Right to Read

Right to Read is a national programme underpinned by the Public library Strategy, Our Public Libraries 2022: Inspiring, Connecting and Empowering Communities.

The Right to Read programme brings together local authorities and local bodies involved in supporting literacy and reading development in the local area for a co-ordinated approach to providing these services in the community for individuals, family and children.

Cork County Library’s main focus is on events such as Spring into Storytime, Summer Stars, Children’s Book Festival, Family Time in Your Library, book club meetings in various libraries and other events during the year that promote literacy and reader development.

Cork County Library provides a wide range of resources and activities which supports schools in developing children’s literacy, numeracy, creativity and communication skills.
