Virtual Yin Yoga

Monette Shuttleworth from the Himalayan Institute of Pittsburgh leads this monthly program. She will provide background, support tips and answer any questions! We will meet on the 3rd Thursdays of every month. Register below for entire series (cancel registration only if canceling for whole series).  

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 required to get Zoom link. Registration is for the entire series and you need not cancel unless you are cancelling for the whole series.

Drawing Fire: The Editorial Cartoons of Bill Mauldin (Virtual Program)

Todd DePastino will present a talk on cartoonist Bill Mauldin, who shot to fame during World War II with grimly realistic cartoons of the life up front. Lesser known are Mauldin’s second and even third acts as one of America’s premier political cartoonists from the last half of the twentieth century, when he traveled to Korea and Vietnam; Israel and Saudi Arabia; Oxford, Mississippi, and Washington, D.C., covering war and peace, civil rights, and the Great Society. Mauldin especially kept close track of American military power, its use and abuse, and the men and women who served in uniform. Todd will discuss this later career as it is captured in a new book, Drawing Fire: The Editorial Cartoons of Bill Mauldin featuring selections from Chicago’s Pritzker Military Museum & Library, which has more than 4,500 Mauldin cartoons in its collections. Todd edited the volume, which includes illuminating essays and sidebars from Tom Hanks, Tom Brokaw, Jean Schulz and others.

Todd DePastino is founder and executive director of the Veterans Breakfast Club, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to sharing veterans’ stories with the public. Over 30,000 different people have participated in the Veterans Breakfast Club’s programs and activities over the past eleven years. Todd is the author of the award winning BILL MAULDIN: A LIFE UP FRONT (W.W. Norton) and six other books. He has a Ph.D. in American History from Yale University and has taught at several places, including Waynesburg University where he won the Lucas-Hathaway Award for Teaching Excellence. He lives in Pittsburgh with his wife and two daughters.

The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation approximately an hour before the start of the program.  Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices.

Virtual Beer Tasting

This year we cannot offer you a hot bowl and a cold mug, but instead we’re taking the event virtual with our partner Hitchhiker Brewing at 6:30 pm, Saturday, January 30. We will still have fun and support the Mt. Lebanon Public Library despite the pandemic. 

We’ll feature four beers from our chums at Hitchhiker, along a live chat with our panel of wits, wackos and beer connoisseurs. Please join us!

These tickets make great holiday gifts, but we have limited space, so order now!

Reserve your spot below with a $10 donation to the library. You can participate at home by picking up a variety four-pack of 16-ounce cans of craft beer at Hitchhiker’s (just around the corner from the library at 190 Castle Shannon Blvd). The cost of beer will be approximately $26, of which Hitchhiker will donate $10 back to the library.  We will email you in mid-January to let you know when you can pick up your variety pack. 

Registration is being done through Freinds of the Mt. Lebanon Public Library. Please click the link below to register for this event. Registrants will receive an email with the Zoom invitation link the day of the event. Please be certain to include your email in your registration.

10:00 AM - 11:30 PM
Pittsburgh People, Pittsburgh Places Virtual Program

Six Fridays (February 5 - March 12) of great Pittsburgh people and places: neighborhoods, houses of worship, the Pirates. Presented by Abby Mendelson, whose Pittsburgh: A Place in Time and Pittsburgh Prays: Thirty-Six Houses of Worship are both available at Mt. Lebanon Public Library, and whose many articles on the Pirates appeared in a variety of publications. We’ll enjoy lively, informative, interactive discussions of things that made Pittsburgh great. From a fort at the Forks of the Ohio to ethnic enclaves to a rich, diverse landscape, Pittsburgh’s first quarter-millennium has been marked by fierce loyalties, religious fervor, and baseball fever. This six-week Zoom course will focus on the particulars that have made Pittsburgh truly Someplace Special.

Neighborhoods (Weeks 1-2)

Allentown to Allegheny West, Bloomfield to Bon Air, Friendship to Garfield, Hays to Hazelwood, Polish Hill to Troy Hill, and 60-odd more, Pittsburgh’s myriad, diverse neighborhoods define America’s most unique city. We’ll look at the history, development, redevelopment, re-use, and re-purposing of a city that seems never to change – while transforming before our eyes.

