AARP Drivers Safety Class

THIS IS A TWO-DAY CLASS

For Questions about the class, call the instructor, John Spavaro, at 412-531-5690

Space is limited!
$15 for AARP members and $20 for nonmembers (payable at the first class)

Cars have changed. So have traffic rules, driving conditions and the roads you travel every day, yet some drivers age 50-plus have never looked back since they got their first driver's license.
By taking a driver safety course you'll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today's increasingly challenging driving environment. You'll learn how you can manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing, and reaction time. In addition, you'll learn:

 

  • How to minimize the effects of dangerous blind spots
  • How to maintain the proper following distance behind another car
  • The safest ways to change lanes and make turns at busy intersections
  • Proper use of safety belts, air bags, antilock brakes and new technology found in cars today
  • Ways to monitor your own and others' driving skills and capabilities
  • The effects of medications on driving
  • The importance of eliminating distractions, such as eating, smoking and using a cellphone

After completing the course, you will have a greater appreciation of driving challenges and a better understanding of how to avoid potential collisions and injuring yourself or others.

Mystery Readers Book Club

This group reads selections from a wide variety of mystery genres.

Darktown / Thomas Mullen  

Responding to orders from on high, the Atlanta Police Department is forced to hire its first black officers, including war veterans Lucius Boggs and Tommy Smith.  The newly minted policemen are met with deep hostility by their white peers; they aren’t allowed to arrest white suspects, drive squad cars, or set foot in the police headquarters.  When a woman, last seen in a car driven by a white man turns up dead, Boggs and Smith suspect white cops are behind it.  Their investigation sets them up against a brutal cop, Dunlow, who has long run the neighborhood as his own, and his partner, Rakestraw, a young progressive who may or may not be willing to make allies across color lines.  Among shady moonshiners, duplicitous madams, crooked lawmen, and the constant restrictions of Jim Crow, Boggs and Smith will risk their new jobs, and their lives, while navigating a dangerous world.

Beginners Irish Gaelic

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN TIME

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.

Yoga for You
Note:This class will begin at 1:15 p.m. as the library opens at 1:00 p.m.
Join us for a 60-minute Vinyasa  Yoga class with certified yoga instructors.

Each class will begin with warm up flows, followed by a creative standing/ balancing series, floor work and stretching, and ending with a savasana (a resting pose). We encourage the use of yoga props during practice. If you have a yoga block, a yoga strap or a hand towel you're welcome to bring them to class but they are not required.

Doomed Explorers
Abby Mendelson

Sure, it's there.  But why do men trek off into the wilderness in search of fame, fortune, satisfaction, self?  And what happens when they do -- and everything goes wrong?  As we read about our doomed explorers sailing over open seas, hiking deep into treacherous jungles, clambering on impossible peaks, we will explore the warped ideas, growing terror, and eventual destruction of seemingly sane people who thought they could beat the odds -- and Nature herself.  In a surprise coda, we'll look at Ernest Shackleton, who did everything wrong on his voyage to the South Pole -- and lived!

This course will meet for four weeks total: June 27th, July 18th, July 25th, and August 1st

Registration required. Attendees should plan on attending all sessions of this course.  The online registration sheet will be located on the first session’s calendar entry, but will register attendees for the entire course.

The History of Kennywood

Join David P. Hahner, author of Images of America: Kennywood, to learn about the more than 100 year history of Kennywood amusement park. Founded in 1898 at the terminus of the Monongahela Street Railway trolley line, the park quickly grew into a favorite summertime destination.

In 1987, Kennywood was designated a National Historic Landmark and is known today as America's Finest Traditional Amusement Park.

David P. Hahner Jr. is an avid amusement park and roller coaster enthusiast and has been a lifelong fan of Kennywood. He grew up within two miles of the park and worked summers there while studying at the University of Pittsburgh. He has been an active member of the American Coaster Enthusiasts since 1980 and is a member of the National Amusement Park Historical Association and the Darkride and Funhouse Enthusiasts. Carl O. Hughes is the chairman emeritus of Kennywood Entertainment. In 1990, he became the first living member elected to the Amusement Industry Hall of Fame.
