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.

Duncan & Miller Glass Museum Virtual Tour

Before the Pittsburgh area became known for its steel, it was once known as the glass manufacturing center of our country. Opened in 1893, the Duncan & Miller Glass Company became famous for its workers’ skill, the artistry of designs, and the glass colors. The National Duncan Glass Society was formed in 1975 to keep alive the history of glass companies, to study their impact on the economic development of the region, and to celebrate the men and women who made it possible.

At this virtual program, a representative from Duncan & Miller Glass Museum will highlight the history of the site and what you may see during your visit. Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions and learn more! Registration is required. To register, go to: https://bit.ly/3tFwTXl

A representative from the Heinz History Center will read a themed story that will introduce children to glassmaking in a fun and engaging way.

Registration is required. To register, go to: https://bit.ly/3QmnsG2

West Overton Village Museum & Distillery Virtual Tour
West Overton Village is the only pre-Civil War village intact in Pennsylvania. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a stop on the American Whiskey Trail. The Village represents the transformation of American culture from an agrarian society with the production of the coverlets and the distilling operation, to a more industrial society with the excavation of coal and ultimately the production of coke, a necessary ingredient for steel. Today visitors can tour the restored Village’s remaining buildings, including the Overholt Homestead, the Spring House where Henry Clay Frick was born, and the Distillery Museum.
 
At this virtual program, a representative from West Overton will highlight the history of the site and what you may see during your visit. Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions and learn more! Registration is required. To register, go to: https://bit.ly/3xtaP3v

Forest Meditation Walk with Martha O'Grady

GUIDED FOREST THERAPY WALK WITH FOREST AWAKENINGS

Humans evolved in relationship to the natural world but in the clamor of modern life, it’s easy to lose touch. Guided Forest Walks promote health and wellbeing by helping us slow down and connect more deeply with the natural world.

The walk will be led by Martha O’Grady, an experienced mindfulness instructor and forest therapy guide who has been certified by the International Association for Nature and Forest Therapy.

The September walk will be a quiet amble in Bird Park with time for personal exploration, sharing observations and enjoying tea brewed from local plants. Please wear comfortable clothing, dress for the weather and bring a bottle of water.

The walk will be led by Martha O’Grady, a forest therapy guide certified by the International Association for Nature and Forest Therapy.

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. 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.

Welcoming Week: Lion Dance Performance with Chris Young and Steel Dragon Lion Dance Troupe

Saturday, September 17th at 2 pm on the Southminster Manse Lawn across from the Library for this Welcoming Week Performance

Join Chris Young , owner of Gong Lung or Steel Dragon, a martial arts and lion dance studio in Ice House Studios in Lawrenceville, along with his Lions Dance troupe for an outdoor live Lion Dance performance on the Manse lawn across from the library. 

The lion dance has a continuous history of over one thousand years, and its origins may reach back more than two thousand years. Many stories surround the lion dance and its origins. One of the more popular ones is that an Emperor of China had a dream where a creature resembling a lion saved his life from evil spirits. When he woke, he declared the lion a symbol of good fortune. However, since lions are not native to China, artisans had no idea what they look like. As a result, they fashioned an animal with the attributes of other fortunate creatures: the dragon, the phoenix and the dog. 

There is perhaps no art that encompasses Chinese culture, history and philosophy more comprehensively than lion dance. Over its long history, lion dance has incorporated elements of Chinese opera, classics of Chinese literature, Taoist, Buddhist and Confucian philosophies, Five Element theory, all sorts of varieties of symbolism from Chinese (and most specifically Cantonese) society, and Chinese martial arts. 

The lion dance is now an integral part of not just Chinese culture, but of many Southeast Asian cultures such as Vietnamese, Korean, and Japanese. In fact, the most famous teams are probably from Malaysia. 

Welcoming Week is back at the Mt. Lebanon Public Library! 

 Welcoming America is proud to lead the growing network of hosts and partners around the United States and world who strive to make their communities a more welcoming place for all. Through Welcoming Week, organizations and communities bring together neighbors of all backgrounds to build strong connections and affirm the importance of welcoming and inclusive places in achieving collective prosperity. We are so excited that we can celebrate Welcoming Week in person this year at the library. This year we are celebrating the art and culture ofChina. Please save the date for these two amazing programs this September.

Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions and learn more! Registration is required. To register, go to: https://bit.ly/3zGMqKf
