A Pot O' Gold selected and adapted by Kathleen Krull
Though it may only be a small emerald isle, Ireland's heritage is very large indeed. In A Pot O' Gold, noted writer Kathleen Krull and beloved illustrator David McPhail bring this legacy to life. Created for families, this anthology compiles classic and rare examples of Irish culture including stories, poems, songs, recipes, and even a little blarney. From legends of leprechauns and fairies to the classic poetry of Yeats and Joyce, this treasury is a perfect way for anyone to share the wonders of Ireland.

During Women's History month, the library will touch on an aspect of Mary Lincoln that few have seen.
After the death of her son Willie, Mary Lincoln held séances in the White House to try to contact him and other deceased relatives. Why did Mary, and many other bereaved families, believe in the spiritualist movement? What happened at these séances? Did Abraham Lincoln ever attend one? Find the answers and more through a compelling presentation by historian Valerie Gugala.
Please join us in near the fireplace on the main level to enjoy this presentation. There is no registration necessary. For more information to this free event, please contact Edith Craig.
