Every December Westmeath Libraries celebrates Family Time At Your Library. This is a national initiative that takes part in libraries all around Ireland supporting the whole family in getting involved with children's reading. We will have a range of activities in all our libraries for families to enjoy. The Family Time at your Library events aim to support a family-focused approach to reading with children as part of the national Right to Read programme and to increase awareness of the benefits of reading and promote reading as a fun, recreational activity for children.
