Summer Stars is the free national reading programme for children that takes place in all public libraries and online each summer from June - August.

All children throughout Co. Cavan are invited to join the fun - it's easy to register and receive a Summer Stars Reading Card to keep track of progress . The Summer Stars Reading Challenge is completely free and runs in tandem with our Summer Programme of Events which are also free of charge!


Pick up a Reading Card from your local branch –  check local opening hours. Visit your library to stock up on your summer reads and use the Reading Card to record each time a book is read, online or in print form.

Encourage your child to record any books, comics or magazines they read over the summer months and on visiting the library we will stamp all reading cards to keep the momentum going!  Every child who reads a book over the summer will receive a certificate AND there will be some goodies along the way too!
