Each child who registers for Summer Stars at their local library joins in the fun of reading lots of exciting books during their summer holidays. They will receive their own Summer Stars Reading Card to record their progress along the way and a library reward stamp will be added to their card at the library after each book read. Children will be encouraged to continue reading throughout the programme. Fun rewards will be provided as they discover new books and authors. At the end of the challenge, all children who participate are invited to attend a special Family Reading Programme event at which they will be presented with award certificates.
Children and families will also have access to fun reading activities on the Summer Stars webpages at www.librariesireland.ie/summer-stars/. The resource includes lots of fun activities, games, talking ebooks, stories, reading tips, book suggestions and funny interviews with children’s authors and other celebrities.
Further information about the Summer Reading Programme and about reading related events taking place during school summer holidays is available from your local library service or on www.librariesireland.ie.
