Event Description

Read LK launch

The ‘One Book One Letterkenny’ reader development programme was launched by children’s laureate Siobhan Parkinson on 21st February, in Central library. All children’s book groups in the Letterkenny area are encouraged to take part. Donegal Library Service has purchased 153 copies of Siobhan Parkinson’s book ‘Three Cats, Two Cows and A Witch’ to facilitate this initiative. This is an intergenerational initiative which encourages people of all ages to come together & read one book. This encourages inter-generational interaction, cooperation & learning while promoting reading.

The launch involved 6 speakers including poet laureate Siobhan Parkinson as well as representative speakers from the library service, schools and local authority.

The project goes on for 5 weeks with further events and activities.
