Spring into Storytime


Spring into Storytime is a national initiative in public libraries which is running during the month of April. It celebrates the importance of families reading together and sharing stories.

During April, Offaly Library Services are championing their children’s storytime sessions and invite children and their parents/carers to join in and experience the joy of lots of exciting tales! The sessions are completely free of charge.

As well as the enjoyment of the story-time sessions, stories and reading also help children to further develop their creativity and imagination.  Storytimes are a fun activity that also support children’s concentration and communication skills.
