Spring Into Storytime - Join Us!

Date and time: 31 March 2021 @ 00:00 to 30 April 2021 @ 00:00

Public libraries’ annual Spring Into Storytime programme promises to bring the magic of storytime to homes across the country this April.  Spring Into Storytime is moving online and Cavan Library Service will organise virtual events and activities, all based around reading and listening to stories, which families can enjoy.

The programme provides an ideal opportunity for children to take time to enjoy a variety of stories through online storytimes by library staff and authors and experience reading as an activity which is fun, entertaining and allows families to share this happy time together.

Reading with children and access to books has many important long-term benefits. Children who develop an interest in stories and reading have been found to have greater self-esteem and well-being, greater creativity and imagination, better social and health outcomes, and an overall better quality of life as they get older. The Spring into Storytime initiative is a creative way in which children’s literacy skills can be developed.
