St. Patrick’s Day Displays – March 2020

‘Tis the time in the month o’March when
We celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! And…

The Rolling Meadows Library was visited
by Lucky the Leprechaun.

He said to tell you he had to run, and
He’s sorry he missed you, but
Hopes he made your day more fun!

He went out of his way
To choose items about this special place,
His home o’Ireland.
It’s green, an island, and has lots of space!

So now, stop by soon to see
What he left us to find…
Rolling Meadows Library will bring you glee,
Many things: some new, some old to enrich your mind.

It can always be told that
A good book is better than GOLD!
