‘One Book, One Tuam…From Tuam to Terrabithia’ was launched in Tuam Library on Thursday 8th January.  This project was organized by Tuam Library and the Home/School Liaison Services. The aim of the initiative is to get everyone in Tuam, of all ages, to read ‘Bridge to Terabithia’ by Katherine Paterson during January and February.

Tuam Library and two Home/School Liaison teachers worked together to raise sponsorship to buy copies of the book. Local businesses very generously donated funds as well as John Treacy from International Education Supplies, Tuam Lions Club, Tuam Credit Union and RAPID.  As a result of this sponsorship, over 600 copies of the book are in circulation in Tuam town.
The initiative was launched by Irish storyteller Niall de Burca.

All events associated with this book will take place in the library over the next two months. These events include readings, creative writing, art, dance and drama workshops.

Midi Corcoran of Earwig Arts will work with children from local schools to create a ‘Terabithia’ float for the St Patrick’s Day parade.

The Mall Cinema will re-open for the purpose of screening this film.
