Enjoy some Rewarding Reads with your library


Libraries are teaming up with Creative Ireland to to remind everyone that they can #StartANewStory and discover lots of 'Rewarding Reads' through their library, even while Covid-19 restrictions are in place.

Recognising that we might all be looking for a little distraction over the coming winter months, the Rewarding Reads campaign is here to let everyone know that a wealth of books for all ages and all interests are available through the library, and reading can be an excellent way to relax, escape, boost creative wellbeing or learn something new.

Online library services, including free access to eBooks and audiobooks, will continue throughout all stages of the Government’s Living with Covid-19 plan. All library members have access to these services completely free, and anybody can join online or by contacting your local library.

The Rewarding Reads campaign features a diverse range of Ireland's literary icons, from classic writers to new talents, as well as books across all genres. Authors featured in the campaign include Flann O’Brien, Emma Dabiri, Vicky Phelan, Roddy Doyle, John Boyne and Sally Rooney.

Take a look at some examples below and look out for the campaign on social media and send us your best attempts at flash fiction at home on social media! 


Find out how to access thousands of eBooks and audiobooks as well as other eLibrary services like online magazines, newspapers, online classes and more here.
