Thanks for bearing with us as we work to resolve teething problems with our new online system. Your library service now has its own online catalogue where you can search and reserve items and log in and manage your account. The online catalogue for Dublin City members is https://dublincity.spydus.ie
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.
Teachers have the use of sensory toys when organising class visits. Our colleague, Linda devised a ‘social story’ so that teachers / facilitators can prepare students with learning difficulties for their library visit. Linda worked with Fiona Ferris from AsIAm (Ireland’s National Autism Charity) who provided guidance on language and what to describe in the story.
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.
