Welcome

We would like to warmly welcome you to the resources and ambiance of our cozy Lending Library. The focus of the ICCNE Library is to provide a home to an impressive collection of Irish books, music, videos, art, exhibits and related material.

Genealogy is Returning to the ICC Library

The Irish Cultural Centre Library (icclibrary.info) and the Friends of Irish Research (friendsofirishresearch.org) are pleased to announce that they have forged a partnership that will bring genealogy research back to the ICC Library. Every third Friday of the month starting on September 18th, the Friends will be at the ICC Library from 7:00 – 9:00pm with researchers present to help chip away at genealogical brick walls. Bring your research and your questions and veteran researchers will work with you. The ICC now has WIFI throughout the building so feel free to bring your laptop with you. You can also plan to enjoy a snack, a meal or a pint at the ICC Pub. From September to November the Library will be hosting a display from the Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University.

We are a lending library for ICCNE members.

We also have approximately 500 Irish Music LPs, some of which are rare 78s. We also have many CDs and cassette tapes. This collection of Irish music will soon be cataloged and digitized and made available to our members. Continue to watch this page for updates.

The ICCNE library has also produced various exhibits. Among our exhibits are "Notable Irish Women." "Irish & Irish American Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients" and "Robert Emmet & the 1803 Rising."
