Going to school for the first time is a big milestone in a child's life. It's an exciting, yet somewhat nervous time for the whole family. We have put together a list of some of our favourite 'Going to School' books, which we hope will help your family navigate this new experience. All books are available to borrow or reserve in your local library.
Take a look at the most popular digital picks on BorrowBox so far this year as chosen by our Dublin City library members. Some of the titles you’ll know already, but some may be new to you and we hope you find lots of inspiration here for your reading and listening choices.
With over 45+ events to choose from, including several family friendly events, there will be opportunities for parents and children to join in the fun together. Dublin City Libraries Summer Programme for Children includes events for children of all ages, with a selection of ASD friendly events, along with events as Gaeilge.
My first week here was an adjustment week, during which I mostly learnt about the background of the Dublin Council, the Dublin City Library and Archives, and my primary duties. I visited Mansion House, City Hall, Hugh Lane Gallery, and 14 Henrietta Street in the second week, guided by my internship manager, to learn more about Dublin's urban history.
Get Reading! Now that school is over you can still spark your imagination, join in activities and take part in our exciting Summer Stars challenge. This year you can do a marathon read, a sprint read or a read from your couch; if you would like to register for the Summer Stars reading challenge, contact your local library.
