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.

Friendsgiving--Food, Friends and Conversation

We are so fortunate that we have such a strong library community. As the year comes to a close, let's spend some meaningful time together. Please join us for a convivial evening gathering to celebrate and converse about what a welcoming community means to us.

As we reflect upon what a welcoming community looks like, we will be guided by words, phrases and questions that our high school students are exploring in their "community pledge" project. This project is inspired by similar efforts in Birmingham, Richmond and the organization "Not In Our Town." Students have been in discussion on how they can create a more tolerant, respectful, inclusive and safe school and community that moves closer to Dr. King's vision of a beloved community. 

Library staff and Mt. Lebanon High School history teacher, Pete DiNardo will be on hand to facilitate the conversation. 

We will be serving seasonal small bites both savory and sweet. Registration is required. For additional information please contact Sharon Bruni at 412.942.0932

Hate Has No Home Here: A Community Conversation

IMPORTANT NOTE: THIS EVENT IS HELD AT THE MT LEBANON HIGH SCHOOL, FINE ARTS THEATER

The Mt. Lebanon High School and The Mt. Lebanon Public Library are partnering with Repair the World Pittsburgh to present a community conversation on the topic of "Hate Has No Home Here: Listening To and Learning From Our Neighbors' Stories." The evening will begin with a panel discussion featuring Julie Mallis from Repair the World, Wasi Mohamed from Forward Cities, Jasiri X from 1HOOD Media and Tereneh Idia from Pittsburgh City Paper. The panel will be moderated by Zack Block from Repair the World. Audience members will be encouraged to ask questions throughout the evening. 

Panelist Bio's:

 

Julie Mallis

Julie Mallis is a multimedia artist, VJ and educator working with digital media, paint, installation, performance, sound and audience interaction. Their work focuses on building community, audio-visual experiences, speaking truth to power, and imagining new landscapes.

Mallis has exhibited, performed and curated work across the United States including at The Andy Warhol Museum, The Carnegie Museum of Art, The Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Coaxial Arts Foundation, PhilaMOCA, MOCA Cleveland, Baby's All Right, The Silent Barn, Fringe Arts and more. Mallis has a joint degree in Studio Art with a concentration in Electronic Time-Based Media and in Cultural Anthropology from Carnegie Mellon University.

Mallis helped develop and carry out artist exhibitions and programming of creative hub BOOM Concepts, from 2014 through 2018 as the founding Creative Director. They were recognized as Creator of the Year by the Pittsburgh Technology Council in 2016, alongside longtime collaborator and BOOM Concepts co-founder DS Kinsel. In 2018, they were commissioned to paint a 1000+ feet mural on the ground of Strawberry Way in Downtown Pittsburgh. It features colorful imagery interlaced within an interactive game asking bold questions about equity and justice to the audience.

In addition to their work as an artist, they have built up and led the Positive Spin youth cycling program over the last decade. Across two different organizations in Pittsburgh (Bike Pittsburgh and MGR Youth Empowerment) they worked tirelessly with Pittsburgh public schools and area charter schools to ensure students in grades 4-12 had enriching and engaging after school and summer activities related to bike safety. Engaging with all people about bike safety became central to their work with Bike Pittsburgh for many years, resulting in them organizing and hosting Bike Pittsburgh’s 6th annual women and non-binary biking forum. This forum sought to add elements of solidarity, community, and understanding amongst women and non-binary people through the lens of biking and transportation accessibility.

These same themes of community, solidarity, personal enrichment, and accessibility run through all endeavors Mallis is involved with. Currently, Mallis is the Program Director at social justice based service organization, Repair The World. Whether at work or in the artist’s studio, their vision is constantly aimed towards how to better the future for themselves and other people, one day at a time.

