Stars in their eyes: Kilkenny library summer reading programme to go online

Summer Stars, the national summer reading programme for children that runs nationwide in our public libraries until the end of August, is going online this year.

Children throughout County Kilkenny are invited to join the adventure and to enjoy the fun and pleasure of reading and writing over the summer.

It is non-competitive and every child who reads even one book is regarded as having completed the programme – and it is all completely free!

With the impact of COVID 19 and the closures of our schools and libraries, the Summer Stars Reading Challenge will take place online to encourage and engage children in reading and creativity.

To join the challenge, children need a current library membership and Summer Stars reading card, which allows you to track your progress as you go along.

Reading cards can be down loaded from, or collected by pre-booked appointment from one of our branches that are providing services.

If you need to join the library, you can sign up online at, or by phoning Library Headquarters on 056 7794160.

“We are thrilled to be able to continue this initiative with the children of Kilkenny this year, and feel the importance of reading for fun is more essential than ever under the current circumstances” says Executive Librarian, Aisling Kelly.

“It is easier than ever to access our ever-increasing online resources, so you can participate fully this year without even leaving the comfort of home!”

Every year has seen an increase in the number of children completing this challenge, and last year was no different with almost 2,000 children receiving a certificate of completion, so we hope this year will be the same.
