Ministers O’Gorman and Humphreys launch ‘Little Library’ initiative to encourage a love of reading among young children (www.gov.ie)

The First 5 Little Library Bags initiative is funded by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Inclusion and Youth and the Department of Rural and Community Development to build on the relationships between the Early Learning and Care Centres and Libraries as part of the First 5 Government Strategy for babies and children and the Public Libraries Right to Read Programme.

The Little Library Bags each contain five books, one in Irish and four in English. The books are aimed at the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) age range of 2.5 years to 5.5 years primarily, and can be used with all pre-school children. A number of other useful resources are also included.
