Join the 2018 Summer Stars Reading Adventure at Waterford Libraries this Summer!
Summer Stars is an exciting reading-based summer programme available free of charge to all children across the country.
The Summer Stars Reading Adventure will run from Friday 29 June, during the summer in public libraries all over Ireland. Children can register for the adventure at any branch of Waterford Libraries and enjoy reading lots of books as part of the adventure during this time. All participants will be given a Summer Stars Reading Card to record and track their own progress.
The Summer Stars programme provides the whole family with an opportunity to explore the full range of events and facilities which are available in their local library, such as story time sessions, children’s activities, access to talking books and games, computers and Internet access, and of course children’s books for all ages.
Exciting events and activities for children will also be held across Waterford Libraries during the summer.
For more information visit www.summerstars.ie which has lots of online games and activities, as well as a range of animated ebooks. You will find book reviews 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!
