Children's Book Festival 2020 at Clare County Library


Children's Book Festival Programme 2020 (pdf file)

Row, Row, Row Your Boat with the Speks

Children’s Book Festival 2020 includes limited live events, lots of online readings and storytelling activities and guaranteed fun engagement with some of Ireland’s most popular and best-selling authors.

The festival is the biggest event in the children’s library programme and helps spread the joy of books and reading among children and parents, authors and illustrators, teachers and librarians all over Ireland. Whilst disappointed at having to scale back thousands of visits from schoolchildren because of coronavirus, library staff have not been deterred from connecting young readers with authors and book-related events in a time when the celebration of stories is more important than ever. The result will be a blended festival including some live and online events.

Clare library staff are hoping to interact with as many schools as possible and teachers can register to take part in events with their local branch libraries as in previous years. We appreciate your understanding of our delivery of a slightly different festival this year. Depending on event providers and their preferred method of delivery, restriction of the number of children participating will be necessary.

The CBF line-up this year includes a whole host of writers whose books span the reading ages of children from junior infants to sixth class. Each library’s programme with events taking place either online or live will generally be available only to schools in their catchment areas.
