Erin go Bragh! The celebration of St. Patrick's Day outside of Ireland is a clear indication of the Irish influence throughout the world. In the United States many cities and towns recognize March 17th with parades and parties to mark the holiday of Ireland's patron saint. Ireland has made a significant contribution to literature and the arts both in the United States and throughout the world. Celebrate the day by sampling a wee bit of Irish culture and history from some of the many titles available in the Library's collection:
Atlas of the Celtic world by John Haywood ; foreword by Barry Cunliffe — A historical, cultural and linguistic survey of the Celtic peoples from prehistoric times to the modern era, presented in a series of 54 full-color maps with accompanying text and 160 illustrations.
Black potatoes: the story of the great Irish famine, 1845-1850 by Susan Campbell Bartoletti — The story of the Great Irish Famine of the late 1840s through the voices of the Irish people.
