AARP Drivers Safety Course

THIS IS A TWO-DAY CLASS (part two is Tuesday, September 27. Register on this listing)

For Questions about the class, call 1-877-846-3299 or log on to www.aarp.org/drive

Space is limited!
$20 for AARP members and $25 for nonmembers (payable at the first class)

Cars have changed. So have traffic rules, driving conditions and the roads you travel every day, yet some drivers age 50-plus have never looked back since they got their first driver's license.
By taking a driver safety course you'll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today's increasingly challenging driving environment. 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.

About the course

The AARP Smart Driver Course, offered by AARP Driver Safety, is the nation’s largest classroom and online driver safety course and is designed especially for drivers age 50 and older. Over 15 million participants have gone through AARP Driver Safety classroom and online courses, taught by more than 4,000 AARP Driver Safety volunteers.

Lunch and Munch Book Club

The Lunch and Munch Book Club is in partnership with the Mt. Lebanon Lion's Club and meets when possible at a local restraunt to discuss books while sharing lunch together. When it is not possible to meet in person we will meet virtually via Zoom and we invite you to feel free to munch along with us while discussing non-fiction works of history and historical fiction. This month's selelection is Sonia Purnell's A Woman of No Importance.

In 1942, the Gestapo sent out an urgent transmission: "She is the most dangerous of all Allied spies. We must find and destroy her."

The target in their sights was Virginia Hall, a Baltimore socialite who talked her way into Special Operations Executive, the spy organization dubbed Winston Churchill's "Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare." She became the first Allied woman deployed behind enemy lines and--despite her prosthetic leg--helped to light the flame of the French Resistance, revolutionizing secret warfare as we know it.
 

The library will have copies of the book at the Circulation desk. Digital copies of the book will be available in Overdrive and the library's AXIS 360 account. Registration is required. Location TBD. If the event is virtual you will receive a Zoom link to the event and book discussion questions one hour prior to the start of the event.

Torn Paper Collage with Karen Nootbaar

Magazine collage art is a perfect way to simultaneously create AND repurpose. It allows us to utilize artistic elements developed by others, in new ways. Magazines are the ideal source material. From color and texture to words and graphics, there is something for everyone.  You may find inspiration in the most unlikely places (and magazines!). Simply cut (or tear) out what appeals to you.  There is no wrong way to collage and your work can be realistic, abstract, or even fantastical.

This is part of the SHINE@MLPL Initiative.

Materials will be provided. No experince necessary! 

This is an IN PERSON event at the library, and registration is required! 

Karen Nootbaar is a native of the Midwest, although for the past 26 years she, her husband, and their daughter have called Pittsburgh home.
Art has been a constant passion of hers since early grade school, and she’s dabbled in all sorts of media.  She used to call herself a “jack of all trades, master of none”, but then she learned the word “multipotentialite” and liked the sound of that much better.  She has experience teaching a variety of creative projects, including knitting, crochet, Shibori dyeing, needle felting, rubber stamping, and tapestry weaving.
