It’s almost that time of year again and Roscrea Library is delighted to announce that in conjunction with Bernie’s Supervalu, we are again holding our Summer Reading Tree Challenge.
The idea of the challenge is to keep children reading during the summer months and to reward them for keeping the reading up. For every book a child reads, they put a leaf on our “Reading Tree”. The aim is to read six books or more over the summer and then at the end of summer, they receive a certificate and a medal at our Reading Tree Presentation Night. The challenge is open to all children. Membership of the Library is FREE for all children still in school, it just requires the completion of a form and a signature by a parent or a guardian. Registration for the challenge begins on Monday 30th June. Access to the Library is even easier now, as we now have parking at the rear of the Library.
For further information on the Reading Tree and any other aspects of the Library, call us on 0505 22032, visit us on the Birr Road, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or browse our website at www.tipperarylibraries.ie.
Meanwhile, last Thursday saw a large group enjoy a very informative walk around the grounds of Mount St Joseph’s Abbey led by local woman Peg Bolger. It was great to see some of the old faces coming back to join the Roscrea Trail Blazers after a long absence. This Thursday we have a new walk up by Brittas Lake near Clonaslee. This is another evening walk not to be missed, leaving at 7pm from Mulrooneys Gala. For those of you looking to climb Croagh Patrick on July the 5th (please see separate notes) or join us in the Burren on Saturday August 16th to get into shape, and what better way to do this than joining us on our very social and easy going walks. As with all our walks they are free and open to all, young and old. We will be holding an open evening in the coming weeks in Tesco’s Roscrea to give people an idea of now is the time what our walks are all about and how to join. More of this in the coming weeks.
