The Bridge Connection: Card Lessons with Kathy and Lois
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

With international tournaments and thousands of local clubs nationwide, bridge is one of the world’s most popular trick-taking games, as well as one of the most intimidating to learn!

Join the library for a six-week refresher course that will help you to “bridge” the gap and become a star player yourself. Councilmember Kathy DePuy and Lois Green, both advanced players, will teach you the ins and outs of contract bridge –a game of dealings, auctions, declarers and ranks!

What better place to learn this game than the City of Bridges!

How much fun will you have? It’s all in the cards!

*Refreshments will be provided.*

     Oct. 11th, 1943-A British spy plane crashes in Nazi-occupied France. Its pilot and passenger are best friends. One of the girls has a chance at survival. The other has lost the game before it's barely begun.

     When "Verity" is arrested by the Gestapo, she's sure she doesn't stand a chance. As a secret agent captured in enemy territory, she's living a spy's worst nightmare. Her Nazi interrogators give her a simple choice: reveal her 
     mission or face a grisly execution.

     As she intricately weaves her confession, Verity uncovers her past, how she became friends with the pilot Maddie, and why she left Maddie in the wrecked fuselage of their plane. On each new scrap of paper, Verity battles for
     her life, confronting her views on courage, failure and her desperate hope to make it home. But will trading her secrets be enough to save her from the enemy?

Are you thrilled by a good mystery? 

Join the Mystery Book Group! We meet once per month to discuss the hottest whodunnits. This month, we will be discussing: The Fourth Monkey by J.D. Barker.

 

 

For over five years, the Four Monkey Killer has terrorized the residents of Chicago. When his body is found, the police quickly realize he was on his way to deliver one final message, one which proves he has taken another victim who may still be alive.

As the lead investigator on the 4MK task force, Detective Sam Porter knows that even in death, the killer is far from finished. When he discovers a personal diary in the jacket pocket of the body, Porter finds himself caught up in the mind of a psychopath, unraveling a twisted history in hopes of finding one last girl, all while struggling with personal demons of his own.

With only a handful of clues, the elusive killer’s identity remains a mystery. Time is running out as the Four Monkey Killer taunts from beyond the grave in this masterfully written fast-paced thriller.

Your Higher Self
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Modern life can leave you overwhelmed and undernourished, wondering how there isn’t enough time to do what you desire.

One method of pushing past these many contrivances is meditation – a practice which aligns physical well-being with a greater sense of mental and emotional health.

Join the library for a workshop and demonstration of Transmission Meditation, a form of meditation that focuses on group practice and personal development. Instructor Sheila Forester will speak about the history of the exercise and its many benefits to humanity before leading a group demonstration.

Allow yourself a moment to regain what you thought was lost. Take the time to return to yourself.

The Not-So-Secret Garden
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us for a special two-week series with Master Gardener Susan Salis during which she’ll dig up an abundance of facts on the do’s and don’ts of proper gardening and the landscaping life.

Whether you’re an old hat at horticulture or a green green-thumber, now is the time to turn your backyard into a schoolyard of great gardening knowledge!

 

May 7th : "A Guide for the Green Gardener”

This talk will summarize the basic information you need to grow flowers and shrubs with more confidence. As such, it will be most valuable to the beginning gardener, as we will discuss soil conditions, types of plants and their needs, some plant diseases, and common gardening mistakes.

 

May 14th: “The Joy of Gardening with Native Flowers and Shrubs”

Native plants are those found in our region (and throughout the U.S.) before the arrival of European settlers. Learn how native plants contribute to our ecosystem, make your garden distinctive, and provide lower-maintenance beauty.

Painting the Neighborhood: A Visit with Ron Donoughe
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

We welcome artist Ron Donoughe for a colorful talk about his paintings of landscapes and neighborhoods in Western Pennsylvania.

Using the “en plein air” style –painting not in a studio but directly from nature– used by Van Gogh and Monet, his spirited works act as impressionistic recreations of everyday life on a particular day at a particular time.

Come experience your neighborhoods in a new light through the eyes of a gifted artist.

Refreshments will be served.

Bio:

A native of Loretto, Pennsylvania now living in Pittsburgh, Ron Donoughe is best known for his realistic landscape paintings of Western Pennsylvania. He has a B.A. in Art Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and has studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California.

Like many painters he has held a variety of odd jobs – landscaper, gravedigger, chicken catcher, art teacher, museum installer, graphic designer, and college instructor.

