Jam-packed month of excitement is scheduled for Killarney Library

The Summer Stars Children's Reading Adventure programme will run throughout this month and next at Killarney Library and is part of an exciting series of events coming up in the town over the coming weeks.

Summer Stars will run throughout the country, free of charge, until August 25, with all children welcome to join in. Participants receive a reading card to track their progress, with a reward stamp added to this card after each book has been read.

At the end of the event, all participants will be invited to an award event, at which they will receive their Summer Stars certificate. Further fun will be available at www.summerstars.ie, which is also home to a wide range of animated e-books, a discussion board, book recommendations, and interviews with well-known personalities on their favourite reading material.

Also on the billing for this month is a Lydia O'Hara exhibition on ceramics, theatre props and photography. This runs from July 6 to 14.

A dog's trust workshop for children takes place at 1.30pm on Friday (July 6), with a Spanish-English conversation exchange next Thursday (July 12) at 6.30pm.

Also, a National Learning Network advice clinic takes place at 11am on July 17, with a drama reading club on later that same day, at 6.30pm.

On Thursday of that week, at 6.30pm, an Evening Book Club is scheduled to take place.
