Summer Stars 2021

Be part of the Summer Stars Reading Adventure and discover the joy of reading for pleasure. We want every child in Clare to read as many books as they can during the summer holidays.

Sign up at any of our libraries and you will get your own Summer Stars Reading Card to keep track of your progress. Every time you show us your progress we will give you a reward. Everyone that takes part will get an official Summer Stars Certificate in September.
You can read books borrowed from our libraries or from our e-Books and e-Audiobooks app BorrowBox. It’s all free, and all you need is a library card!

Registration opens on the 14th June.

We will also have lots of FREE fun activities in our libraries and on our social media channels all summer long. There will be storytimes, book clubs, craft sessions and story writing workshops.

Information for Parents

It is important to keep children reading during the summer months. There is a lot of research which shows that children who read over the summer months keep the same reading level, and are better prepared for the new school year when they return to school in September. Reading helps develop creativity and the imagination. It can be calming during difficult times and helps improve concentration and communication skills.

The best books to read are books that you love.
We have lots of books to choose from in our libraries that will suit all reading interests.

If you would like advice on choosing books that your child will love ask any of our librarians for help.
