'Spring into Storytime' online this May 08.05.20

DONEGAL County Library Service is always looking for new fun and exciting ways to offer interesting and educational services to parents and children. This May, their ‘Spring into Storytime’ programme will feature online storytime sessions to replace the fun Rhymetime and Storytime sessions normally enjoyed at your local library with your favourite librarians.
All sessions are featured on Donegal Library’s Facebook page .
Sessions will feature Irish authors and Irish published books and with this in mind the Library Service is excited that author Malachy Doyle will read his book Collywobble on Saturday, 9th May, at 10:30am.
Donna Cavanagh, Senior Executive Librarian with Donegal County Council Library Service said, “Spring into Storytime is a great opportunity to relax as a family and enjoy some wonderful music and story sessions. We are so lucky here in Donegal to have local artists working with us. ‘Spring into Storytime’ is further affirmation that we want to encourage a more family focused approach to reading with children.”

All sessions will be entirely digital and featured on Donegal Library’s Facebook page and will include:
