Can you ‘squeeze in a read' ? 24.02.21

IRELAND Reads is a new campaign to get the whole country reading in the lead up to a national day of reading tomorrow, Thursday February 25th.
Inishowen Libraries have teamed up with libraries nationwide, publishers, booksellers, authors and others for the campaign, which is part of the government’s Keep Well initiative and aims to celebrate reading and all the benefits it can have for wellbeing and enjoyment.

The campaign is asking everyone to ‘squeeze in a read’ tomorrow, Thursday February 25th, on Ireland Reads Day. A new website www.irelandreads.ie has been set up where people can pledge to read on the day and see how much time has been pledged by the Irish public so far.
The website also offers book recommendations suited to a person’s interests and the time they have available. There are more than 800 recommendations from librarians all around the country. You can simply enter your favourite type of book and how long you would like to read each day and the website will offer a suitable book suggestion and work out how long it will take to complete – a couch to 5k for books!

It doesn’t matter how long you read for or what you read, it doesn’t matter whether you’re an avid reader, a reluctant reader, a lapsed reader or a new reader, this campaign is for you. Find out about all that is happening on Ireland Reads Day at www.irelandreads.ie .
