Summer Stars Reading Programme 2018
We have prizes for the best book reviews. Please print off, complete and return by closing date Friday 17th August.
Offaly Library Service will run the Summer Stars Reading Adventure for children in all library branches during the summer from 23rd June 2018, to the end of August. Summer Stars is an exciting reading-based programme which is available free of charge to children across the country. We would be delighted to welcome all children to join in. We are very happy to work with teachers and families to encourage children to continue reading and also to participate in our range of storytelling and other fun activities during the summer.
Each child is invited to register for the adventure at their local library and enjoy reading many books as part of the adventure during the summer holidays. All participants will be given a Summer Stars Reading Card to record and track their own progress and a library reward stamp will be added to their reading card at the library after each book read. Children will be encouraged to continue reading throughout the programme and there will be rewards and incentives along the way. At the end of the adventure, all children who participate are invited to attend an award event at which they will be presented with their own Summer Stars certificate.
This year Buckley’s Cycles Athlone and Tullamore have kindly agreed to sponsor this event by providing one lucky participant from the county with a bicycle. This will be presented to the winner at the awards ceremony.
