Oh Deer! : Landscaping in Deer Country
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Is there anything we can do to discourage deer from feasting on our plantings? In this program, we’ll discover the facts about these “wild neighbors” and learn to use that knowledge to our advantage when planning our landscaping. Plants highlighted are those recommended as deer resistant in Western Pennsylvania by Master Gardeners.

Learn about the use of deer repellents and ask and have your gardening questions answered by Penn State Master Gardener Coordinator, Philip Bauerle of the Penn State Extension.

This community education presentation is brought to you by the Whitehall Wildlife Committee and the Whitehall Public Library.

Presented by Penn State Extension.

Shimmies, Shivers, and Vibrations: A Revealing Look at Belly Dance
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

As part of our focus on Women's History Month, the library presents an ancient dance form that highlights the female form and brings with it the cultural flavors of countries like Egypt, Lebanon, and Turkey. Described in the 1800s as la danse du ventre, this “dance of the middle” is a celebration of female expression driven by fluid movement, curving patterns, and alluring dress.

Amethyst, a local dancer and belly dance expert, will lead an introduction to the dance’s history —rooted in folk art and village parties— and perform moves from a variety of styles of the form.

Join us for what will certainly be a moving afternoon dedicated to women, dance, and the power of the hips!

Designed as an interactive presentation open to all, you may choose to participate or simply observe from your seat.

Suggested donation: $1.00 collected at door

Immigration Journeys:  Old and New
Digital Storytelling and Community Conversations

Join us to Celebrate Our Cultural Mosaic

Many of us – our parents, grandparents or great grandparents – came from another country – perhaps from Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, or Latin America. Or maybe you are a refugee from one of these areas.

Ten of your neighbors, both long-time residents and newcomers, have created their own short video accounts about immigration to the Pittsburgh area.  Share these experiences with them and others in our community.  Join in a discussion about what it was like a generation ago and what it is like now to become uprooted and start a new life.

Enjoy food from different cultures, music and dance, and learn more about the mosaic of cultures that makes up our community. 

Two celebrations will be held in the South Hills.

Supper Club: Gaucho!
5:15 PM - 8:30 PM

The food scene in Pittsburgh has exploded over the last decade and it's easy to be left behind without even a menu to hold on to.

We're going to change that with this seasonal program series designed to whet the appetite and engage the senses.

Our second destination serves wood-fired delights with an Argentine flare in the historic Strip District. Named as a favorite restaurant in many city and state magazines, and even awarded a top ten spot by Yelp! for its list of Best Restaurants in the United States, Gaucho is where locals can experience the best of cutting-edge cuisine by way of traditional methods and flavors. We will enjoy a four-course tasting menu in their semi-private party room, the Bodega.

So join us for a deluxe evening of first-class food and conversation!

We will depart from the library at 5:15 PM for a dinner reservation at 6:00 PM.

One bus. One restaurant. One great time.

Cost: $80.00 / person to be paid at the front desk

Unconditional Surrender: An Intimate Chat with Ulysses S. Grant
7:00 PM

Step into history for a face-to-face chat with Ulysses S. Grant, the 18th President of the United States and “the face of the 50”! Portrayed by Kenneth Serfass, a professional living historian, the General has agreed to “grant” us this coveted sit-down to get the low-down on his life, battles, and great loves.

Get ready to surrender your attention to the man who once confessed to knowing only two tunes — “one of them is Yankee Doodle and the other one isn’t”— for an evening dedicated to the details of American history and the General who made them.

Refreshments will be served.

Image result for kenneth serfass

Bio: Gunnery Sgt. Kenneth J. Serfass was born in Bethlehem, PA on June 18th, 1966. He is a retired US Marine, with a 20 year career as a Marine bandsman, and his final tour was with the First Marine Division Band during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 -2004.

Ken has created a niche as a full time professional living historian portraying his lifelong personal hero, Ulysses S. Grant. He has been appearing publically as General Grant since 2009, presenting the general or president in walking tours, horseback rides, rail road excursion rides, and at various living history and roundtable events on a regular basis across most of the northeast and in Southern California and for several national parks as well.

Block Party
10:00 AM

Children of all ages are invited to our Block Party!

Whitehall Public Library received materials from The Office of Commonwealth Libraries to implement a series of Block Play Parties for young children and their adults through the Cruise into Kindergarten program grant. Blocks offer children an almost infinite variety of opportunities to express themselves, from constructing simple designs to veritable engineering feats of bridge building. 

In addition to the wooden blocks the library received a variety of figurines, animals and other props for the children to use with the blocks.  Kids are only limited by their imaginations!  The libraries also received professional resources about block play and children’s development for parents. For young readers, the library has books about building, tools and more.

