What's Good for the Birds is Good for your Backyard

Attracting birds to your backyard is good for birds and good for you, too!   Creating a bird-friendly habitat will reduce the time spent mowing the lawn, reduce or eliminate the use of garden pesticides and herbicides, and provide a beautiful living landscape that is healthier for you, your children, your pets and wild birds.   Bob will also talk about the birds we see in our neighborhood everyday and their nesting and feeding habits.  Fun and educational!  Have a question about our fine-feathered friends?   Come ask Bob!

CANCELLED Beginners Irish Gaelic

THIS CLASS HAS BEEN CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

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.

It remained on the New York Times bestseller lists for a combined total of over six years, won an Edgar Award for nonfiction crime writing, and was nominated for the National Book Award.

Erik's books will be available for purchase from City Books at at the lecture and VIP reception. Attendees may also bring their own book.
