Children’s Book Festival 2009 launched
Councillor John Crowe officially launched Children’s Book Festival in Seán Lemass Public Library, Shannon, on Oct 3rd. Hundreds of young visitors along with their parents enjoyed non-stop entertainment provided by James Sexton Event Management in a four hour extravaganza of fun, including disco dancing, juggling and magic while sampling some delightful treats from a chocolate fountain. The hero of the day was Famous Seamus, who unicycled and juggled with hurleys and knives, all at the same time, to prove that men really can, multi-task. Saturday’s celebrations kicked off a full month of children’s activities in Clare’s fifteen library branches.
