Irish Cultural Centre library

The Benevolent Irish Society is in the process of developing a Reading Library as part of the Edward Whelan Irish Cultural Centre on North River Road, Charlottetown. The Library will specialize in books and periodicals dealing with Irish, Gaelic, and Celtic subjects. Currently the Society is looking for volunteers to supervise the Library. If you have three or four hours to offer one or two afternoons a month the Society would like to hear from you. The Society is also seeking donations of books that deal with Irish, Gaelic, or Celtic Themes. Currently the Library has 1000-1500 books. However, it has room for 5-6000 so more donations would be welcome. If you would like to help with this project by volunteering and/or donating books the Society would like to hear from you.
