Every year, during the month of April, Roscommon Libraries host a series of ‘Spring into Storytime’ events for local families and schoolchildren to attend. This year, while libraries and schools remain closed, these stories will be delivered online through on library Facebook and Twitter pages. These videos will remain online while library buildings are closed.
This initiative will provide another valuable resource for families alongside the online services already provided by libraries such as eBooks, eAudiobooks, and access to online learning resources on Askaboutireland.ie and Enfo.ie.
Irish publishers and the Irish Writers Union have kindly agreed to temporarily waive licence fees for the reading of selected books and the posting or streaming of videos online.
Library buildings may be closed, but in partnership with Irish writers and publishers, families in Roscommon are encouraged to celebrate great Irish writing with the library team online instead of in your local branch. Library storytimes are a fun way for children to enjoy stories, especially those who may not have access to books in the home or do not have access to new books at this time.
