Summer Stars - Summer Reading Programme for Children at Clare County Library

Clare County Library will run the Summer Stars Reading Programme for children in all library branches during the summer holidays up to the end of August. The Summer Stars programme is a free programme and libraries in Clare will be delighted to welcome all children and their families to join in. Staff look forward to working with teachers and families to encourage children to continue reading and to participate in a range of storytelling and other fun activities taking place in some of our branches during the summer months.

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 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
