Pittsburgh's must-see holiday spectacular is back and more magical than ever.

The most magical time of the year arrives with the opening of Winter Flower Show and Light Garden. Built around a "Holiday Magic!" theme, this year's dazzling displays will feature heartwarming vignettes including an extravagant winter feast, Santa's workshop and a sparkling New Year's Eve celebration. The magic is brought to life in signature Phipps fashion with artful LED lights, detailed props, decorated fir and pine trees, amaryllis, orchids and more than 2,000 poinsettias. From majestic, illuminated trees to whimsically oversized ornaments, toys, books and more, the show will delight the senses and kindle the spirit of the season in guests of every age. Adding to the festive atmosphere, in our Outdoor and Discovery Gardens, our biggest, best Winter Light Garden yet will sparkle with luminous orbs, trees, fountains, and a tunnel of lights designed to imitate a twinkling winter sky.

New Features

In addition to all-new indoor displays, the show has been updated with the following exciting new features:

  • illuminated gift-wrapped boxes in the Winter Light Garden; 
  • special pinpoint and "firefly" lighting in our Tropical Forest Conservatory;
  • new "aurora borealis" architectural lighting in the Sunken Garden, mirroring the lighting in our Serpentine Room;
  • and much more.

Irish Gaelic Club

Beginners’ Irish

Will meet in Study Room 1.

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  first hour of 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.

The second half of this course will be focused on advanced topics.

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.

CANCELLED--Irish Gaelic Club

MOVED TO SATURDAY, DECEMBER 16 IN STUDY ROOM 1.

Beginners’ Irish

 

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  first hour of 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.

The second half of this course will be focused on advanced topics.

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.
