Ireland Reads is a new campaign from Irish libraries, Children’s Books Ireland, NALA, booksellers, publishers and others to get the whole country reading this month in the lead up to Ireland Reads Day on Thursday, the 25th of February. The aim is to get everyone to pledge to ‘squeeze in a read’ on the 25th of February, Ireland Reads Day – whether that’s reading a book, a newspaper, a comic – whatever works. All over the country, libraries and partners will be holding events and activities online in support of Ireland Reads. Wouldn't it be great to get the whole school community involved and pledge to read! It would be great if as many of you as possible can take photos of you, or anyone in your household (including your pets), reading a book and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please visit www.irelandreads.ie, where you can let them know how long you’re going to read for.
