Clare County Library’s children’s book festival programme is always jam-packed with a huge range of book-themed entertainment and activities and this year we offer an amazing line up of events to choose from. We’ve got brilliant authors, storytellers, animal shows, art workshops, and puppet shows for you to enjoy. The festival runs for the entire month of October and events are planned to take place in each of the fifteen libraries in the county.

The 2007 Children’s Book Festival was the biggest ever nationwide, with over 1,500 events taking place in libraries, schools, bookshops, and community arts centres all over Ireland. Almost 4,000 children attended events in County Clare and we hope to see you and your friends again this October.

Clare County Library would like to thank the kind sponsors of the festival and will post a list of contributors in all library branches and on this website during the month of October.

Please note:

  • Additional events may be arranged in your local library, which were not finalized when this programme went to print, so check at your local library branch for what’s on in your area.

  • Because many schools arrange to bring classes to events, advance booking is recommended.

  • Please contact the branch you are attending to confirm age suitability for individual events.

Check out the Children’s Book Festival website to enter two fabulous competitions with fantastic prizes and of course don’t forget to visit Clare County Library’s website, or call in to any branch of the Library for full details of the festival in County Clare.
