Children’s Summer Reading Mission 2006

Presentation of Certificates of achievement to children who participated in this year’s Summer Reading Mission took place in deValera Library on Thursday evening the 28th September 2006.
A total of three hundred and ten children completed the scheme which ran over the Summer months of July and August. Each child read at least ten books from a list of twenty authors recommended by Clare County Library.
County Librarian, Noel Crowley presented children from all library branches with their certificates and twenty lucky young readers received spot prizes on the night.

This year for the first time, the library joined forces with The Reading Agency in the UK to advertise and promote the scheme. Children were given secret agent pens, stickers, bookmarks and other incentives during July and August to help them accomplish their Reading Mission.

The recommended authors for this year’s Challenge included, Terry Deary, Anne Fine, Darren Shan, Paul Stewart, Lemony Snicket and Kate Thompson.
