Read with the Obamas!

As you may have known, the US President arrived in Ireland this morning along with the First Lady. On their arrival Taoiseach Enda Kenny presented them with a gift for their children, Malia and Sasha, of a collection of Hawaiian children's stories by Padraic Colum.

What you might not know is that we have a copy of this same collection in two volumes in our Padraic Colum Special Collection in the Library. Why not check out what they'll be reading at story-time in the White House?!

Our Special Collections are not held in down in the main Library but just ask at the Information Desk for Legends of Hawaii or Bright Islands from our Padraic Colum Collection and you can keep up with the Obamas...
