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.

Tarot Tuesdays With Ten! (6th Grade & Up)
Do you want to learn the tarot but don't know where to start? Join reader Stephanie Ten Sivak for a fun 4 week introduction to the cards. For this class we'll be using the Modern Witches Tarot by Lisa Sterle (Provided FREE for all participants! Please make arrangements to pick up your tarot deck before the class begins!).  Bring a notebook and by the end of the class you'll have created your own tarot keyword guidebook, as you learn what the cards mean to you!  
 
Week 1: Learning the Major Arcana
In this class you will meet the Major Arcana.  These 22 cards feature archetypes and images that point to important aspects of our inner lives. We'll do an overview of the Majors, talk about how to read them, and look at each card individually. 
 
Week 2: Cups and Coins:
We will go card by card, looking at the symbolism and meaning of the Coins and Cups suits! Each suit of 14 cards reflects a certain part of our lived experience. During this class, we will cover half of the Minor Arcana.  
 
Week 3: Swords and Staves
We will keep going card by card, looking at the symbolism and meaning of the Swords and Wands (also called Staves) suits! During this class, we will cover the other half of the Minor Arcana.
 
Week 4: Spreads and Interpretation
Once you've learned the basic meaning of the cards in the deck, how do you put them together? In this class we'll go over popular card spreads including the Celtic Cross, and talk about how to read narratives and meaning into the cards that we pull. We'll also talk about tips for reading for yourself and others, and how to gain confidence in your intuition and interpretation!  
 
Stephanie Tenorina Sivak is an intuitive reader and teacher who uses tarot cards, energy work and guided meditation to offer opportunities for growth and change. Ten has been reading the cards since the late '90s, and has a lifelong interest in the paranormal and world religions. She has a degree in religious studies, is ordained as a nondenominational minister, and has attained Reiki level III. She is a librarian who loves talking and teaching and can be found at www.tenorina.com.

Tarot Tuesdays With Ten! (6th Grade & Up)
Do you want to learn the tarot but don't know where to start? Join reader Stephanie Ten Sivak for a fun 4 week introduction to the cards. For this class we'll be using the Modern Witches Tarot by Lisa Sterle (Provided FREE for all participants! Please make arrangements to pick up your tarot deck before the class begins!).  Bring a notebook and by the end of the class you'll have created your own tarot keyword guidebook, as you learn what the cards mean to you!  
 
Week 1: Learning the Major Arcana
In this class you will meet the Major Arcana.  These 22 cards feature archetypes and images that point to important aspects of our inner lives. We'll do an overview of the Majors, talk about how to read them, and look at each card individually. 
 
Week 2: Cups and Coins:
We will go card by card, looking at the symbolism and meaning of the Coins and Cups suits! Each suit of 14 cards reflects a certain part of our lived experience. During this class, we will cover half of the Minor Arcana.  
 
Week 3: Swords and Staves
We will keep going card by card, looking at the symbolism and meaning of the Swords and Wands (also called Staves) suits! During this class, we will cover the other half of the Minor Arcana.
 
Week 4: Spreads and Interpretation
Once you've learned the basic meaning of the cards in the deck, how do you put them together? In this class we'll go over popular card spreads including the Celtic Cross, and talk about how to read narratives and meaning into the cards that we pull. We'll also talk about tips for reading for yourself and others, and how to gain confidence in your intuition and interpretation!  
 
Stephanie Tenorina Sivak is an intuitive reader and teacher who uses tarot cards, energy work and guided meditation to offer opportunities for growth and change. Ten has been reading the cards since the late '90s, and has a lifelong interest in the paranormal and world religions. She has a degree in religious studies, is ordained as a nondenominational minister, and has attained Reiki level III. She is a librarian who loves talking and teaching and can be found at www.tenorina.com.

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.

Making Paste Paper

Fiber Arts Guild of Pittsburgh member Kitty Spangler will teach you how to make beautiful paste paper that can be used for making paper beads or other paper crafts. Paste papers are one of the earliest methods used to decorate paper. From the late 16th century through to the 18th century they were predominately used as book covers and as endsheets. Paste paper is made by applying paste paint in one or more colors to a sheet of paper with a brush or sponge.

