At the Butt End of a Rainbow and Other Irish Tales
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to everyone. I actually forgot today was St Patrick’s Day until I had an appointment and the staff was all decked out in green. COVID has killed my sense of time and I am stuck in some sick rendition of the movie Groundhog Day, repeating the same day over and over. Since I am married to Southside Irish and have been to the parade, drank beer, and marveled at the green Chicago River, I feel obligated to share this post from 2012. You can read the original post here.
Holly and I have an obligation to post anything with the word “butt” in the title (snicker). Does this book qualify as an “awful” library book? Based on the cover and title, it just might. Those of us with the maturity of a 12 year old boy might just LOVE this book and check it out.
Irish folk tales? Definitely a good idea in a public library. Is it old? Sure. Folk tales tend to have no age. The physical book might be problematic after 50 years. If it still works in your library, there is really no reason to weed it unless it is falling apart.
