Clare County Library - Children’s Summer Reading Scheme

Summer Reading Challenge 2012 – Story Lab

Clare County Library’s Summer Reading Challenge 2012 began on the 2nd of July 2012.

The free and fun initiative is a flagship library success story which focuses on reading for pleasure. More children than ever before took part this Summer with 800 participants receiving Story Lab certificates in recent weeks.

At each of the five venues, Kilrush, Shannon, Ennis, Scariff and Ennistymon libraries where celebratory events were held to mark the end of this year’s initiative, entertainment was provided courtesy of storyteller Niall de Burca and The Kids Party Club Puppet Shows.

Children who completed the Challenge had read six or more books of their choice during July and August.

Working on a “Story Lab” theme participants had access to a designated website enabling them to read along with children in the UK and Ireland and to share, create, transmit and broadcast stories worldwide.

Divided into three stages Story Lab challenge incentives were awarded to all who joined as they progressed through their target reads. Bookmarks, fridge magnets, log cards and special stickers all helped to encourage young readers in Clare to set out and achieve their reading goals.

The Summer Reading Challenge is just one of many exciting schemes public libraries offer to help children develop a love of reading.
