Children's Book Festival Dazzles in Dublin City Libraries
The annual Children’s Book Festival lights up Dublin City Libraries this October. This much anticipated national festival promotes reading for pleasure, igniting a love of books in younger readers. We have put together a glittering programme of over 45 different reading, creative writing and illustration events for primary school children across our 21 libraries.
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.
