Alongside the exhibition of this work, a Poetry Treasure Hunt will take place to celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg. The treasure hunt is suitabe for children age 5+.  Look for the clues hidden around the library, answer the questions and find your own nuggets of poetry to add to our collective treasure!

Together with illustrator Tarsila Kruse and writer Juliette Saumande, the children discovered the wonders of travelling by map, by imagination, and by words. They explored their geographical and cultural surroundings and made connections between themselves and the rest of the world, creating multilingual dictionaries, drawing on emotion, putting music in pictures, and lots more. Juliette will help you shape your raw material into a sparkling gem while Tarsila will help you place it on our illustrated treasure map. You may discover that treasure can be hidden right on your doorstep!

Library programme for Cruinniú na nÓg is co-ordinated by Dublin City Arts Office.
