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.
