Be a reading star this summer
THE popular Summer
Stars Reading Adventure is back in public libraries
throughout Donegal this summer.
Children all over Donegal are in with a chance to
become a Star Reader with lots of fun activities in
their local libraries.
“We are delighted to offer the nationwide Summer
Stars Reading Adventure to the children in Donegal
for the third year” says Donna Cavanagh from Donegal
Library Service “this is a great way to keep your
children’s reading levels up over the summer months
and to develop a genuine love of reading and even
better it’s free.”
Children enjoying being Reading Stars
last summer in the Twin Towns Library, Stranorlar.
Summer Stars is an
exciting reading-based programme and children are
invited to register and enjoy reading as many books
as they like as part of their summer adventures. All
participants will be given a Summer Stars Reading
Card to record and track their own progress. There
will be rewards and incentives along the way and a
grand finale event at the end for all participants.
“You can simply call into your local library” says
Donna Cavanagh “or even better you can ‘library-hop’
throughout the summer by using your library card and
get Summer Reading Record Cards stamped at any of
our libraries or Taobh Tíre centres throughout
Donegal and nationwide”.
“Any items borrowed can be returned to your local
library. So if you’re on a family adventure for the
day, why not call into one of our other branches to
return your books and borrow something new from
Library branches will be hosting activities during
the summer. There will be ‘Lego Play’ on Monday and
Friday mornings in July in Buncrana Library and
there will be Summer Stars Stories and Crafts on
selected Tuesdays and Saturdays in July along with
‘Star Baking’ sessions in the Central Library in
Letterkenny on July 10th and 13th.
