The luck of the Irish will be with you when you check out our list of favorite Irish authors and Irish themed books.  We can also help with your planning of the perfect St. Patrick’s Day feast.  Try Irish Country Cooking, Real Irish Food, or one of the other selections in our cooking section.  

After you pick up your books at the Library be sure to check out the St. Patrick’s Day specials at the local pubs!  Mike Duffy’sBar Louie’s, and Billy G’s are just three of the restaurants within walking distance that will have celebrations.  Need something to wear that reflects your love of the Irish?  Check out Kirkwood Trading Post!

May the sun shine all day long, everything go right and nothing wrong. May those you love bring love back to you, and may all the wishes you wish come true!
