Children's Book Festival 2020


County Longford Library Services are delighted to present an exciting and fun filled programme of events for our annual Children’s Books Festival. The festival will run throughout the month of October and we have something for all ages and interests.

This year we are thrilled to be running a ‘Design your own Bookmark’ competition which will celebrate the creativity of the children of our county. There are two age groups 5-8 and 9-13. Entry forms are available from Longford, Ballymahon, Lanesboro, Granard and Drumlish Libraries. To arrange collection please contact your local branch. Strictly one entry per child. The winning entry in each category will be printed professionally and will be available in each of our branch libraries.

The art of storytelling is alive and well in County Longford and we are delighted to host online storytelling with our wonderful and very talented staff, Rosemary, Stella and Eimear. There will be fabulous online arts and crafts with Jess from Mudbugs and Stella. You can learn how to make delicious Halloween treats online with Fiona Egan, Cloghan Farm. We will also be looking forward to a virtual spooky storytelling with the amazing Chris Thompson on Halloween.

For more information on all of our events please contact keep an eye on our social media channels.
