invite you to attend a free screening of RETURN OF THE RIVER

on January 12 at 7:00PM

at the Radnor Fire Company


Filmmakers John Gussman, Jessica Plumb, Sarah Hart have created this award-winning film about the largest dam removal project in the history of the United States and the extraordinary effort to restore an eco-system and set a river free. (about an hour in length)

Please join us for this first film of our winter/spring conservation series, JACKSON HOLE WILD ON TOUR. Between now and May, 2017, we’ll be screening award-winning, outstanding films that were entered at the 2015 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival.

All of the filmmakers, who are passionate about their craft and the world we live in, love sharing their films with smaller audiences. They are hoping that it invites discussion after the screening and that it inspires people. The artists, who themselves are involved in conservation, hope to empower us in our local communities to get involved.

Voices From Mt. Pleasant–the podcast

first-baptist-churchEnjoy the podcast of Voices of Mt. Pleasant–a recording made of our recent event (12/13/16) at First Baptist Church of Wayne. Thank you to Tom Ellis for another great podcast for posterity…as I like to think of them. Every year at this time, I look back on all our partnerships with Radnor Historical Society throughout the year and I am grateful that most of them are online…because of Tom.

On that night in Mt. Pleasant, about 100 of us filled the church with song… and then some of us read aloud the personal narratives that are based on oral histories collected by Dr. Sharon Schwarze, PhD, and her students at Cabrini College (Cabrini University).

Happy Holidays to All!

Voices from Mount Pleasant



This presentation comprises a wide selection of Mt. Pleasant oral histories gathered over the years by students of Cabrini College, now Cabrini University. These oral histories exist because of a class taught by Dr. Sharon Schwarze entitled “Democracy and Diversity”.

The community of Mt. Pleasant, located in Tredyffrin Township, is mostly African American. While the neighborhood itself dates back to the early 1800’s, most of its residents are descendants of families who settled there during the 1900’s as part of the Great Migration.

The firsthand accounts of earlier times in this tight-knit community provide a valuable insight into a bygone era and document some of the many changes it has seen over the years.

Radnor Memorial Library is proud to present this event in partnership with Radnor Historical Society and the First Baptist Church of Wayne. The First Baptist Church of Wayne is located at 1012 Upper Gulph Rd., Wayne, PA.

Registration is not required. Please call me at 610-687-1124 x21 if you need more information.

I hope to see you there–



The inklings will meet Tuesday, December 13, 2016 at 7PM. Join us at the Gryphon Café in downtown Wayne and share ideas about writing and get feedback in an informal setting.

In case you’ve been wondering: some writers share their short stories, poems, letters and more…and some don’t. And that’s just fine with us. An inkling is younger or older…so you’ll fit right in. Our group is led by Joe Lynch, a published writer and retired teacher. Call me if you want to know more–610-687-1124 x21.

The Gryphon Café is located at 105 W. Lancaster Avenue, in Wayne, PA.

I hope to see you there!
