Shannon Library celebrates The Children's Summer Reading Challenge
Almost 200 children and their parents from the Southern Region libraries of Shannon, Sixmilebridge and Newmarket-on-Fergus attended the certificate presentation event for this year’s Circus Stars Summer Reading Challenge in Seán Lemass Public Library, Shannon, on Tuesday 4th October. In attendance at the event was special guest Mayor of Shannon, Councillor Mary Brennan. The Mayor said a few words commending the children on their efforts in reading six books over the summer months and very kindly gave of her time in presenting certificates to the young people at the event. Following the presentation of certificates, the children and adults present were treated to a magic show from Tony Baloney. The audience (including library staff!) were enthralled by Tony’s magic tricks and comedy routine. The event was another testament to the continuing success of the Summer Reading Challenge in Shannon, Sixmilebridge and Newmarket-on-Fergus Libraries.
