Family Events for Culture Night 2023
Book Clinic with Children’s Books Ireland, Dublin
Where: Cregan Library, DCU St Patrick’s Campus, Drumcondra, Dublin
Are you a young reader? Looking for a new series to delve into? Feeling uninspired by your bookshelves at home? Then pop into the Children’s Books Ireland Book Clinic in the Cregan Library where you will find thousands of children’s books some dating back to the early 1900’s
Young readers and their families are invited to drop in for an informal consultation with one of Children’s Books Ireland’s friendly Book Doctors, who are ready to offer the best advice for young readers. The consultation begins with some questions about books the young reader previously read, as well as activities, movies, TV shows and video games they enjoy. This lets the Book Doctor know a little bit more about the patient so they can write a book prescription, which is a personalised list of books recommended for the individual patient. Every patient leaves the Book Clinic with a book prescription to take to their local library or bookshop to have filled.