Block Parties will be held on the following dates:
• Saturday, February 25 at 10:00 am
• Saturday, March 25 at 10:00 am
• Saturday, April 22 at 10:00 am

Earth Day / Special Presentation BEES!
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Buzz into the library for a family-friendly program about honeybees!

Did you know that 75% of our country’s crops rely on bees and other natural pollinators? Yet native bee populations are struggling due to habitat disruption, monocultural and genetically engineered food provisions, and   invasive pathogens and parasites.

 Burgh Bees aims to introduce beekeeping to Pittsburghers in order to promote bees and beekeeping and in so doing, stewardship of the environment. Guests of all ages are welcome to attend and learn how to raise, keep, and protect honeybees - and sample some delicious honey while you're at it!

 "Bee" with us for this special Earth Day event!   Registration recommended (but walk-ins welcome).

Humane Harrassment: Living with Nuisance Wildlife
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Learn about the animals that are usually considered “nuisance wildlife” and the best ways in which to live in harmony with them. We will discuss methods to get the animals to leave your house or neighborhood on their own accord, without having to resort to trapping or other lethal methods of removal. Using these “Humane Harassment” techniques is often much safer for everyone involved, and include many procedures for avoiding conflict situations with animals!

This community education presentation is brought to you by the Whitehall Wildlife Committee and the Whitehall Public Library.

Please be sure to register for this free program.

 

Presenter: Alexis Fitzgerald is the Manager of Humane and Wildlife Education for the Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center (ARL). After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Ecology and Evolution, Alexis has been working in the environmental education field. Alexis started volunteering at the ARL Wildlife Center in 2011 before being hired in the Education Department. She visits schools, libraries and other community organizations to educate individuals about the animals in the world around us.

ARL+WPHS

Both the Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center and the Western PA Humane Society have rich histories of caring for animals of all kinds in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas. Since the organizations merged at the beginning of this year, we are able to care for even more animals, domestic and wild. We now have two open door shelters and one wildlife center. The Shelters take in well over 20,000 animals annually with the goal of placing those animals into good homes. We offer adoption services, pet training and even a low cost clinic for the community. Our Wildlife Center cares for native PA wildlife with the goal of releasing healthy animals back into the wild. The Wildlife Center treats over 3,500 animals annually.

Join us for a very inky entry in our “Just Ask” series during which local professionals answer all kinds of questions from the audience. There is no lecture, no PowerPoint, and no planned presentation. Just a special guest ready to tackle anything you’d like to ask!

In the spirit of playful investigation, be our guest for an informal talk with a real wordsmith of a woman, journalist Diana Nelson Jones of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette!

Post image for Just Ask the Journalist: A Talk about Walkabout (with Treats!)

 

What is your average day like? How many times have you seen All the Presidents Men?

Do you ever get “mad as hell” and can’t take it anymore? What are your thoughts on cable news?

How do you relieve stress? What’s it like to have a deadline?

Who would play you in a TV movie? Do you prefer ink or e-device? Does one of your co-workers have a nickname like Ace or Smithy?

 

She’ll answer all of your questions –and more!– while we curb our appetite with ice-cold snacks worth “5 W’s and an H”!

Get ready for an afternoon of answering the big questions and getting the big scoops –of ice cream!

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!

 

Week 1: Alien Invaders: Recognizing and Controlling Invasive Plant Species

Week 2: Gardening with Native Plants: Are They Worth It?

Week 3: Attracting Delightful Butterflies to Your Garden

Bio: Susan Salis graduated from the Phipps Master Gardener Program which requires several months of intensive training in all aspects of horticulture, plus ongoing continuing education. She is also a docent at Phipps Conservatory. 

Although she has been gardening for nearly 20 years, Susan still considers herself a student of horticulture and good gardening practices. For her, a garden is always a work in progress, which is why gardening is such a joy.

Bio:  Paul A. Taylor graduated from the University of Dayton with a degree in Geological Engineering in 1959 and was accepted into Officers Candidate School (OCS) in Newport, Rhode Island.  He later attended Naval Aviation Orientation School in Jacksonville, Florida, before entering Air Intelligence School in Virginia. 

As an intelligence officer, Mr. Taylor qualified for flight status as a Naval Aviation Observer (NAO) and served as a tactical coordinator.  During service in the Atlantic Fleet, his task group participated in several incidents including: the blockade of the Dominican Republic after the assassination of its dictator, Rafael Trujillo; the astronaut recoveries of Alan Shepard, Gus Grissom, and John Glenn; and the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962.

He was awarded the National Defense Medal, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal (Cuba), and the Navy Expeditionary Medal (Cuba) for service during the missile crisis.
