Squeeze in a Read!

Our library staff are making the commitment to squeeze in a read in some different spots in the lead up to Ireland Reads Day!

You can join in Ireland’s national reading day on Saturday 25th February by taking time to squeeze in a read and dive back into a book!

Squeezing in a read isn’t tricky when you can pick up great books, magazines and comics at your local library. Try and squeeze in a few pages of reading on your lunch break, on your commute or before bedtime to help aid relaxation and well-being.

Squeeze in a visit to the library and choose your next great read!
