Summer Stars at Buncrana Library 03.07.20

THE Summer Stars reading programme was launched in Buncrana Community Library on Wednesday, 1st July. Cathaoirleach Cllr Rena Donaghey was in attendance and said, “Donegal County Council is delighted to launch this fantastic literacy programme today in the newly-refurbished Buncrana Community Library. I am delighted that our libraries are beginning to re-open on a phased basis, as the library service is a vital community service and one that has been greatly missed over the last few months.”
Library staff & local families were also in attendance. Donna Cavanagh, Senior Executive Librarian said: “Summer Stars is a great way to keep your child’s literacy levels high during the summer holidays. We have put together a fun, interactive and enjoyable programme for children to enjoy during July and August.”
