Summer Stars Reading Adventure

‘The Summer Stars Reading Adventure is back and running from Monday, 13th June until Wednesday, 31st August 2022 in all public libraries across Ireland. Children are invited to register for Summer Stars in Greystones Library and be a part of the reading adventure.

As you’ll know, there is a lot of research which shows that children who read over the summer maintain their reading levels and return to school more prepared for the new school year. We would love if you could encourage your classes to continue their learning journeys over the summer months.

Reading Cards: All participants will be given a Summer Stars Reading Card to record and track their own progress. They will receive a summer stars stamp for each book read, in print or online. There will be a certificate and medal at the end for all participants.

EBooks and AudioBooks Count Too! The new BorrowBox Summer Stars ebook and audiobook collections for all age groups are now available. These collections are free to all library members.

Events and Activities: There are lots of activities and events taking place across the county. Check out our website or social media accounts for more details.’

We received this important message from Catherine Costello in the Greystones Library. If you have any questions, she says please do not hesitate to get in touch. This is well worth doing! An annual event, each year children from St. Brigid’s really enjoy and benefit from the ‘Summer Stars Reading Adventure’.
