That's Amore - A Century of Dean Martin
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

June 7, 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Dean Martin. In his one-man show "That's Amore," Dave DeLuca imitates Martin's relaxed, warbling, crooning voice as he performs signature songs such as Memories Are Made of This, Everybody Loves Somebody, You're Nobody till Somebody Loves You, Sway, Volare, Ain't That a Kick in the Head, and That's Amore.

Martin was one of the most popular and enduring American entertainers of the mid-20th century. He was nicknamed the King of Cool for his seemingly effortless charisma and self-assuredness. He and Jerry Lewis were partners in the internationally acclaimed comedy team Martin and Lewis; and he was a member of Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack as well as a star in concert and in recordings, motion pictures, and television.

This exciting FREE program will be held in the accessible Adult Library. All seats are first come, first served. Arrive early for the best seats!

Registration would be appreciated but is not required.

PAWS for Reading
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

 Image result for paws for reading images

"PAWS for Reading is a program that allows children to read aloud to a therapy dog (or cat, or bunny!) in order to improve reading and communication skills. Children read individually to trained therapy pets (and their handlers) in schools, libraries, or other settings where they can feel comfortable and confident — and have fun! After all, a dog will not correct them or make them feel awkward if they stumble."

MFL is now a participating library in PAWS for Reading program! We have enough spaces per visit for 12 kids/readers. We recommend ages 5+ (or any one who can read aloud).

Dates for PAWS for Reading:

Wednesday, May 3 @ 6:30pm

Saturday, May 6 @ 2pm

Wednesday, June 7 @ 6:30pm

Saturday, June 10 @ 2pm

Readers are limited to 10 minutes of reading aloud to a pet, but can read on their own or color while waiting. Register to reserve a spot for your young reader using his/her name. Click "Add Guest" to add spot(s) for siblings. Click on the dates above to go to that date's registration page.

The 10-minute time slots will be done on a first come, first to sign up on site at the library on the day of the visit.

If you register but do not show-up without notice, you will forfeit any future sign-ups for this program.

Those on our wait list are welcome to come and take any open space that may happen from no-shows.

MEDITATION MONDAYS
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

The Ridley Township Public Library is offering a free Basic Meditation Workshop led by Rich Conti from the Schoolhouse Center Meditation Group. In 1 hour you will learn all you need to practice meditation on your own, at home. 

 Meditation requires no extensive training, preparation or effort. It is simple, easy and anyone can do it. A simple commitment of a few minutes a day can make a real difference in a person’s life by helping to clear the mind and reduce stress. The best way to learn about meditation is for someone to show you what to do and how to do it.

This is a health literacy program of the PA Forward Initiative.

Read-Ercise w/ Toddlers

ENCORE PRESENTATION! Since this story time at 10:30am is so popular, Mr. Jason will be doing a second encore story time immediately after the first one. This way, the crowd won't be so big. So feel free to come to the 10:30am or the 11:30am story time for your toddlers!

In this Toddler story time, kids act out the books as they are being read, making them feel part of the story!  Stories, songs, fingerplays, rhymes, and toys help toddlers learn and love to read!

Tuesdays at 11:30am. Registration is NOT required.

(Children learn best through role modeling. Caregivers are asked to be great role models and be attentive and engaged in the story time. Side conversations can take place during free play. Thanks!)

Let's Discuss Ergonomics: The Ability to Reduce Physical Stress and Increase Productivity
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Small business owners work in a fast paced environment and can find themselves working in nontraditional or less than ideal workspaces. They are too busy taking care of business, often neglecting their own personal health. The content is targeted towards businesses of all sizes. Whether you are a sole proprietor or employ 1-50 workers, businesses can benefit from implementing strategies that monitor and improve workplace setup to reduce risk of injury. Reducing injuries and improving work conditions can increase productivity and decrease business costs. Presented by Kathy Dixon, a physical therapist and co-owner of Action Potential, and SCORE, this interactive presentation will educate participants on the steps to a successful ergonomics process as well as include take home advice for an ergonomic computer workstation setup.

Chester and Delaware County SCORE and Newtown Public Library have teamed up to provide valuable information for small businesses and organizations. SCORE is a non-profit national organization of experienced volunteer business experts providing free professional guidance and information to assist in starting or growing a business by offering free mentoring and regularly scheduled workshops and seminars.
