Join Binky and Zoink at the local library 27.06.17

THE popular Summer Stars Reading Adventure is back in public libraries throughout Donegal this summer.
Join twins Binky and Zoink at your local library and join in the fun during summer 2017. Summer Stars is a free programme, open to all children in all local libraries in the county.
Children will receive their own Summer Stars Reading Card to record their progress and a stamp will be added to their card at the library for each book they read.
Fun rewards will be provided along the way. At the end of the programme, all children who have participated will be invited to attend an awards event.
Cathaoirleach Cllr Gerry McMonagle joins children from Cara House Family Resource Centre Homework Club to launch this year’s Summer Stars Reading Programme in libraries across Donegal.
Senior Donegal County Council librarian Donna Cavanagh said: “The summer reading programme is really beneficial to children as it keeps their brain active over the summer months and sparks a creative and imaginative flair that they wouldn’t have if they didn’t read.
“Evidence shows that summer reading loss can average two months reading achievement each year, which some children may never regain.
"Libraries have an essential role in providing access to books and in designing activities that help children enjoy reading and develop their reading skills," she added.
Pop into your local library and sign up today for a summer reading adventure.
