28/11/18 Get into the Christmas spirit with Family Time at your local library

Storytelling Buncrana Library

The wonder of sharing a story at Buncrana Community Library.


With Christmas fast approaching, Donegal libraries are helping families with young children get into the festive mood with special ‘Family Time’ events in seven libraries around the county.


These events range from storytelling sessions to Christmas Carol meditation and are free of charge and open to everyone.  The first event takes place this Sunday (2nd December) in Moville library at 5.30pm with other events taking place in Buncrana, Letterkenny, Milford, Na Rosa, Carndonagh and Bundoran over the coming weeks.


“With Christmas just around the corner we are keen to help families get into the mood by snuggling up with their children and enjoying some special ‘family time’ at our libraries” explains Donna Cavanagh from Donegal Library Service.


“We are keen to encourage a more family focused approach to reading with children and raise awareness of the benefits of reading as a fun, recreational activity for children and of the services and resources for children in our libraries.  This is all part of the national ‘Right to Read’ campaign.”


So to anticipate the joy of snuggling down with a really good book over the Christmas holidays, come along to one of our events which are free of charge and open to everyone.
