IRISH CULTURE & HISTORY

The Providence Public Library houses a special collection featuring Irish, Scottish, and Celtic literature and folklore. The books on Irish literature and folklore were kept together as the Alfred M. Williams Collection on Irish Culture. Years later, a number of valuable books, pamphlets and broadsides were added to the collection. In those broadsides was the 1916 Easter Rising broadside Poblacht na hÉireann, a declaration of independence that is one of the most important documents in Irish history.