Houses of Worship (Weeks 3-4)

From the time of the French, priests traveled with the soldiers. Johnny Appleseed left from the Point to hand out seeds along with pages from the Swedenborgian Bible. While back at home entire communities pinned their hopes and dreams, time and resources creating spectacular houses of worship. Looking strictly at active institutions, we’ll visit Catholics and Episcopalians, Presbyterians and Baptists, Sikhs and Hindus, Jews and Jains, interfaith to Zen, towering cathedrals to tiny chapels, stone and wood to terra cotta, icons and relics and outsized murals.

The Pirates (Weeks 5-6)

Nearly 150 years of professional baseball: we’ll look at the resounding roller-coaster history of the five-time World Champion franchise. Barney Dreyfuss to Bob Nutting. Deacon Phillippe to Honus Wagner and Fred Clarke. Kiki Cuyler to Max Carey and Arky Vaughn. Pie Traynor to Ralph Kiner and the Waner brothers. Roberto Clemente to Willie Stargell and Bill Mazeroski. Barry Bonds to Andrew McCutchen and Josh Bell. Exposition Park to Forbes Field, Three Rivers Stadium to PNC Park. Danny Murtaugh and Chuck Tanner and Clint Hurdle. Joe Brown to Pete Peterson, Neal Huntington to Ben Cherington. Analytics and launch angles and all that impossible new data and a lot, lot more.

These programs will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session. The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program. Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices.

10:00 AM - 11:30 PM
Pittsburgh People, Pittsburgh Places Virtual Program

Six Fridays (February 5 - March 12) of great Pittsburgh people and places: neighborhoods, houses of worship, the Pirates. Presented by Abby Mendelson, whose Pittsburgh: A Place in Time and Pittsburgh Prays: Thirty-Six Houses of Worship are both available at Mt. Lebanon Public Library, and whose many articles on the Pirates appeared in a variety of publications. We’ll enjoy lively, informative, interactive discussions of things that made Pittsburgh great. From a fort at the Forks of the Ohio to ethnic enclaves to a rich, diverse landscape, Pittsburgh’s first quarter-millennium has been marked by fierce loyalties, religious fervor, and baseball fever. This six-week Zoom course will focus on the particulars that have made Pittsburgh truly Someplace Special.

Neighborhoods (Weeks 1-2)

Allentown to Allegheny West, Bloomfield to Bon Air, Friendship to Garfield, Hays to Hazelwood, Polish Hill to Troy Hill, and 60-odd more, Pittsburgh’s myriad, diverse neighborhoods define America’s most unique city. We’ll look at the history, development, redevelopment, re-use, and re-purposing of a city that seems never to change – while transforming before our eyes.

Houses of Worship (Weeks 3-4)

From the time of the French, priests traveled with the soldiers. Johnny Appleseed left from the Point to hand out seeds along with pages from the Swedenborgian Bible. While back at home entire communities pinned their hopes and dreams, time and resources creating spectacular houses of worship. Looking strictly at active institutions, we’ll visit Catholics and Episcopalians, Presbyterians and Baptists, Sikhs and Hindus, Jews and Jains, interfaith to Zen, towering cathedrals to tiny chapels, stone and wood to terra cotta, icons and relics and outsized murals.

The Pirates (Weeks 5-6)

Nearly 150 years of professional baseball: we’ll look at the resounding roller-coaster history of the five-time World Champion franchise. Barney Dreyfuss to Bob Nutting. Deacon Phillippe to Honus Wagner and Fred Clarke. Kiki Cuyler to Max Carey and Arky Vaughn. Pie Traynor to Ralph Kiner and the Waner brothers. Roberto Clemente to Willie Stargell and Bill Mazeroski. Barry Bonds to Andrew McCutchen and Josh Bell. Exposition Park to Forbes Field, Three Rivers Stadium to PNC Park. Danny Murtaugh and Chuck Tanner and Clint Hurdle. Joe Brown to Pete Peterson, Neal Huntington to Ben Cherington. Analytics and launch angles and all that impossible new data and a lot, lot more.

These programs will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session. The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program. Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices.

Virtual Portrait Drawing will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session.  The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program.  Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices. Once Zoom is installed, you will be able to join the virtual Library program. 

Registration is required.  By registering for this event you have agreed to comply with the library's patron behavior policy. All non-compliant participants will be immediately and permanently blocked from further participation.  Because the Librarian facilitating the event will not be able to provide live technical support during the virtual program, it is strongly encouraged you familiarize yourself with Zoom in advance of the program. You can also contact the Library’s Virtual Reference Service for assistance learning Zoom.  You can also join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom. For more in-depth instructions please visit the Zoom support page on joining a meeting.
