The Summer Stars Reading Adventure for children will once again run in all library branches during the summer from 15th June to the end of August.
Summer Stars is an exciting reading-based programme which is available free of charge to children. They will be delighted to welcome children and their families to join in and we will encourage them to continue reading and using their local library during the summer months.
Each child is invited to register for the adventure at Dunmanway Library and will get a Summer Stars Reading Card to record and track their own progress. A library reward stamp will be added to their reading card at the library after each book read. At the end of the adventure, all children who participate are invited to attend an awards event at which they will be presented with their own Summer Stars certificate.
Children and families will also have access to fun reading activities on the Summer Starswebsite www.summerstars.ie . This site has lots of online activities as well as a range of animated ebooks. You will find a children’s books discussion board and interviews with well-known people about their favourite books. There are also helpful tips for reading and recommended titles by age group for children to read. The books can then be borrowed from your local library and it’s all free.
Events for children will also be held in the library during the summer.
