Radnor Memorial Library yoga class has moved to the Wayne Art Center!
The Library’s longtime yoga teacher, Amy Dolan, will continue to teach our free, family-friendly yoga class (held one designated Monday @ 7pm, once a month) at the Wayne Art Center while the Library prepares to transform its own space in the very near future.
Here are the summer dates for the Radnor Library yoga class at the Wayne Art Center:

We really appreciate the Wayne Art Center for their generosity and the beautiful space they can provide for us. Our plan is to continue the classes at Wayne Art Center throughout the Library renovation. So, please watch for more dates to be announced in the future.
Thanks, Amy, for being so flexible.
I love this podcast. A very special one, indeed.
Marilyn Caltabiano, former Director of Radnor Memorial Library, returned to our Library to talk about the fascinating Renaissance man that she knew–Adolph G. Rosengarten. Following Caltabiano’s presentation, enjoy hearing about Chanticleer: A Pleasure Garden from Executive Director and Head Gardener, Bill Thomas.
Thank you to Radnor Historical Society for bringing this history-making event to Radnor Memorial Library and its community. Many thanks to volunteer videographer, Tom Ellis.
On Tuesday, May 3, 7:30pm, Marilyn Caltabiano, former Director of Radnor Memorial Library will present taped interviews and provide personal insights into the fascinating man she knew, Adolph G. Rosengarten. Rosengarten is best remembered in Radnor as a horticulturist whose enduring legacy is Chanticleer.
Caltabiano’s talk will be complemented by a presentation by Chanticleer’s Executive Director and Head Gardener, Bill Thomas.
Radnor Historical Society is our cosponsor of this long anticipated event and we hope to see you there.
On Thursday, April 27, 7:30PM, s scene from Young Frederick Douglass will be presented in the Winsor Room. The Beacon Theater Production and full-length play was written by Walt Vail and is directed by John Mullany.
Months ago, in the planning stage, I scheduled the Adolph Rosengarten tribute in the Winsor Room to follow a week after the Frederick Douglass play performance. Little did I know that I would stumble on some information that links them together.
In 1859, Douglass and Harriet Tubman were both asked, independently, by John Brown to take part in his failed raid on the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry. (For more on this, read James McBride’s Good Lord Bird). During the same year, an ancestor of Adolph Rosengarten, Joseph George Rosengarten, was travelling through Harpers Ferry (or, attempting to!) and was witness to the raid, saw John Brown wounded and spent, and years later wrote a vivid account of the raid in an Atlantic Monthly article in 1865. Joseph George Rosengarten ended up joining the Union Army and fought with distinction at the Battle of Fredericksburg.
And now that Harriet Tubman will be the new face on the $20 bill, I welcome another freedom fighter of Maryland’s Eastern Shore to run parallel with our back-to-back upcoming events. This just fuels my passion for Eastern Shore’s Civil War Trail that is all Douglass and Tubman.
Please mark your calendar and join me on this special night at your Library.
What an electrifying talk by George Anastasia last week in the Winsor Room. And, yes, you could say it was… a mob scene.
