1st Class went on their local tour today. They visited the local library and the firestation. They had a great day. Barbara the librarian read a lovely story to the children and the teachers escaped getting soaked from the hose at the firestation!
Did you know it is free for everyone to join the library? You can borrow up to 12 items for 3 weeks. There are some wonderful children’s books in the library.
Over the summer you can get involved in Summer Stars which is an exciting reading programme available free of charge for children all across the country. Children are invited to register and enjoy reading many books. All participants will be given a Summer Stars Reading Card to record and track their own progress. There will be rewards and incentives along the way and a grand finale event for the participants.
Check out the website – www.summerstars.ie which has lots of online games and activities as well as a range of animated ebooks – http://www.librariesireland.ie/summer-stars/talking-ebooks/
You will find a children’s book discussion board and interview with well-know people about their favourite books. There are also helpful tips for reading and recommend titles by age group for children to read. The books can be borrowed from your local library service. And it’s all free!
Our local library is on Pearse Street in Ballina – http://www.mayolibrary.ie/en/FindABranch/Ballina/.
