Family Reading Programme at Scariff Library
The Family Reading Programme aims to bring the tradition of reading into local crèches/playschools. It is hoped that by getting young children interested in books early in their development, reading will become a fundamental part of their lives. Scariff Public Library staff member Aileen McDonagh visits crèches/playschools in the local area once a week for a number of weeks for a story time session, and each crèche class visits the library on the final week for a fun story time party. The children are introduced to a variety of different children’s picture books in a fun and colourful way and parents are welcome to attend the party at the library for the final session. The programme is free of charge.