He works full time now as a professional artist/painter. His work can be found in many corporate and private collections as well as the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, The Westmoreland Museum of American Art and The University Museum at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

     This month, we are reading The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager.  

Two Truths and a Lie. The girls played it all the time in their cabin at Camp Nightingale. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and first-time camper Emma Davis, the youngest of the group. But the games ended the night Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out of the cabin into the darkness. The last she--or anyone--saw of them was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips.

Now a rising star in the New York art scene, Emma turns her past into paintings--massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches that cover ghostly shapes in white dresses. When the paintings catch the attention of Francesca Harris-White, the wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale, she implores Emma to return to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor. Seeing an opportunity to find out what really happened to her friends all those years ago, Emma agrees.

Familiar faces, unchanged cabins, and the same dark lake haunt Nightingale, even though the camp is opening its doors for the first time since the disappearances. Emma is even assigned to the same cabin she slept in as a teenager, but soon discovers a security camera--the only one on the property--pointed directly at its door. Then cryptic clues that Vivian left behind about the camp's twisted origins begin surfacing. As she digs deeper, Emma finds herself sorting through lies from the past while facing mysterious threats in the present. And the closer she gets to the truth about Camp Nightingale and what really happened to those girls, the more she realizes that closure could come at a deadly price.

Mystery Book Club
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Are you thrilled by a good mystery? 

Join the Mystery Book Group! We meet once per month to discuss the hottest whodunnits. This month, we will be discussing: Lethal White by Robert Galbraith.

 

 

When Billy, a troubled young man, comes to private eye Cormoran Strike’s office to ask for his help investigating a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child, Strike is left deeply unsettled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed, and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story. But before Strike can question him further, Billy bolts from his office in a panic.

Trying to get to the bottom of Billy’s story, Strike and Robin Ellacott—once his assistant, now a partner in the agency—set off on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive inner sanctum within Parliament, and to a beautiful but sinister manor house deep in the countryside.

And during this labyrinthine investigation, Strike’s own life is far from straightforward: his newfound fame as a private eye means he can no longer operate behind the scenes as he once did. Plus, his relationship with his former assistant is more fraught than it ever has been—Robin is now invaluable to Strike in the business, but their personal relationship is much, much trickier than that.

The most epic Robert Galbraith novel yet, Lethal White is both a gripping mystery and a page-turning next instalment in the ongoing story of Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott.

Mystery Book Club

Are you thrilled by a good mystery? 

Join the Mystery Book Group! We meet once per month to discuss the hottest whodunnits. This month, we will be discussing: The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager.

 

Two Truths and a Lie. The girls played it all the time in their cabin at Camp Nightingale. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and first-time camper Emma Davis, the youngest of the group. But the games ended the night Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out of the cabin into the darkness. The last she--or anyone--saw of them was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips.


Now a rising star in the New York art scene, Emma turns her past into paintings--massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches that cover ghostly shapes in white dresses. When the paintings catch the attention of Francesca Harris-White, the wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale, she implores Emma to return to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor. Seeing an opportunity to find out what really happened to her friends all those years ago, Emma agrees.

Familiar faces, unchanged cabins, and the same dark lake haunt Nightingale, even though the camp is opening its doors for the first time since the disappearances. Emma is even assigned to the same cabin she slept in as a teenager, but soon discovers a security camera--the only one on the property--pointed directly at its door. Then cryptic clues that Vivian left behind about the camp's twisted origins begin surfacing. As she digs deeper, Emma finds herself sorting through lies from the past while facing mysterious threats in the present. And the closer she gets to the truth about Camp Nightingale and what really happened to those girls, the more she realizes that closure could come at a deadly price.

Mystery Book Club
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Are you thrilled by a good mystery? 

Join the Mystery Book Group! We meet once per month to discuss the hottest whodunnits. This month, we will be discussing: The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson. 

 

In a tantalizing set-up reminiscent of Patricia Highsmith’s classic Strangers on a Train… On a night flight from London to Boston, Ted Severson meets the stunning and mysterious Lily Kintner. Sharing one too many martinis, the strangers begin to play a game of truth, revealing very intimate details about themselves. Ted talks about his marriage that’s going stale and his wife Miranda, who he’s sure is cheating on him. Ted and his wife were a mismatch from the start—he the rich businessman, she the artistic free spirit—a contrast that once inflamed their passion, but has now become a cliché.

