AARP Drivers Safety Class

THIS ONE-DAY CLASS IS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE TAKEN THE FULL COURSE WITHIN THE PAST 3 YEARS
Register at 412-531-1912 ext 209. Space is limited!

For Questions about the class, call the instructor, John Spavaro, at 412-531-5690
$15 for AARP members and $20 for nonmembers (payable at 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.

About the course

The AARP Smart Driver Course, offered by AARP Driver Safety, is the nation�s largest classroom and online driver safety course and is designed especially for drivers age 50 and older. Over 15 million participants have gone through AARP Driver Safety classroom and online courses, taught by more than 4,000 AARP Driver Safety volunteers.

The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers Book Tour

The Good Neighbor, the first full-length biography of Fred Rogers, tells the story of this utterly unique and enduring American icon. Drawing on original interviews, oral histories, and archival documents, Maxwell King traces Rogers’s personal, professional, and artistic life through decades of work, including a surprising decision to walk away from the show to make television for adults, only to return to the neighborhood with increasingly sophisticated episodes, written in collaboration with experts on childhood development. An engaging story, rich in detail, The Good Neighbor is the definitive portrait of a beloved figure, cherished by multiple generations.

Maxwell King is the CEO of the Pittsburgh Foundation. After a career in journalism, including eight years as editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer, King served as president of the Pittsburgh-based Heinz Endowments for nearly a decade.

Mr. King will be reading from and discussing his book and answer questions from the audience.  Copies of The Good Neighbor will be available to purchase.

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.

Between Two Worlds: The Journey of Dorit Sasson

What is it like to be lost between two worlds only to find a home in neither? In this engaging and heartfelt presentation, Dorit Sasson will take you on a journey of what it means to come home when changed by the world and what it means to find a spiritual home when you feel split between two worlds. When Dorit, a native New Yorker, returns to her kibbutz following the second Israel-Lebanese war, she becomes disillusioned and shocked by the degree of economic depression and social change. Forced to make a decision about their economic futures, Sasson takes matters into her own hands and convinces her husband to leave a kibbutz that has abandoned him and a country that has turned its back and emigrate to the United States in search of the American dream. Torn between leaving the land she loved and fought for as an IDF soldier and a brighter future, Sasson welcomed professional freedom that awaited her in the U.S. But when she arrived, the United States was not what it seemed – or perhaps she had changed in ways she didn’t yet realize.

Dorit Sasson is the author of the award-winning Accidental Soldier: A Memoir of Service and Sacrifice in the Israel Defense Forces, which will be available for purchase at the event for $15. Sasson’s writing has appeared in SheKnows.com, The WriterThe Huffington PostWriter’s Digest, the Jewish Book Council and Working Mother. She was a featured pocast guest for the National Association for Memoir Writers, Jennings Wire, Empower Radio and America’s Web Radio, among many others. She is the creator of the online platform and podcast Giving Voice to Your Courage as well as a motivational speaker addressing schools, community centers and business organizations. She coaches authors and writers how to reach the finish line with their books.

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. Vinyasa Yoga consists of  flowing movements synchronized to your breath rhythm.  Modifications and intensification will be offered to meet the needs of beginner students as well as those with a seasoned yoga practice. The flowing sequence will help you build strength, increase flexibility, find mental focus, and teach you how to listen to your body. 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. Each participant should bring a yoga mat, water and any yoga questions you may have.  We love to talk yoga and we look forward to seeing you on your mat soon! 

Instructors: Barbara Garcia-Bernardo, 200-RYT;  Elizabeth Small, 200-RYT, & Brittany Cairns, 200-RYT.
