Ireland Reads is a campaign to get the whole country reading this month in the lead up to a national day of reading on Saturday, February 24th
dlr Libraries has teamed up with libraries nationwide, publishers, booksellers, authors and others for the campaign, which aims to celebrate reading and all the benefits it can have for wellbeing and enjoyment.
The campaign is asking everyone to ‘Get Lost in a Good Book’ on Ireland Reads Day, Saturday, February 24th.
There are events happening throughout February in libraries through Ireland, including in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown.
Go to www.irelandreads.ie for full information and to get a recommended read or share a recommendation with friends and family!
Not sure what to read? No problem!
The Ireland Reads website offers book recommendations suited to a person’s interests and the time they have available. There are more than 1,500 recommendations from librarians all around the country, including Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown. You can simply enter your favourite type of book and how long you would like to read each day and the website will offer a suitable book suggestion and work out how long it will take to complete – so you can set yourself a reading challenge if you want - a couch to 5k for books!
Libraries all over the country will be running ‘Ireland Reads’ initiatives and events throughout February in the build up to Saturday, February 25th. Keep an eye on our website and social media channels for full details of dlr Libraries events.
A number of well-known campaign ambassadors are on board to help promote the campaign, and you can find out what reading means to them and why they support the campaign at www.irelandreads.ie.