Talk 

Growing up in a diverse area of Philadelphia, Julie learned the value of diversity of all kinds at an early age. With great grandparents from both sides of the family who fled state sponsored pogroms and persecution across Eastern Europe, and family who remained whose lives were taken due to the Holocaust, Mallis understands the power of resiliency, the importance of taking action for marginalized people, and the amazing worlds that solidarity across differences can build. Socioeconomic divisions matched with tensions across race, ability, citizenship and more can pit groups of people against one another. Instead, Mallis seeks to find unity, bring people away from isolation, and create a more welcoming and inclusive community. As the US was built on slavery, and we've seen these systems repeat and redefine themselves, we know that treating other humans with dignity and respect is the least we can do to foresee a safer and brighter tomorrow. Let us not forget history.

The Civil War - A Naval View
Civil War books, television and movies tend to focus on key land wars - Shilo, Vicksburg, Gettysburg, etc.

The strategies of Civil War Navies and the impact of Great Britain and France tends to be under-emphasized and poorly understood.

-Union offensive naval strategies differed markedly from more defensive Confederate strategies.

-Britain and its Colonies remained technically neutral during the war but recognized the United States and Confederacy as “Belligerent” actors. Within this framework,  the British could supply guns and ammunition to both actors. The building of warships on British territory was forbidden; however, a number of important Confederate Commerce Raiders and Blockade Runners were custom built or purchased and were able to surreptitiously escape and cause serious havoc to Union commerce and the Union Naval Blockade surrounding the Confederate coastline. Military historians have suggested if England and France had become centers of warship building for the Confederacy the Civil War would have been profoundly affected. 

-Confederate ship building efforts in Great Britain were causing very high levels of tension between Britain and the United States. At this time, the Royal Navy was the largest, most powerful naval force in the world.  A Union war with Britain and its Colonies would also have had a profound impact on the War.

-British Canadian Provinces were “hot beds” of Confederate guerrillas and terrorists that attempted to cause havoc on the Union’s northern frontier - including the Great Lakes,  a number of Northern cities, etc.

The Lecture/Discussion Series meets on the second Monday of the month from 10 AM to 1 PM  in Room A.  The Sessions include lecture, discussion and videos. Each session is topic oriented - you may join at any time without being concerned you have missed earlier sessions. If you have a question, please contact rodger.duffy@verizon.net.

Meditation in Motion -- Introduction to Silat
Pak (instructor) Adam Kripke will introduce you to Silat Tuo, an ancient 1500 year old Indonesian martial art practiced for both its self-defense applications as well as its benefits to one's mind, body, and spirit.  Students are guided through a comprehensive system of full-body movement exercises in conjunction with specific breathing, and meditation methodology.  Benefits of the art include improved sensitivity, awareness, mindfulness, stress & anxiety reduction, balance, flexibility, fine motor skills, muscle tone, as well as rehabilitation and injury prevention. 
 
This is an introduction to the art focusing on the health and spiritual benefits and movements instead of the martial art applications.  "Meditation in Motion" is also beneficial for individuals with interests in Dance, Yoga, Aikido, Chi-Gung, Tai Chi, etc; however the movements are drawn from the martial art of Silat Tuo.  (All skill and ability levels are welcome, recommended age 10+).  Second Mondays of each month.

The Steel Bar: Pittsburgh Lawyers and the Making of America

THE STEEL BAR shows how Pittsburgh lawyers played leading roles in the development of national politics, economic growth, and social change.  Weaving together history, law, and powerful story-telling to produce a dramatic account of the people and unexpected forces that shaped our nation’s legal system.

Copies of the book will be available to purchase

Ron Schuler has been the managing partner of the Pittsburgh office of a regional law firm for almost a decade, and has been practicing corporate, M&A, start-up, technology, and securities law for over 30 years. A native Southern Californian and grandson of Mexican immigrants, Schuler is a graduate of Pomona College and Cornell Law School. He was a lead member of the City of Pittsburgh's legal team for the planning and construction of PNC Park, home to Major League Baseball's Pittsburgh Pirates, and was the author of the Forbes Field II Task Force Final Report (1996), the urban planning justification for PNC Park's location. He is also the founding chairman of Pittsburgh’s community-supported jazz radio station, WZUM-FM.
