been a life-long fan of the King Arthur tales, performing stories of Arthur and his knights for many years. His recording of Arthurian tales, "The Red Dragon," was an Honorable Mention for the Storytelling World's Best Storytelling Recordings award in 2007. Alan also writes and directs numerous Shakespeare related shows for Brawling Bard Theater, which is now creating original productions designed for the Zoom platform.

The Stories of King Arthur 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.

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!

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.

Myths for Our Times; Myths for All Times Virtual Program

Myth arises from many sources. From the teleological -- attempting to explain the world -- to the psychological -- attempting to resolve conflicts, understand the unconscious, mediate impossible dichotomies -- to the imaginative world of dreams, myth reshapes reality in fascinating, non-linear ways. And while we may live our lives by rules and regimens, we have never outgrown our need for -- and interest in -- myth.

Over four weeks (June 26, July 10, 17 and 24), Abby Mendelson will lead us through and examination of various aspects of myth, including Myth Across Cultures: Joseph Campbell, The Hero With a Thousand Faces; Myth of North America: Richard Erdoes & Alfonso Ortiz, Native American Myths; Myth as American Novel: William Faulkner, The Bear, and Andrew Krivak, The Bear; and Myth in the Key of Life: Bruce Chatwin, Songlines. Instructions for accessing the readings will be emailed to registrants. 

NOTE: No program on July 3rd. Register on June 26th entry for the series. 

Virtual Myth for Our Times 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.

Virtual Evening Book Group

Join us via Zoom for a virtual book discussion of Writers & Lovers by Lily King. You can download the eBook on Hoopla.

Blindsided by her mother's sudden death, and wrecked by a recent love affair, Casey Peabody has arrived in Massachusetts in the summer of 1997 without a plan. Her mail consists of wedding invitations and final notices from debt collectors. A former child golf prodigy, she now waits tables in Harvard Square and rents a tiny, moldy room at the side of a garage where she works on the novel she's been writing for six years. At thirty-one, Casey is still clutching onto something nearly all her old friends have let go of: the determination to live a creative life. When she falls for two very different men at the same time, her world fractures even more. Casey's fight to fulfill her creative ambitions and balance the conflicting demands of art and life is challenged in ways that push her to the brink.

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.  Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices.

The Stories of King Arthur Virtual Program

Join Alan Irvine for an examination of the stories of King Arthur and his Knights of The Round Table. We will progress from the origins of the stories in early folk tales through Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur in the first class. The second class will focus on the outline of the cycle of stories and key themes within them, and the third class will be a "who's who" of the story - key names, people and places. As befits these tales and legends, the fourth class will be a storytelling performance fit for the Court of King Arthur. 

July 14, 21, 28 and August 4. Registration required. Register on the July 14th entry for all programs. Those interested ONLY in the storytelling performance can register on August 4th entry. The storytelling performance on August 4th is appropriate for all ages.

Alan Irvine, PhD, is a local storyteller, director, and playwright. He has been a life-long fan of the King Arthur tales, performing stories of Arthur and his knights for many years. His recording of Arthurian tales, "The Red Dragon," was an Honorable Mention for the Storytelling World's Best Storytelling Recordings award in 2007. Alan also writes and directs numerous Shakespeare related shows for Brawling Bard Theater, which is now creating original productions designed for the Zoom platform.

The Stories of King Arthur 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.
