Libraries across Northern Ireland are holding a range of special Titanic-themed events for children to celebrate this summer’s Titanic Reading Challenge, including storytimes, craft sessions and lots more...

The Titanic Reading Voyage has been devised by Libraries NI and children aged 4 and over are invited to call into any local library and sign up to this reading challenge during the holidays. The reading challenge hopes to encourage more children to love reading and this year, mums, dads, grandparents or other adults are also invited to participate in the challenge with their children.

Over 110 free and fun Titanic events have been planned in Northern Ireland libraries and children are invited to go along to enjoy these, including the following events in Rathcoole Library: Wednesday, July 25 between 2pm and 3pm, 8 to 12-year-olds are invited to help in ‘Painting of a frieze for Titanic Reading Voyage’. Booking is required so make sure you call the library on Tel: 028 9085 1157.

On Tuesday, August 14, again at Rathcoole Library, between 11am and 12 noon, 6 to 9-year-olds can enjoy an Author Visit by Oonagh Lynch. Oonagh will be talking about her book, how she started her writing career and where she gets her ideas from. The children will have a great opportunity to talk to the author and to ask her questions. Again, booking is essential, so call the library on Tel: 028 9085 1157. Admission is free and everyone is welcome!
