21st July: The Summer Stars National Reading Adventure 2020

As the summer continues and parents try to keep children amused and busy, the library service in Longford is encouraging people to learn more about the Summers Stars National Reading Adventure 2020.  It’s the public library national summer reading programme for children that runs from the 15th of June until the end of August and all children are invited to join the adventure and to enjoy the fun and pleasure of reading and writing over the summer. It’s non-competitive and completely free. Fiona Cooney from Longford Branch Library has been talking to Anne Norris on the Let’s Talk about the scheme and why it’s more important than ever to try and encourage children to engage with reading and writing..
