On Friday we brought out Junior Infants along with their parents to Lucan Library as part of our CLOVER project. We took a Double Decker bus, which the children absolutely loved.
When we got there, Laura the librarian told us all about the different types of books available to borrow and showed us the lovely area especially for children. Again, she spoke about the benefits of reading to children every day. The parents then found a nice little quiet spot and read to small groups of children. Children Love Reading!! At the end of the session, every child was presented with their very own CLOVER certificate.
If you are not a member of the library, but would like to be, all you need is a photo ID and a utility bill to join. Everything is FREE!
We hope that our parents and our children keep up the great habit of reading every day together, and that they visit our local library as often as they can.

Our Senior Infant Bedtime Reading Club had its first meeting of the new school year. The parents were very excited to become librarians, and the children were excited to use their own bedtime library. This is a club run by the parents of Senior Infants for the children of Senior Infants, and we hope to promote the value of reading to your child every night. Reading to your child is such a special time - its a time to cuddle, chat, laugh and enjoy stories together. Children who are read to, enjoy reading. Children who read do better in school. Give your child the gift of reading for enjoyment!
