MEDITATION SATURDAY
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

 

 

The Ridley Township Public Library is offering a free Basic Meditation Workshop led by Rich Conti from the Schoolhouse Center Meditation Group.  

 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. Join us to learn how to meditate!

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

Author Talk: Danielle Shapiro
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Join us to hear from Danielle Shapiro, author of John Vassos: Industrial Design for Modern Life

Vassos conceived a vision for the look of new technologies still with us today. A founder of the Industrial Designers Society of America, he was instrumental in the development of a self-conscious industrial design profession during the late 1920s and 1930s and into the postwar period. There is a strong Philadelphia connection to Vassos' work, particularly his interior design work for the art deco, classic WCAU building at 1622 Chestnut Street. When it opened in 1931, it was a state of the art radio studio and one of the tallest buildings in Center City. It now houses the Art Institute of Philadelphia. 

This free program will take place in the library's lower level Chadwick Auditorium. Please register for this event at the library's front desk. Copies of her book will be available for purchase.

Main Ingredients for an Effective Website
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

This seminar, presented by SCORE and entrepreneur Ky Toure', provides an essential reality check for anyone who's looking to build a professional website. It encourages you to examine the goals of your website before you begin the building process. It is mainly aimed at small business owners, though it can be of use to anyone who is striving to build their first website or update an existing site in a professional manner. The guide is given in an easy to understand manner, so it will be simple to follow even if you don't have much prior knowledge of website building. It is meant as a helpful walk-through for anyone who wishes to have a professional looking website without having to hire a website designer. The word professional is emphasized because the focus of the guide is business websites. While you may use it to build your first personal page or a blog, the aim is to primarily help entrepreneurs. As such, the guide will focus on what's needed to build credibility among a company's target market.

Chester and Delaware County SCORE and Newtown Public Library have teamed up to provide valuable information for small businesses and organizations.

Russian Impressionism
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The Friends of the Marple Library will present  a program on Russian Impressionism on Saturday, October 28 at 2:00 pm. Our guest speaker, Dr. Jim Curtis, will discuss and explain why the international art world is bedazzled by the new wave of Russian artists in Moscow and St Petersburg who are reshaping the very popular style of Impressionism into what is now known as Russian Impressionism.  Seen through the eyes of Russian artists the standard perspective on Impressionism is now more beautiful, beguiling and visually intriguing.  Dr. Curtis will tell us why and how this Russian movement is worth watching and enjoying during his colorful 50  minute PowerPoint presentation. A reception will immediately follow the program so all may meet and discuss the new impressionistic movement with Dr. Curtis.  This program is free and open to the public.
