This free event will include juggling shows, mime artistry, magic shows, a balloon modeller, a stilt-walker, and much more. The garden party will celebrate the launch of the dlr Libraries’ Summer Reading Buzz 2015, which will run in all dlr Libraries from June to September and is a children’s reading challenge organised by 13 library authorities in Ireland.
To join Summer Reading Buzz 2015, simply pick up a membership card from your local library. Every time you read a book you get your card stamped and there are lots of great free incentives, such as pencils, bookmarks, wrist bands, book bags, door hangers and swim hats to collect along the way. Once your membership card is full, you receive a Buzz Reading Certificate and are entered into a prize draw. An award ceremony with fabulous prizes is held every September.
This is the fourth year that dlr Libraries have run a Summer Reading challenge and each year the numbers have grown: nearly 1,000 children signed up and over 15,000 books were borrowed as part of the Summer Buzz in 2014.
