Literacy Week - “Story Bags” Workshop

Clare Family Learning Project

The Clare Family Learning Project at Clare VEC, together with The Clare Library Service, invite parents and their Primary School children to a “Story Bags” Workshop as part of Adult Literacy Week. These one hour workshops are on in the following libraries:
De Valera Public Library, Ennis on Monday 22nd Sept, 3.30pm
Sean Lemass Public Library, Shannon on Tues 23rd Sept, 3.30pm
Kilrush Public Library on Tues 23rd Sept, 3.30pm
Killaloe Public Library on Wed 24th Sept, 3.30pm
Ennistymon Public Library on Thurs 25th Sept, 3.30pm
Scariff Public Library on Thurs 25th Sept, 3.30 pm.
If you enjoy the workshop you can sign up for a six week course starting the following week. Participants of the course create their own ‘Story Sack’ made up of props related to a specific book. This is developed week by week as a different part of a book is focused on and the appropriate items are made and collected together in the bag. The process gives participants an opportunity to think about what elements there are to a book, the value of sharing books with children as well as being fun and creative. Each parent will get 2 FREE books, cloth bag and background. Please contact your local library for more information.
