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. 

Virtual Yin Yoga 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.

You Must Remember This: The Jewish Experience in Hollywood

Author and lecturer Abby Mendelson will discuss the Jewish experience in Hollywood in a four lectures series (May 13, 20 and 27 and June 3). Forced out of New York, a small group of filmmaking immigrant Jews got as far away from Thomas Edison as they could – all the way to the deserts of Southern California. There, they created the Dream Factory – and succeeded far beyond their wildest expectations, creating both an entire new industry and a true American mythos. While they should have been happy and secure in their new positions, they remained afraid – of America and Europe, of Joseph Kennedy and Joseph McCarthy. Hiding in plain sight, signaling their concerns in coded films, they strove to survive, to assimilate, to retain their nascent empire – with highly mixed results. REGISTER BELOW FOR ALL FOUR PROGRAMS. 

Week I: Something New
Neil Gabler, An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood

Week II: Dodging the Holocaust
Aljean Harmetz, Round Up the Usual Suspects: The Making of Casablanca

Week III: Fighting the Fifth Column
Steven Ross, Hitler in Los Angeles: How Jews Foiled Nazi Plots Against Hollywood and America

Week IV: Battling the Blacklist
Glenn Frankel, High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic

We hope to present these programs in the library building, but we will also offer them on Zoom for anyone who prefers a virtual format. If the library has not resumed "in person" programming, they will be exclusively on Zoom.

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.

You'll learn how you can manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing, and reaction time. In addition, you'll learn:

  • How to minimize the effects of dangerous blind spots
  • How to maintain the proper following distance behind another car
  • The safest ways to change lanes and make turns at busy intersections
  • Proper use of safety belts, air bags, antilock brakes and new technology found in cars today
  • Ways to monitor your own and others' driving skills and capabilities
  • The effects of medications on driving
  • The importance of eliminating distractions, such as eating, smoking and using a cellphone

After completing the course, you will have a greater appreciation of driving challenges and a better understanding of how to avoid potential collisions and injuring yourself or others.

You Must Remember This: The Jewish Experience in Hollywood

Author and lecturer Abby Mendelson will discuss the Jewish experience in Hollywood in a four lectures series (May 13, 20 and 27 and June 3). Forced out of New York, a small group of filmmaking immigrant Jews got as far away from Thomas Edison as they could – all the way to the deserts of Southern California. There, they created the Dream Factory – and succeeded far beyond their wildest expectations, creating both an entire new industry and a true American mythos. While they should have been happy and secure in their new positions, they remained afraid – of America and Europe, of Joseph Kennedy and Joseph McCarthy. Hiding in plain sight, signaling their concerns in coded films, they strove to survive, to assimilate, to retain their nascent empire – with highly mixed results. REGISTER BELOW FOR ALL FOUR PROGRAMS. 

Week I: Something New
Neil Gabler, An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood

Week II: Dodging the Holocaust
Aljean Harmetz, Round Up the Usual Suspects: The Making of Casablanca

Week III: Fighting the Fifth Column
Steven Ross, Hitler in Los Angeles: How Jews Foiled Nazi Plots Against Hollywood and America

Week IV: Battling the Blacklist
Glenn Frankel, High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic

We hope to present these programs in the library building, but we will also offer them on Zoom for anyone who prefers a virtual format. If the library has not resumed "in person" programming, they will be exclusively on Zoom.

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. All non-compliant participants will be immediately and permanently blocked from further participation.  Because the Librarian facilitating the event will not be able to provide live technical support during the virtual program, it is strongly encouraged you familiarize yourself with Zoom in advance of the program. You can also contact the Library’s Virtual Reference Service for assistance learning Zoom. You can also join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom. For more in-depth instructions please visit the Zoom support page on joining a meeting.

An Evening with the Warhol Museum

Join Heather White, Artists and Communities Program Coordinator at the Warhol Museum, for an evening of discussion of Warhol's work, and a demonstration of one of his techniques, the Acetate Collage. Learn how Andy Warhol combined photography, collage, silkscreening, and drawing to create a more “collaged” look and feel in some of his commissioned portraits in the 1970s and 1980s. By adding torn graphic color aid papers underneath acetate and then drawing on top, he was able to experiment with different color combinations before committing to a color scheme for his final silkscreened portrait.

Participants will have an opportunity to learn the process, and try it out! No artistic training necessary, all suplies will be provided.

Mind/Body Practice and Silat Tuo Virtual Program
Pak (instructor) Adam Kripke will introduce you to Silat Tuo, an ancient 1500 year old Indonesian martial art practiced for both its self-defense applications as well as its benefits to one's mind, body, and spirit. Benefits of the art include improved sensitivity, awareness, mindfulness, stress & anxiety reduction, balance, flexibility, fine motor skills, muscle tone, as well as rehabilitation and injury prevention. This is an introduction to the art focusing on the health and spiritual benefits and movements instead of the martial art applications. We will meet on the 1st Tuesday of every month. Register below for entire series (cancel registration only if canceling for whole series).  

Until the libraray resumes "in person" programming, Mind/Body Practice and Silat Tuo 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. All non-compliant participants will be immediately and permanently blocked from further participation.  Because the Librarian facilitating the event will not be able to provide live technical support during the virtual program, it is strongly encouraged you familiarize yourself with Zoom in advance of the program. You can also contact the Library’s Virtual Reference Service for assistance learning Zoom. You can also join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom. For more in-depth instructions please visit the Zoom support page on joining a meeting.

Healing a Wounded World, Healing Ourselves: Vital Environmental Literature

Our World is wounded, deeply imperiled. Droughts transform California and Arizona into dustbowls. Melting glaciers denude Alaska. Wildfires devastate Australia and the American West.

Author and lecturer Abby Mendelson will discuss  eight outstanding authors – in poetry, prose, memoir – who desperately search for answers – as well as themselves. REGISTER BELOW FOR ENTIRE SERIES. 

Desert: Red: Passion and Patience in the Desert. Terry Tempest Williams
Ice: The Future of Ice. Gretel Ehrlich
Loss: Appalachian Elegy: Poetry and Place. bell hooks
Myth: The Songlines. Bruce Chatwin.

Our World is wounded, deeply imperiled. Droughts transform California and Arizona into dustbowls. Melting glaciers denude Alaska. Wildfires devastate Australia and the American West. Perhaps worst of all, we are alienated from ourselves and our natural home. How have we gotten here? What can we do to help? How can we re-connect with the natural world? Author and lecturer Abby Mendelson will discuss  eight outstanding authors – in poetry, prose, memoir – who desperately search for answers – as well as themselves. REGISTER BELOW FOR ENTIRE SERIES.

Ice: The Future of Ice. Gretel Ehrlich
Loss: Appalachian Elegy: Poetry and Place. bell hooks
Myth: The Songlines. Bruce Chatwin.
