2) Festive Library Book Displays – One of the most creative and festive library book displays that we have seen leading up to St. Patrick’s Day is featured below and was created at the Tamarack District Library in Lakeview, Michigan! This is awesome, with a rainbow and even a pot of gold at the end! Send us pictures of your library’s most creative display and you might even see it on our blog soon!

3) Mint Oreo Hot Chocolate – We can’t really think of anything more perfect to go with a warm blanket, quiet corner and favorite book on St. Patty’s Day other than some delicious, green, magical hot chocolate. This one from Tonya Staab’s blog is a real crowd-pleaser! For our 21-year-old and over crowd, you might even want to spice your recipe up with an adult beverage option..maybe a little Bailey’s Irish Cream to liven up the mood and get you in the Irish spirit?? Just a thought 🙂

4) Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage – Food.com has outdone themselves this year and we want to share with you the easiest, most delicious recipe for the traditional Irish meal of the holiday. Check it out and don’t forget to save us some! We’re coming over for dinner!!

5) Leprechaun Bookmarks – These are the cutest, easiest, CHEAPEST bookmarks that you can make. How clever is this idea from The Huffington Post?! All you need to do is swing through your local hardware store and pick up some paint swatches. Then let your little ones go to town with stickers and sparkles to make their own unique creations to use while indulging in their new favorite book! If this doesn’t make reading (and St. Patty’s Day) fun, we don’t know what will!
