A Free bedtime story book for all children, 4 years of age and under.
Roderic O’ Gorman, Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth and Heather Humphreys, Minister for Rural and Community Development today announced the First 5 Little Book at Bedtime initiative, in collaboration with public libraries and the Local Government Management Agency.
A free bedtime story book and library card wallet are available at the library for all children of 4 years and under, to pick up and keep. This exciting initiative aims to engage all parents of young children to read stories with them at bedtime.
Parents can choose a bedtime story book in either English or Irish.
The gifting of books ensures that babies and young children will grow up with books in their home. Whilst signing them up to library membership is key to ensuring they have a lifetime of access to books.
The Little Library Book at Bedtime initiative, part of the First 5 strategy, runs from October to the end of December 2023.