BRING an apron and a large plastic garbage bag (or kitchen sized) to take home your wet or damp paper. IMPORTANT:  Wear really old and or crummy clothing AND shoes. The paste and acrylic paint are messy and the results are permanent and can stain clothing. 
 
Two-part class ending July 26th. Registration required and limited. $5 suggested donation. Register below for both classes.

Tarot Tuesdays With Ten! (6th Grade & Up)
Do you want to learn the tarot but don't know where to start? Join reader Stephanie Ten Sivak for a fun 4 week introduction to the cards. For this class we'll be using the Modern Witches Tarot by Lisa Sterle (Provided FREE for all participants! Please make arrangements to pick up your tarot deck before the class begins!).  Bring a notebook and by the end of the class you'll have created your own tarot keyword guidebook, as you learn what the cards mean to you!  
 
Week 1: Learning the Major Arcana
In this class you will meet the Major Arcana.  These 22 cards feature archetypes and images that point to important aspects of our inner lives. We'll do an overview of the Majors, talk about how to read them, and look at each card individually. 
 
Week 2: Cups and Coins:
We will go card by card, looking at the symbolism and meaning of the Coins and Cups suits! Each suit of 14 cards reflects a certain part of our lived experience. During this class, we will cover half of the Minor Arcana.  
 
Week 3: Swords and Staves
We will keep going card by card, looking at the symbolism and meaning of the Swords and Wands (also called Staves) suits! During this class, we will cover the other half of the Minor Arcana.
 
Week 4: Spreads and Interpretation
Once you've learned the basic meaning of the cards in the deck, how do you put them together? In this class we'll go over popular card spreads including the Celtic Cross, and talk about how to read narratives and meaning into the cards that we pull. We'll also talk about tips for reading for yourself and others, and how to gain confidence in your intuition and interpretation!  
 
Stephanie Tenorina Sivak is an intuitive reader and teacher who uses tarot cards, energy work and guided meditation to offer opportunities for growth and change. Ten has been reading the cards since the late '90s, and has a lifelong interest in the paranormal and world religions. She has a degree in religious studies, is ordained as a nondenominational minister, and has attained Reiki level III.

LOCATION: Children's Story Rm.
Do you want to learn the tarot but don't know where to start? Join reader Stephanie Ten Sivak for a fun 4 week introduction to the cards. For this class we'll be using the Modern Witches Tarot by Lisa Sterle (Provided FREE for all participants! Please make arrangements to pick up your tarot deck before the class begins!).  Bring a notebook and by the end of the class you'll have created your own tarot keyword guidebook, as you learn what the cards mean to you!  
 
Week 1: Learning the Major Arcana
In this class you will meet the Major Arcana.  These 22 cards feature archetypes and images that point to important aspects of our inner lives. We'll do an overview of the Majors, talk about how to read them, and look at each card individually. 
 
Week 2: Cups and Coins:
We will go card by card, looking at the symbolism and meaning of the Coins and Cups suits! Each suit of 14 cards reflects a certain part of our lived experience. During this class, we will cover half of the Minor Arcana.  
 
Week 3: Swords and Staves
We will keep going card by card, looking at the symbolism and meaning of the Swords and Wands (also called Staves) suits! During this class, we will cover the other half of the Minor Arcana.
 
Week 4: Spreads and Interpretation
Once you've learned the basic meaning of the cards in the deck, how do you put them together? In this class we'll go over popular card spreads including the Celtic Cross, and talk about how to read narratives and meaning into the cards that we pull. We'll also talk about tips for reading for yourself and others, and how to gain confidence in your intuition and interpretation!

Dead Until Dark / Charlaine Harris

Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana, but she keeps to herself and doesn't date much because of her "disability" to read minds. When she meets Bill, Sookie can't hear a word he's thinking. He's the type of guy she's waited for all of her life, but he has a disability, too--he's a vampire with a bad reputation. When one of Sookie's coworkers is killed, she fears she's next.
