Literary enthusiasts were celebrating this St. Patrick's Day by turning some pages.
Crowds of children turned out at the Midtown Carnegie Library to hear Legends of the Leprechaun, read books about Irish folklore, and even hunting for one of the legendary fairies.
Organizers say it's a festive way to teach children about heritage on this Irish holiday.
Storytime Reader Alexander East says, "anytime you can expose kids to the stories and ideas of another culture--Irish-American culture today, it's going to give them a broader view of the world."
Today's event included music and crafts in addition to reading Irish stories.
