Sheri Habib, 5, who is in the
kindergarten at the Waybright

Honoring their Irish
heritage
Meltoncutoutherownsham-
rock and inscribedablessingon
it that expressed gratitude for
the job she began at the library
about a year ago.“I am luckybe-
cause I get towork inabeautiful
library with so many wonderful
childrenand families,”shewrote
on a paper shamrock displayed
in a plastic stand on the table
where the children worked on
their own shamrocks.
It was a drop-in craft activity,
designed to get the children to
think about good things in their
lives. “I think it’s nice to focus on
our blessings,”Melton said.
“Some of the children want-
ed to pin them up on the wall
and some wanted to take them
home,”Melton said.
As part of the library’s St. Pat-
rick’s Day observance, the chil-
dren’s section featured a ta-
ble that displayed a selection
of books to encourage young
readers to learnmoreabout Irish
heritage. Green shamrocks sus-
pended on strings hung from
the ceiling made it easy to spot
the table.
“A lot of us have Irish heritage
… Some of us have to go back
a few generations to find it. My
mom was Irish. Her maiden
name was Smith. But Maroney
was the name of her grandfa-
ther who came over from Ire-
land and through Ellis Island,”
Melton noted.
Cody Abraham, a four-year-
old from Lynn, shares the her-
itage that Melton celebrates
this month in the children’s sec-
tion of the library. Besides hon-
oringhis family, friends andcats,
Cody’s shamrockwasdedicated
to his Irish-born grandmother,
Margaret O’Flaherty.
Puppy love and healthy
children
The children and adults who
displayed handmade paper
shamrocks on the“We are lucky
because …” board counted a
wide range of blessings.
“I am lucky to have a puppy
that loves me,”wrote one child.
“I am lucky because I am
strong, smart, nice and funny
…I amalso lucky tohaveawon-
derful family,”another wrote.
Julianna considered herself
lucky “because I get pizza from
Charlie’s Pizzeria.”
“I am lucky because I get di-
amonds for Christmas,” Tina
wrote.
Dylan cited “many ‘Curious
George’ movies to watch with
my brother.”
Several of theshamrockartists
wroteabout thegoodfortuneof
having “healthy” and “wonder-
ful” families.
“I amluckybecause I have two
healthy children,”CHwrote.
There’s still plentyof construc-
tion paper left to make sham-
rocks and lots of room on the
“lucky”boardforpeople–young
and old – who want to count
their own St. Patrick’s Day bless-
ings when they visit the library
today.
