Magical festive stories told at Rush Library

What is Christmas about if it isn't about magical stories?

The good people at Fingal Libraries recognised that fact and over the festive season held a number of Christmas Storytelling sessions across the library network in Fingal.

The Fingal Independent cameras were there to capture the magic at one such event held in Rush Library just before Christmas.

A series of magical festive tales were read to the children by expert story-tellers and as you can tell from some of the fascinate faces in the photographs, the children were enthralled by the exercise.

There may have been a lot of tablets and phones and digital gadgets in Christmas stockings this year but these series of story-telling workshops prove that there is still a place for traditional children's books in a child's Christmas and we all hope that continues for a very long time.

Well done to all the staff and management of the library network in Fingal who made this a magical Christmas for some many children this festive season.
