Summer Stars Reading Programme shines again in 2024

Summer Stars Reading Adventure starts Tuesday, June 4th and will run until August 31st, 2024.

This free national programme, held in all Waterford Libraries encourages children to keep reading over the summer months.

Ragnall, Waterford Libraries extremely popular mascot paid a visit to St. Mary’s National School in Ballygunner to encourage children to join the Summer Stars Reading Adventure 2024.

Tracy McEneaney, Executive Librarian with Waterford City and County Council said, “It is important for children to keep reading over the summer if they want to maintain their reading skills or better still improve. Waterford Libraries offers free membership for all, and you are never too young to start reading.”

Each child can register for the adventure at any library and will receive a Summer Stars Reading Card to record and track their progress.

At the end of the adventure, children return their reading card to their local library.  A range of events for children will be held in Waterford Libraries throughout the summer, and during Children’s Book Festival in October Waterford Library staff will visit schools to present the children with their Summer Stars medal and certificate of achievement.
