Spring into Storytime online 29.03.21

THROUGHOUT the month of April, Donegal Library Service will deliver an exciting programme of online events aimed at children aged 0-10 and their families. The programme will reinforce the importance of reading and sharing stories and will focus especially on reading together within the family. Reading or listening to stories with your family is a wonderful way to relax and have fun and also supports the child’s communication and concentration skills.

The Library Service is disappointed that you will not be able to join them physically in your local library for Spring into Storytime 2021. However they have a fantastic range of events to offer you online; from author readings and cookery demonstrations, to music and craft workshops and even a family book quiz where you can win fantastic family day out passes.

To open the programme they have a one hour clinic with the Book Doctor who will chat in the comments on Facebook with parents and guardians recommending books for the young readers in their lives.
The schedule for all the events can be found at in the ‘What’s on’ calendar section.
