Book Clubs for Children

The New PolicemanThere are children's book clubs in branch libraries across the city, namely Ballymun, Ballyfermot, Cabra, Coolock, Donaghmede, Finglas, Pembroke (Ballsbridge), Raheny, Rathmines and Walkinstown libraries. Dates and times listed below may vary so it is advisable to check with the library in advance if wanting to participate in a Book Club.

The members of most clubs choose a book to read and get together every 3-4 weeks to discuss it. The library provides the books of course. Library staff often research the authors and books as a background to the discussion. Some clubs offer members the chance to come along and talk about the book they are reading currently - these clubs can take place more often as there is no set book to read.
