Libraries around the world!

Caherciveen Library

This past year I went to Southern Ireland and found the Caherciveen Public Library in County Kerry. The Irish is spoken in western Ireland and their collection reflects the dual languages. In our library we also have foreign language books that include Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone written in the Gaelic. Come check it out and see if you can pronounce the words!
