World Book Night in Scariff Library

World Book Night 2014 was celebrated in Scariff Public Library in musical fashion as the talented teens of Scariff and the surrounding areas came out to perform in an open mic night held in the library. Free book giveaways on the night, ‘Hello Mum’ by Bernadine Evaristo and ‘The Recruit’ by Robert Muchamore, targeted young adults, encouraging those who had lost the love of reading – or were yet to gain it – to pick up a book and read. A relaxed friendly atmosphere was the order of the night and it was great to see so many performers courageously stepping in front of the microphone - with not one shaky voice to be heard! Teens present on the night were reminded of the young adult events taking place in the library including a monthly teen book club and teen film night which are free and open to all.
