Summer Stars is a free national reading challenge which takes places over the summer months to encourage children to begin or continue reading for pleasure while on school holidays.
The challenge is open to children of all ages and all reading counts – independent reading, shared reading, bedtime reading.
The challenge is to read at least eight books over the summer. All participants will be entered into an end-of-summer draw in their local branch. 24 branch winners will then be invited to the overall dlr prize-giving ceremony in dlr LexIcon on Saturday, 21 September at which a first, second and third overall prize will be awarded.
There are lots of fun rewards along the way as well. Look out for bookmarks, pencils, notebooks, pencil cases, bags and lots more!
Drop into Cabinteely Library or any other library for more information.
