Summer Stars Reading Challenge


Summer Stars National Reading Adventure 2020

Summer Stars

Summer stars reading adventure is drawing to a close. Laois County Library Service would like to say thank you and well done to all the children who took part in the reading programme. We would like to ask the parents to return your child’s reading card to your local library by Saturday 10th October to make sure your child receives their certificate of achievement and to be entered into the library draw for a kindle!

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!
