The Summer holidays are here and if you’ve already heard “I’m bored” reverberating in your eardrums, then it’s time to head to your local library.
“Libraries are buzzing with great books”, declares Kildare County Council.
“ Kildare Library Service invites children around the county to join the Summer Reading Buzz for 2013, Visit your local library and join the new Summer Reading Buzz.
