Summer Stars National Reading Adventure 2023

Summer Stars is the public library national summer reading programme for children that runs from the 12th of June until the end of August. All children throughout the country are invited to join the adventure and to enjoy the fun and pleasure of reading and writing over the summer. Summer Stars is non-competitive and every child who reads even one book/e-book is regarded as having completed the programme – and it’s all completely free!


“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

Dr. Seuss
