Friday Fine Film: THE PHILADELPHIA STORY

Please join us for a 75th anniversary screening of The Philadelphia Story on Friday, March 11, 1:30PM. Free popcorn and free beverage!

Same bat-time! Same bat-channel!

5bswebsitetitle

Just to let you know that you can still order your bat house kit and bird house kit at the Library. We extended the date to March 22 due to the snow days that may have prevented you from coming to the Library.

So far, the bat house is the most popular. It’s probably better for them to live in their own house rather than behind your shutter or in your attic…

Bird house is $10

Bat house is $32

April 10, 6:30PM, is when we build the bat house at the Library, or you pick up your kit and assemble it at home.

Hope to see you soon!

Pam

On Wednesday, March 11, 10:30am, a representative from Dunwoody Homecare  will team up with Joshua Wilkins from Anderson Elder Law to discuss services offered by a homecare agency, as well as legal documentation and considerations of arranging for care at home.

This will be a very informative session in the Winsor Room, and registration is not required.If you have any questions about arranging for care at home, this is a great, informal, atmosphere where you can get some answers.

I hope to see you there,

Pam

BUILD YOUR OWN BIRD AND BAT HOUSE AT THE LIBRARY

5bswebsitetitleRadnor Library plays a big part in the 5B’s multi-media extravaganza!

Help support a healthy ecosystem by building houses for birds and bats. Your bird or bat house is a complete kit and is made of wood.

PLEASE COME TO THE LIBRARY AND ORDER YOUR KIT(S) BETWEEN NOW AND MARCH 10! 

BIRD HOUSE: $10

BAT HOUSE: $32

PICK UP & ASSEMBLY AT THE LIBRARY ON FRIDAY, APRIL 10, 6:30PM

This can be a shared activity workshop that’s fun for you and your child, grandchild, or little friend. On April 10, 6:30PM, we will have the kit(s) you ordered and extra tools to put them together. You can also just take the kit home with you.

It is highly recommended that you stay for the workshop because BATMAN will be there to help you put your bat house together and PAUL BUNYAN will also be there to help with the birdhouse building! Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Call me if you have any questions, Pam at 610-687-1124 x 62. I hope to see you there!

Dr. David Casarett, author of SHOCKED…the podcast

Yes, it was a bone-chilling and cold to the touch Tuesday night when Dr. David Casarett talked about his book, Shocked–Adventures In Bringing Back The Recently Dead.

But, because Tom Ellis was there to record the author event, we are able to bring back Dr. Casarett, right before your very eyes…

Enjoy!

If you signed up for inwinsr and received this message in your inbox, you may not be able to click on this address right here to view the podcast. Please go to the bottom of this email and follow the instructions to go to the inwinsr page in order to view it.

<p><a href=”https://vimeo.com/120650364″>Shocked: Adventures in Bringing Back the Recently Dead</a> from <a href=”https://vimeo.com/user6198606″>Radnor Memorial Library</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

Not too long ago, there was no coming back from death. But now, with revolutionary medical advances, death has become just another serious complication…

On Tuesday, February 24, 7:30pm, the author of Shocked, Dr. Casarett, will visit the Library to talk about his book that traces the colorful history of efforts to revive the dead. The book is entertaining, informative, and at times, funny. Yes, funny. I also found one reviewer who described the author as having a keenly-honed sense of curiosity and a killer wit.

Casarett

 

David Casarett, M.D., is a physician, researcher, and tenured professor at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. His studies have included more than ten thousand patients and have resulted in more than one hundred articles and book chapters, published in leading medical journals. His many awards include the prestigious U.S. Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.

Books will be available for purchase.

I hope to see you on Tuesday night!

Pam
