To celebrate Women's History, we've been learning about and being inspired by incredible women in teen programs throughout the month of March.

Why read fantasy? Fantasy is the genre of imagination! Fantasy allows us to reflect on the universal ideals of love, family, corruption, revenge and more – in a world removed from our own.

So keep reading fantasy, because if nothing else, everything is better with dragons!
March is Irish Heritage Month and we're celebrating with books and music from Ireland! There's just something about the lush, rainy countryside that creates the perfect atmosphere for mysterious diversions; or perhaps light-hearted tales are more your style. Lucky for you, we have them all!
"Ireland is where strange tales begin and happy endings are possible." --Charles Haughey
