Power of Now Book Discussion
Shaler North Hill Library, Wednesday, May 4 at 11am
New members are welcome!
Join us as we read, discuss and meditate on this powerful book.
Eckhart Tolle is emerging as one of today's most inspiring teachers. In "The Power of Now" the author describes his transition from despair to self-realization soon after his 29th birthday. He took another ten years to understand this transformation, during which time he evolved a philosophy that has parallels in Buddhism, relaxation techniques, and meditation theory but is also eminently practical.

Historical Society of Mount Lebanon
Mt. Lebanon Public Library, Wednesday, May 4 at 8pm
THIS PROGRAM WILL BE HELD AT WASHINGTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AUDITORIUM
George Washington's inauguration was a breaking news story for The Pittsburgh Gazette. Abraham Lincoln's speech at Gettysburg was covered the day it happened by a Gazette reporter. When African-American soldiers from Pittsburgh returned home after World War I, the story and pictures were on page 1 of The Pittsburgh Gazette Times. At times of national tragedy, such as the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915, Gazette writers have found local angles to bring the story home to readers. Whenever a famous musician, writer or politician came to town over the past two centuries, reporters from the Post-Gazette and its ancestor newspapers were there to interview and review.
Len Barcousky has gathered many of those reports in his new book, "Hidden History of Pittsburgh." Those reports – gleaned from Gazette archives that go back to 1786 – are not so much hidden history, but rather history that is at risk of being forgotten. And that would be too bad. Most news stories, especially in the age of the Internet, have the lifespan of May fly. Almost all of these 19th and 20th century stories were reported, written and printed in a day. These "Hidden History" tales deserve another reading. They show how ordinary and extraordinary people have responded to challenge. They include new anecdotes that offer insights into the character of historic figures. They show us what daily life was like in and around Pittsburgh during war and peace.
LEN BARCOUSKY BIO: A journalist since 1970, Len Barcousky recently retired from the Post-Gazette. He came to Pittsburgh in 1986 from the Bethlehem (Pa.) Globe-Times. He started there as night reporter and eventually became editor of the newspaper. He has also worked for the Allentown Morning Call and the Syracuse Post-Standard. A graduate of Penn State with a degree in English, he has a master's degree from Columbia University Graduate School of Business with a dual concentration in marketing and finance. He has been on special assignment and reported from Germany, Korea, the Czech Republic, Poland and all three of the Baltic countries. He lives in Ben Avon with his wife, Barbara, also a Penn State graduate. They are the parents of two adult children. He continues to write for the Post-Gazette on historical topics and is the creator of the Post-Gazette's "Eyewitness" series, which looks at how historic events and everyday life were reported in Pittsburgh's local newspapers. His "Eyewitness" stories appear on Page A-2 twice a month in the Sunday edition of the Post-Gazette. He is the author of three books about local history. They are "Civil War Pittsburgh: Forge of the Nation" (2013), "Remembering Pittsburgh: An 'Eyewitness' History of the Steel City" (2010) and his new book, "Hidden History of Pittsburgh" (2016). All three books are published by The History Press. (added from Eventkeeper)

Book Cellar Clearance Sale
Mt. Lebanon Public Library, Saturday, May 7 at 10:30am
New Look for the Book Cellar The Book Cellar Coordinating Committee has announced a major remodeling project for the Library's used bookstore. The plan calls for moving the sales desk across the hall into the alcove. The fiction bookcases in that area will be configured along the wall where the desk now sits.
To show off the store's new appearance, to reward customers, and to get new readers to visit the Book Cellar, we have scheduled a sale on a grand scale. The entire store inventory will be available at discount prices, including the backroom reserve which will be moved into Room A. This means much of the sale inventory will be "brand" new!
Don't miss out1 One day only! (added from Eventkeeper)
