Suggested Library Activities

If you are a SLARI member you will have received a copy of SLA Guidelines – practical literacy in Irish School Libraries.  (Edited by Jane O’Loughlin and Caoimhe Ní Mhaicín 2013).  These articles are written by SLARI members on activities they have found successful in their libraries.  Reading promotion, reading development and study skills topics are covered.

Copies may be bought from SLARI at €10.00 for non-members and €7.00 for members.

For other ideas see below:

The January 2015 issue of the ASTI magazine, ASTIR, has an article on ‘Passing on the joy of reading’ featuring contributions from SLARI committee member Breege O’Brien. It can be found here.

History Live/Science Live

Michael Moylan gives a very entertaining session with either Science or History as the focus; it’s an interactive session with wonderful props. See the Irish History Live website for more details.