But their game turns a little darker when Ted jokes that he could kill Miranda for what she’s done. Lily, without missing a beat, says calmly, “I’d like to help.” After all, some people are the kind worth killing, like a lying, stinking, cheating spouse. . . .

Back in Boston, Ted and Lily’s twisted bond grows stronger as they begin to plot Miranda's demise. But there are a few things about Lily’s past that she hasn’t shared with Ted, namely her experience in the art and craft of murder, a journey that began in her very precocious youth.

Suddenly these co-conspirators are embroiled in a chilling game of cat-and-mouse, one they both cannot survive . . . with a shrewd and very determined detective on their tail.

Join the Mystery Book Group! We meet once per month to discuss the hottest whodunnits. This month, we will be discussing: Hearts of the Missing by Carol Potenza. 

 

 

When a young woman linked to a list of missing Fire-Sky tribal members commits suicide, Pueblo Police Sergeant Nicky Matthews is assigned to the case. As the investigation unfolds, she uncovers a threat that strikes at the very heart of what it means to be a Fire-Sky Native: victims chosen and murdered because of their genetic makeup. But these deaths are not just about a life taken. In a vengeful twist, the killer ensures the spirits of those targeted will wander forever, lost to their family, their People, and their ancestors. When those closest to Nicky are put in jeopardy, she must be willing to sacrifice everything?her career, her life, even her soul?to save the people she is sworn to protect.

Are you thrilled by a good mystery? 

Join the Mystery Book Group! We meet once per month to discuss the hottest whodunnits. This month, we will be discussing: The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich. 

 

 

Before Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich begins a summer job at a law firm in Louisiana, working to help defend men accused of murder, she thinks her position is clear. The child of two lawyers, she is staunchly anti-death penalty. But the moment convicted murderer Ricky Langley’s face flashes on the screen as she reviews old tapes, the moment she hears him speak of his crimes -- she is overcome with the feeling of wanting him to die. Shocked by her reaction, she digs deeper and deeper into the case. Despite their vastly different circumstances, something in his story is unsettlingly, uncannily familiar.

Crime, even the darkest and most unsayable acts, can happen to any one of us. As Alexandria pores over the facts of the murder, she finds herself thrust into the complicated narrative of Ricky’s childhood. And by examining the details of Ricky’s case, she is forced to face her own story, to unearth long-buried family secrets, and reckon with a past that colors her view of Ricky's crime.

But another surprise awaits: She wasn’t the only one who saw her life in Ricky’s.

An intellectual and emotional thriller that is also a different kind of murder mystery, The Fact of a Body is a book not only about how the story of one crime was constructed -- but about how we grapple with our own personal histories. Along the way it tackles questions about the nature of forgiveness, and if a single narrative can ever really contain something as definitive as the truth. This groundbreaking, heart-stopping work, ten years in the making, shows how the law is more personal than we would like to believe -- and the truth more complicated, and powerful, than we could ever imagine.

Merricat Blackwood lives on the family estate with her sister Constance and her Uncle Julian. Not long ago there were seven Blackwoods—until a fatal dose of arsenic found its way into the sugar bowl one terrible night. Acquitted of the murders, Constance has returned home, where Merricat protects her from the curiosity and hostility of the villagers. Their days pass in happy isolation until cousin Charles appears. Only Merricat can see the danger, and she must act swiftly to keep Constance from his grasp.

Are you thrilled by a good mystery? 

Join the Mystery Book Group! We meet once per month to discuss the hottest whodunnits. This month, we will be discussing: Whose Body? by Dorothy Sayers 

 

 

 

Lord Peter Wimsey spends his days tracking down rare books, and his nights hunting killers. Though the Great War has left his nerves frayed with shellshock, Wimsey continues to be London’s greatest sleuth—and he’s about to encounter his oddest case yet.
 
A strange corpse has appeared in a suburban architect’s bathroom, stark naked save for an incongruous pince-nez. When Wimsey arrives on the scene, he is confronted with a once-in-a-lifetime puzzle. The police suspect that the bathtub’s owner is the murderer, but Wimsey’s investigation quickly reveals that the case is much stranger than anyone could have predicted.
 
Published in 1923, during detective fiction’s Golden Age, Whose Body? introduced a character and a series that would make Dorothy L. Sayers famous. To this day, Lord Peter remains 1 of the genre’s most beloved and brilliant characters.
