Spring Into Storytime 2020 was a great online celebration of shared reading and Irish writing.  During the months of April and May we shared storytimes recorded by Cavan library staff, by Irish authors and lots of other talented and dedicated readers.

 If you missed any of the readings you can follow our links below to Online Storytime by authors and librarians from Cavan Library Service and beyond and continue the magic of storytime with your children!
