Peeps Diorama Contest : [ MTLEB ]

For the last five years, Mt. Lebanon Library’s Children’s Department has challenged kids and families to create a book-themed diorama using marshmallow Peeps®. We are excited to continue the tradition virtually for its sixth year and with one major change… we are adding an Adult Category! So let your imagination run wild and see what you can create with those fluffy, sugary bundles of gooey goodness.

Here’s what to do: Create the diorama (a shoebox works as a wonderful staging area). Take a well-lit photo encompassing as much of the diorama as possible, and send it to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net by March 31 with the following information:

  • Diorama Title
  • Category (Kids: grade 5 and younger (minimal adult help), Teens: grade 6th-12th, Family: mixed ages or adult help, Adult).
  • Contact info (in case you win)

In early April, after the submission deadline, we will post the images online so the public can vote for the best—or, as we like to call it, “The Peep-le’s Choice Award.” The lucky winners will be announced in April and each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies.

THE RULES  

  1. Each diorama must be based on a book or literary theme. 
  2. Characters should be portrayed by Peeps®.  
  3. Limit 1 entry per contestant/group.  
  4. All entries must be in good taste.  We reserve the right to omit any entries we feel are not appropriate for public viewing. 
  5. Submit entries between March 1-31 to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net
  6. Photos will be posted on our website and the public can vote in early April.
  7. Winners will be announced in April after the voting period has ended; each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies!!

Read Between the Wines : [ ROBINSON ]

Come to the Deer Creek Winery located in the Mall at Robinson for our Read Between the Wines -  The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes by Ruth Hogan.

Masha is drowning. Once a spirited, independent woman with a rebellious streak, her life has been forever changed by a tragic event twelve years ago. Unable to let go of her grief, she finds solace in the silent company of the souls of her local Victorian cemetery and at the town's lido, where she seeks refuge underwater - safe from the noise and the pain.
But a chance encounter with two extraordinary women - the fabulous and wise Kitty Muriel, a convent girl-turned-magician's wife-turned-seventy-something-roller-disco-fanatic, and the mysterious Sally Red Shoes, a bag lady with a prodigious voice - opens up a new world of possibilities, and the chance to start living again.
Until the fateful day when the past comes roaring back...

THURSDAY, MARCH 4TH @ 7PM - ON ZOOM...

Would You, Could You Plant a Tree? With Dr. Seuss's Lorax (Step into  Reading): Tarpley, Todd: 9780593306161: Amazon.com: Books

 

Join us and our dog friends on ZOOM. The main objective of this program is to provide a relaxed and “dog-friendly” atmosphere, which allows kids to practice the skill of reading. By looking at a dog and reading to the dog, all threats of being judged are put aside. The child relaxes, waves to the attentive dog, and focuses on the reading. Reading improves because the child is practicing the skill of reading, building self-esteem, and associating reading with something pleasant.

Who or what will join us for St. Patrick's day???

*Everyone registered will receive a paperback book (I have 6 of each book...so it will be first come basis)

Peeps Diorama Contest : [ MTLEB ]

For the last five years, Mt. Lebanon Library’s Children’s Department has challenged kids and families to create a book-themed diorama using marshmallow Peeps®. We are excited to continue the tradition virtually for its sixth year and with one major change… we are adding an Adult Category! So let your imagination run wild and see what you can create with those fluffy, sugary bundles of gooey goodness.

Here’s what to do: Create the diorama (a shoebox works as a wonderful staging area). Take a well-lit photo encompassing as much of the diorama as possible, and send it to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net by March 31 with the following information:

  • Diorama Title
  • Category (Kids: grade 5 and younger (minimal adult help), Teens: grade 6th-12th, Family: mixed ages or adult help, Adult).
  • Contact info (in case you win)

In early April, after the submission deadline, we will post the images online so the public can vote for the best—or, as we like to call it, “The Peep-le’s Choice Award.” The lucky winners will be announced in April and each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies.

THE RULES  

  1. Each diorama must be based on a book or literary theme. 
  2. Characters should be portrayed by Peeps®.  
  3. Limit 1 entry per contestant/group.  
  4. All entries must be in good taste.  We reserve the right to omit any entries we feel are not appropriate for public viewing. 
  5. Submit entries between March 1-31 to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net
  6. Photos will be posted on our website and the public can vote in early April.

Pittsburgh People, Pittsburgh Places Virtual Program : [ MTLEB ]

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. NOTE: 2/26 lecture will begin at 10:30 am. 

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. 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.

LOCATION: Online!

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. NOTE: 2/26 lecture will begin at 10:30 am.

Peeps Diorama Contest : [ MTLEB ]

For the last five years, Mt. Lebanon Library’s Children’s Department has challenged kids and families to create a book-themed diorama using marshmallow Peeps®. We are excited to continue the tradition virtually for its sixth year and with one major change… we are adding an Adult Category! So let your imagination run wild and see what you can create with those fluffy, sugary bundles of gooey goodness.

Here’s what to do: Create the diorama (a shoebox works as a wonderful staging area). Take a well-lit photo encompassing as much of the diorama as possible, and send it to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net by March 31 with the following information:

  • Diorama Title
  • Category (Kids: grade 5 and younger (minimal adult help), Teens: grade 6th-12th, Family: mixed ages or adult help, Adult).
  • Contact info (in case you win)

In early April, after the submission deadline, we will post the images online so the public can vote for the best—or, as we like to call it, “The Peep-le’s Choice Award.” The lucky winners will be announced in April and each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies.

THE RULES  

  1. Each diorama must be based on a book or literary theme. 
  2. Characters should be portrayed by Peeps®.  
  3. Limit 1 entry per contestant/group.  
  4. All entries must be in good taste.  We reserve the right to omit any entries we feel are not appropriate for public viewing. 
  5. Submit entries between March 1-31 to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net
  6. Photos will be posted on our website and the public can vote in early April.
  7. Winners will be announced in April after the voting period has ended; each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies!!

Peeps Diorama Contest : [ MTLEB ]

For the last five years, Mt. Lebanon Library’s Children’s Department has challenged kids and families to create a book-themed diorama using marshmallow Peeps®. We are excited to continue the tradition virtually for its sixth year and with one major change… we are adding an Adult Category! So let your imagination run wild and see what you can create with those fluffy, sugary bundles of gooey goodness.

Here’s what to do: Create the diorama (a shoebox works as a wonderful staging area). Take a well-lit photo encompassing as much of the diorama as possible, and send it to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net by March 31 with the following information:

  • Diorama Title
  • Category (Kids: grade 5 and younger (minimal adult help), Teens: grade 6th-12th, Family: mixed ages or adult help, Adult).
  • Contact info (in case you win)

In early April, after the submission deadline, we will post the images online so the public can vote for the best—or, as we like to call it, “The Peep-le’s Choice Award.” The lucky winners will be announced in April and each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies.

THE RULES  

  1. Each diorama must be based on a book or literary theme. 
  2. Characters should be portrayed by Peeps®.  
  3. Limit 1 entry per contestant/group.  
  4. All entries must be in good taste.  We reserve the right to omit any entries we feel are not appropriate for public viewing. 
  5. Submit entries between March 1-31 to childrenslibrary@einetwork.net
  6. Photos will be posted on our website and the public can vote in early April.
  7. Winners will be announced in April after the voting period has ended; each winner will receive a fabulous basket of goodies!!
