Stay at Home and Read Gala

THE FRIENDS OF THE MT. LEBANON PUBLIC LIBRARY INVITE YOU TO CELEBRATE THE LOVE OF READING WITH OUR 2nd ANNUAL STAY AT HOME AND READ GALA!! 

Just because we are in quarantine, doesn’t mean we can’t support our library while celebrating reading together!! So, select a book… or several…make a donation, and have a reading gala in your home!  

Here is how it works:  

When:  On Saturday, April 10, Friends of the Mt. Lebanon Public Library will host its 2nd Annual Stay at Home and Read Gala. Instead of buying a ticket and going to an event, all you need to do is make a donation and enjoy your favorite book. Your donation will support the incredible programs, services, and materials at Mt. Lebanon Public Library.  

Where: In the comfort of your own home, your own backyard, your own bed, or in your very own blanket fort. 

How:  Just read! Read by yourself, with your whole family, share a book over Zoom with your grandchildren, even read to your dog or cat. Read for an hour or two or hunker down for a marathon all-day read!  

Donate: Click on the donate button on this page to be directed to the Friends of the Mt. Lebanon Public Library donation page. Make a donation any time leading up to or on April 10. Donations start at just $5 to participate.  

Share: On April 10, share a picture of yourself reading on the library’s Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram page (or email it to jacksonma@einetwork.net and we’ll post it for you). Camera shy? A picture of the book you're reading is fine!  

Why: Since we can’t actually come together in person for a fundraising gala, let’s do it through social media! Think of this as the library's very own Seen Page! And don't forget to use hashtag #StayAtHomeAndRead.

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Virtual Author Visit with Madeleine Henry--Speaker Series Event

Madeleine Henry will join us via Zoom to discuss her new novel, The Love Proof

Sophie Jones is a physics prodigy on track to unlock the secrets of the universe. But when she meets Jake Kristopher during their first week at Yale they instantly feel a deep connection, as if they’ve known each other before. Quickly, they become a couple. Slowly, their love lures Sophie away from school.

When a shocking development forces Sophie into a new reality, she returns to physics to make sense of her world. She grapples with life’s big questions, including how to cope with unexpected change and loss. Inspired by her connection with Jake, Sophie throws herself into her studies, determined to prove that true loves belong together in all realities.

Spanning decades, The Love Proof is an unusual love story about lasting connection, time, and intuition. It explores the course that perfect love can take between imperfect people, and urges us to listen to our hearts rather than our heads.

Order a signed copy of The Love Proof from Riverstone Books here: https://shop.riverstonebookstore.com/book/9781982142964

Madeleine Henry is the author of two acclaimed novels, The Love Proof and Breathe In, Cash Out. She has appeared on NBC, WABC, The Jenny McCarthy Show, and Inspire Living. She has been featured in the New York Post, Parade, and Observer Media. Previously, she worked at Goldman Sachs and in investment management after graduating from Yale in 2014. She shares more information about her life on @MadeleineHenryYoga.

Virtual Yin Yoga

Monette Shuttleworth from the Himalayan Institute of Pittsburgh leads this monthly program. She will provide background, support tips and answer any questions! We will meet on the 3rd Thursdays of every month. Register below for entire series (cancel registration only if canceling for whole series).  

Yin Yoga is slow-paced and meditative in nature and serves to complement to more active yoga (Yang) styles. Yin Yoga emphasizes passive postures held for several minutes at a time, with muscles in a relaxed state. The connective tissue in and around the muscles and joints is targeted.  Ultimately, Yin Yoga promotes the vitality, hydration, mobility and strength of the connective tissue. It also enhances a balanced flow of energetic circulation leading to a state of calmness, contentment and an overall lasting feeling of relaxation. Please bring a yoga mat, a pillow, and beach towel to support your practice. Registration required to get Zoom link. Registration is for the entire series and you need not cancel unless you are cancelling for the whole series.

Business Planning - the Traditional Approach (SCORE Virtual Program)

Central PA, Westmoreland SCORE, and Pittsburgh SCORE are pleased to present a new webinar series for its 2021 Small Business Expert Workshops.

Business Planning - The Traditional Approach

There are two major methods for creating a business plan. One method is compiling the traditional written document that many consider a typical business plan. The second method is to employ the modern method of the “Lean Canvas”. This class will explore the more traditional prose document that is still the favorite of many lawyers, bankers, accountants, and insurance brokers.

The Traditional Approach has been tried and tested for many years. The beauty of this method is that most people who review your document will understand what the bulk of the document means. There is written material for every reader, numbers for the numerical inclined and often graphs for the visually oriented. This document takes a while to prepare, but should be prepared incrementally over a period of time.
