Summer Stars Reading Challenge



Summer Stars National Reading Adventure

Summer Stars is the public library national summer reading programme for children that takes  place each year during the summer in public libraries and online throughout the country. Our goal, as always, is to promote every child’s right to read and to invite all children throughout the country to join the adventure and to enjoy the fun and pleasure of reading and writing over the summer. Summer Stars is non-competitive and every child who reads even one book is regarded as having completed the programme – and it’s all completely free!

You can keep up to date with our online events on Laois Libraries facebook page. Baby book club, 0-3 years, Tuesday & Thursday, weekly at 10.30am.  Bookbugs club, 4-7years and Rocket Readers 8-12 years, Friday, fortnightly, 10.30am.

BorrowBox: Browse, borrow, read and listen to children’s e-books and e-audio books through the library’s BorrowBox app. This is free for all members to use from anywhere, anytime. Non-members can join online for free at
