Summer Reading in dlr Libraries 

In dlr Libraries we want to encourage all children to begin to read or continue to read over the summer months. This years' theme is: “Be a Summer Star”
The idea is simple, in June, simply sign up at your local library for Summer Reading. You will be given a reading card.
Each time you read a book you will get your reading card stamped, and there are great incentives all along the way, including bags, swim hats, wrist bands, pencils, bookmarks and stickers to encourage all who partake.
When you fill your card with ten stamps you get to enter our wonderful competition for great prizes presented at a lovely prize giving ceremony in dlr LexIcon in September. Last year our prize winners walked away with annual family passes to Dublin Zoo and Airfield, as well as a digital tablet, and lots of great vouchers for dlr Leisure and IMC cinema. This year it could be you!
We have some great events lined up to launch Summer Reading 2016 in May and early June, with fun for all the family.  Click on 'Read more'
