During these unprecedented times Sligo Library are unable to offer school visits, class story time sessions or other events for Primary Schools. Therefore, Sligo Library have created a 5 week Schools Online Storytime programme FREE for all Primary Schools in Sligo and we hope teachers and their classes in your school will join us for these online sessions.
The programme starts on Thursday 19thNovember and run each week on Thursday and Friday right up until the end of the 2020 calendar year. All sessions are under 10 minutes and will be broadcast on our Facebook page on Thursdays (1st, 2nd and 3rd Class) and Friday (4th, 5th and 6th Class) afternoons from 12pm each day.
All of the stories were read by Sligo Library staff members and will feature some of our favourite children’s books, authors, and are a great way to expose your students to authors, entertainment and open up valuable book discussions. We encourage teachers to submit comments/ask questions/look for recommendations on the videos as they go live on our Facebook page each week.
