International Art of Storytelling – Ireland 2004
In April 2004, Miami-Dade librarians and librarians from Dublin City Public Libraries, Ireland participated in several round table discussions in Dublin. While there, the Miami-Dade librarian met with administration and staff and worked on ways to improve community outreach programs. Library staff was able to share stories and were totally captivated by the richness of Irish storytelling and musical traditions! A month later, the Miami-Dade Public Library System welcomed the Dublin City librarians/storytellers, who happily shared their expertise. The weeklong visit featured Irish culture including music, dance and storytelling. Many of the Irish groups in the community participated in the activities.
