Summer Stars is the Right to Read national Summer Reading Programme for children that runs from the 15th of June until the end of August.
In 2020, activities for Summer Stars Programme include:
Summer Stars BorrowBox
Children can browse, borrow, read and listen to the Summer Stars collection of children’s e-books and e-audio books through the public library’s BorrowBox app.
This initiative will be delivered by library staff and Irish authors including chapter-a-day readings from books.
For 2020, theme An Unexpected Adventure has been chosen for the competition that will run from the 1st of July to the 31st of August.
Book lending services to children
As public libraries continue to expand the services being provided on a phased basis over the coming months, some authorities will provide Summer Stars book lending services to children where possible.
Reading cards and reviews
Children can track their reading progress with reading cards which can be marked each time a book is read, online or in print form.
Local authorities will provide Summer Stars online quizzes and scavenger hunts over the period, promoted locally.
