Spring into Storytime this April

Printer-friendly version

Spring into StorytimeSpring into Storytime is a national story-time initiative in public libraries which is running during the month of April. It celebrates the importance of families reading together and sharing stories. The initiative was launched by Damien English, Minister of State for Housing and Urban Renewal on 5 April 2017 at Dublin City Library and Archive.

During April, public library services around the country are championing children’s story-time sessions and invite children and their parents/carers to join in and experience the joy of lots of exciting tales! The sessions are completely free of charge.

As well as the enjoyment of the story-time sessions, stories and reading also help children to further develop their creativity and imagination.  Story-times are a fun activity that also support children’s concentration and communication skills.

Come along to your local library and Spring into Story-Time! Highlights include a Teddy Bear Storytelling Picnic for under 7s and their favourite toy at Ballyfermot Library on Wednesday 12 April at 3pm and Storylands, a brand new storytelling session for 7 to 9 year olds every Wednesday at 2.30pm at the Central Library.
