Discover the Luck of the Irish with SCLSNJ this March

The Somerset County Library System of New Jersey’s (SCLSNJ) 10 Library branches will commemorate Irish culture through an exciting series of creative and educational programs during the month of March.

“SCLSNJ is ready to don lucky green to celebrate all things Irish,” said Marcela Dunham, SCLSNJ’s program coordinator. “Families can enjoy traditional Irish music and dance performed at various locations throughout the Library System. Adults can learn about the history of Saint Patrick and participate in a book discussion of ‘Dubliners’ by James Joyce, led by Professor Timothy Martin from Rutgers University. Our younger patrons can also join in the fun by following the leprechaun’s trail and making specially-themed crafts at our participating branches.”
