The Friends of the Library are hosting a Saturday morning Coffee House on March 8th as part of the 125th Charter Anniversary of the library. This one features an Irish theme, with Leprechaun Lore by Hal Pratt and Irish dancing by Vicki Radel. Children will learn what leprechauns are, how they live, and how to catch them. Adults will learn how to jig. Everyone will have more than a wee bit of fun. Put on your green and join us from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. for refreshments and friendship. You don't have to be a member of the Friends to join us, but we'd sure love to have you join us soon.
