This is an Ireland Reads Event. Ireland Reads is a new national campaign to encourage as many people as possible to get reading. The campaign will run throughout February, leading up to ‘Ireland Reads Day’ on February 25th 2021.
Ireland Reads is about promoting the power of reading for enjoyment and wellbeing, combatting lockdown by encouraging everyone, young and old, to get back into the habit of reading and regularly setting aside time to sit and read a book, a poem, a comic, a newspaper, whatever works for them!
