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.
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.

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.
