Going Places with Books - Summer Reading Buzz
Dublin City

http://www.dublincitylibraries.ie

Dublin City Public Libraries and the libraries of South Dublin County Council, Fingal County Council, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Council, Kildare County Council and Longford Local Authorities are encouraging children to read during their summer holidays with the Summer Reading Buzz.

 

Children aged between 7 and 12 can sign up for a Buzz membership card in their local library. This membership card is stamped with a bee stamp each time the child reads a library book and completed cards, containing 10 stamps, will be entered in library prize draws for lots of exciting prizes. Children can keep reading, keep collecting stamps on membership cards and keep entering the prize draw during July and August! Children who complete the Buzz will also receive a reading certificate from their library, as well as free bookmarks, wristbands and pencils.

 

Dublin City Public Libraries Summer Events Programme for children will also run throughout July and August and will have a special emphasis on books, reading and stories to complement the Summer Reading Buzz. The programme will include the Children’s Art in Libraries programme, with workshops and events celebrating visual art, storytelling, drama, music and performance and will appeal to all ages from toddlers to teens.
