To complement the Summer Stars reading initiative, Dublin City Libraries are delighted to present a fun packed programme of events and activities again this summer. Enjoy storytelling, music, theatre, puppets shows, craft workshops and much more that will appeal to children of all ages. Selected highlights include Sensational Space workshops with Rediscovery Centre and Astronomy Shows with Junior Einstein Science Club where children will learn about stars of a different kind – everything from junior astronaut training to rocket launching!. For those creative bookworms, many branches are hosting book themed arts and crafts sessions. Classic favourites including The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Esio Trot by Roald Dahl and Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak will inspire lots of creative ideas and crafts.
In various libraries throughout the month of July.
