Cork County Library Service will run the Summer Stars Reading Adventure for children in all library branches during the months of July and August. Summer Stars is an exciting reading-based programme which is available free of charge to children across the country. Staff at our 28 branch libraries and 4 mobile libraries would love to see your pupils take part at their local library and are very happy to work with teachers and families to encourage children to continue reading over the summer. Taking part makes reading fun and helps combat the common problem of literacy loss that can happen over the summer holidays.
Each child is invited to register for the adventure at their local library; all participants will be given a Summer Stars Reading Card to record and track their own progress and a library reward stamp will be added to their reading card at the library after each book read. 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.
We would greatly appreciate your help in promoting this to your pupils and their parents in advance of the summer holidays – a mention in the school report going home would be a fantastic way to get the Summer Stars message across!
