Virtual Library Storytime

Irish public libraries, publishers and writers have partnered up for virtual library storytimes across the country.

Spring into Storytime is the name of libraries’ annual celebration of families reading together – and this year, they’re planning to highlight the work of Irish authors by inviting everyone to #LoveIrishWriting.

Librarians will stream storytime sessions or post them online on their social media channels, and these videos will remain online while library buildings are closed.

The Irish publishers who have signed up are:

The O’Brien Press
Mercier Press
Little Island Books
Gill Books
Futa Fata
Leabhar Breac
An Gúm
Cló Iar-Chonnacht
Cois Life

Follow your local library service’s social media channels or Libraries Ireland’s Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages to find out when storytimes in your area will be uploaded. Visit www.librariesireland.iefor more information.
