So you’ve heard all about it, your friends are doing it, you’ve told yourself you’ve been meaning to do it, and here you are, still staring at that unused yoga mat! There is a reason everyone who does Yoga talks about it all the time, how it changed their life, how you should come to a class with them. Can you guess the reason? Yoga works!
Showing up to a Yoga class for the first time can be nerve-racking- so before the start of our Fall 8-week Session, come take this FREE class with WVPL’s instructor, Matthew Mitlas, and experience what everyone’s been talking about. Learn in a body safe and judgment-free atmosphere. You might discover YOGA works for you, too! This is a free demonstration, including time for Q&A. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a mat or towel on which to lie down. Will you be there? Let us know by signing up at the library in Blue Bell or online at yogawvpl.eventbrite.com.

A traveling lecture presented by Philadelphia’s National Museum of American Jewish History
America’s History of Imperfect Freedom
Although coming from different places and for different reasons, the Jews immigrating to America over the centuries have all shared a common dream: to live in freedom. But the freedom they found here has been imperfect, tainted by anti-Semitism, racism, and discrimination. This lecture explores how prejudice and social injustice, and responses to it, have shaped both the American Jewish community and its relationship to American society at large.

Meet Beth Schulman, author of "The Gold Mailbox.”
This program is held at Penllyn Woods Community Building.
This very informal program will give guests an opportunity to chat with a local author about her book. The fun aspect will be YOU get to ask the questions!
Beth and her older sister try desperately to maintain normalcy and order, in the face of uncertainty and confusion. Their young lives are filled with deception and despair at the hands of a narcissistic mother and her abusive boyfriend. Told from Beth’s point of view, the story unfolds with innocence and honesty. The Gold Mailbox captures moments of despair and hope, sadness and humor, sister rivalry and sister love, death and emotional rebirth, abuse and unconditional love. In the end, the story leaves the reader marveling over the healing power of compassion and forgiveness.
