Summer Stars at Tipperary Libraries
Summer Stars at Tipperary Libraries

Tipperary Libraries will run the 'Summer Stars Reading Adventure' for children in all library branches during the summer from July 1st to the end of August (some branches may start earlier). 


'Summer Stars' is an exciting reading-based programme which is available free of charge to children across the country. We would be delighted to welcome all children to join in and to participate in our range of storytelling and other fun activities during the summer.
Each child is invited to register for the adventure at their local library or Summer Book Bus, and enjoy reading many books as part of the adventure during the summer holidays. All participants will be given a Summer Stars Reading Card to record and track their own progress. At the end of the adventure, all children who participate are invited to attend an award event at which they will be presented with their own 'Summer Stars' certificate.


Children and families will also have access to fun reading activities on the 'Summer Stars' website, www.summerstars.ie. The site has lots of online activities as well as a range of animated ebooks. You will find a children’s books discussion board and interviews with well-known people about their favourite books. There are also helpful tips for reading and recommended titles by age group for children to read. The books can then be borrowed from your local library service, and it’s all free.


Events for children will also be held in your library service during the summer. Further information is available from www.tipperarylibraries.ie ; or on www.librariesireland.ie.


We are delighted to announce the return of the Summer Book Bus to Newport during the holidays. Starting on Wednesday July 11th and running until August 15th, the Summer Book Bus will be in Newport every Wednesday from 10.30am – 1pm and 2 – 4pm. Find us at the Community Centre in Newport, join in our annual Summer Stars Holiday Reading Adventure and be awarded your Summer Stars certificate at the end of the summer.
