The month of October is now synonymous with Children’s Book Festival. All over Ireland, thousands of child-focused events are taking place, designed to celebrate books and reading. An overwhelming total of four thousand children attended events during last year’s festival in County Clare.

This year’s programme includes visits to our libraries from children’s authors, Derek Landy who has been hailed as the next J.K. Rowling and bestselling, international author Malachy Doyle. Well-known Irish authors Judi Curtin, Niamh Sharkey, Bairbre McCarthy and Ré Ó Laighléis will also tour library branches.

The annual Design a Bookmark Competition will also take place.

With events ranging from author and illustrator workshops to puppet theatre, live history shows, storytelling, wildlife and nature presentations, there’s sure to be something to suit everyone!

  • All events are free
  • Ask at your local library for details of events in your area.
  • Pre-booking is recommended

The continuation of the festival is dependant to a large extent on the generous sponsorship received from local businesses. Clare County Library would like thank all its children’s book festival supporters. A list of contributors will be posted on the library website and in all library branches during the festival.
