Children’s Summer Reading - there’s still time to join the Adventure!

The Children’s Summer Reading Adventure has been running in all libraries in Clare since the 1st of July and if you haven’t joined up there’s still time. If you would like to read six books between now and the end of August visit your local library and ask for your start-up pack. You can also pick up Reading Adventure gifts, including bookmarks, wristbands, pencils, activity sheets and more as you progress from book to book. And there’s more… Completing the Challenge guarantees you a place at a fun entertainment evening in the Autumn at which all our readers are presented with certificates.

Children who have already joined are enjoying taking part, are entertained by the varied book selection, are reading more than ever before and exploring different types of books.

Children’s author Julia Donaldson champions the Summer Reading Adventure; “The Summer Reading Challenge brings together two of my favourite things – reading and libraries. It's free, it's a fun thing to do in the summer holidays and it's going to create lots of life-long readers.

Those already taking part are helping us to promote the best books as the wall display (pictured above) of reviews for children by children in Shannon Library shows.
