FAMILY: CBI Book Clinic
Saturday 11th June, 2022 - 11:00 - 15:00free, booking essential
Are you a young reader? Looking for a new series to delve into? Feeling uninspired by your bookshelves at home? Then pop along to Children’s Books Ireland Book Clinic! Chat to the Book Doctor, consult on your favourite reads and leave with a prescription for your next book which you can take to your local bookshop or library!
Children’s Books Ireland Book Doctors give guidance about books to children and their families. Based on an informal chat, the white coat-clad Children’s Books Ireland Book Doctors recommend excellent books for any age of young reader, supported by Children’s Books Ireland’s many reading resources. All families are welcome to the Book Clinic, regardless of ability, need or barriers to reading. Every child leaves the Book Clinic with their own individual Book Prescription and a copy of Children’s Books Ireland’s Reading Guide
Each Book Doctor consultation will be 15 minutes in duration. The Book Doctor will have time to meet a maximum of 15 children over the course of the clinic so places are strictly limited and will be offered on a first-come, first served basis. If you have more than one young reader who would like to meet the Book Doctor please book one 15 minute consultation per child.
These clinics are taking place in our venue from 11am-3pm. Each clinic will be 15 minutes in duration and are suitable for children 0-18 years, though for babes-in-arms the advice will be directed toward parents. Places are limited, and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
