Ireland Reads at Sligo Library

On February 25th we’re inviting people of all ages to get reading.

One minute, ten minutes, an hour, or more – it doesn’t matter how long you read for or what you read!

Why? Because taking some time for yourself to relax and do the things you enjoy (like reading) is important to help look after your mental wellbeing.

Take the pledge below and see how many minutes people all over Ireland will be reading for on February 25th.

Ireland Reads is a is an initiative of the government of Ireland, funded by Healthy Ireland and supported by public libraries, and many organisations that promote literacy and the arts.
