As part of Summer Stars moving online, BorrowBox (e-books and e-audiobooks) are offering increased access to a massive selection of popular childrens book for all of our Summer Stars! BorrowBox now has a range of children’s e-books and e-audio books with individual collections for 0-4, 5-8, 9-12 and 13+. Information on how to join BorrowBox

With Summer Stars going online this year, we are encouraging the children of Sligo to showcase their imagination through writing by entering a national short story competition. Using the theme, ‘An Unexpected Adventure’ we hope all of our stars can submit their stories on the competition page…/story-competition-an-unex…#summerstarsstory

You do not need to register for Summer Stars 2020 as it is primarily online, so once you have access to our online services you are ready to go! If you are not a member of Sligo libraries you can join the library online:

Unfortunately, due to current restrictions around Covid-19 our Summer Stars will not receive a reading card to keep track of your progress and rewards are not part of this years programme. However, the good news is that Sligo Libraries have many exciting online features for children to get involved in, from national and local online competitions which will see winners getting goodie bags. We will also broadcast online story-time sessions, quizzes, author readings and much, much more!

Join the Summer Stars 2020 fun in Sligo over the coming months. #SummerStarsSligo
