Summer stars

Today is the first day of September, which also marks the end of this years Summer Stars reading adventure in libraries around Ireland. We hope you enjoyed all of our online summer storytimes, our crafts videos, and scavenger hunts. And that you found lots of great book to read and enjoy this year.

You can find out what children all around Ireland were reading and enjoying with this collection of book reviews and remember, there is still time to leave your own review and let everyone know what you thought.

To mark the end we are hosting one final Summer Stars event - a very special Clayotics workshop. Call in to Athlone or Mullingar library and ask about collecting your clay kit. You will then be sent a video link, by email, and you can make your very own zoo-inspired creation. Don't forget to share a picture with us, either by email to or by tagging us on social media. You'll find us on facebook, twitter, and instagram.
