Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

Access to knowledge is the superb, the supreme act of truly great civilizations . Of all the institutions that purport to do this, free libraries stand virtually alone in accomplishing this …  Of the monuments humans build for themselves, very few say:  ‘Touch me; use me; my hush is not indifference; my space is not barrier’

Toni Morrison

After LaSalle's Irish Fun Day Parade, join the LaSalle Public Library for "Humorous Stories of Irish Heritage" featuring storyteller Mick Henneberry. 

Irish  storytellers are famous for their wit and inventiveness.  The extraordinary range of Irish stories comes from a folktale tradition more than 2,000 years old.   Hear Mick Henneberry tell Irish stories for all ages.  Mick’s grandpa told Irish stories of humor which he is now proud to share.  Mick brings his own love of rhythm and his experience of the last 20 years of storytelling to this program.

Funding for this program is provided by the Alwin C. Carus Trust.   This program is free and open to the public.  If you have any special needs or for further information, please contact the Library at 815.223.2341.

Growing up in an entertainment oriented family, Mick has been performing on the stage, starting on the unicycle, since he was four years old.  Mick uses juggling, drumming, trumpet playing and humor in his stories.  Sharing a love of poetry with rhyme and rhyme and cowboy and show biz tales, Mick, with his Irish background, brings a unique perspective to the storytelling stage.
