The Gaelic League Cultural Committee has created a
Library of over 100 books of Irish Titles or by Irish Authors. The
Library is located in the Gaelic League Lounge on bookshelves on either
side of the fireplace. Come and check it out! The books are available to
Gaelic League or Irish American Club members in good standing, and can be
checked out for up to 30 days at no charge. Just complete the checkout
card in the pocket of the books available, and turn the card into the
bartender on duty. Books can be returned to the bartender when due. The
Library is available during normal Gaelic League operating hours. The
Cultural Committee welcomes books of Irish topics, or written by Irish
authors, which you may wish to donate to the Library.
Many of the ongoing events
in the Metro Detroit Irish Community take place September thru May with a
