FAMILY: CBI Online Book Clinics

Saturday 2nd October, 2021 - 11:00

| FREE, booking essential

Riverbank Arts Centre is partnering with Children’s Books Ireland on FREE online book clinics on Saturday 2nd October, 11am-3pm.

Are you a young reader? Looking for a new series to delve into? Feeling uninspired by your bookshelves at home? Do you need a prescription for an exciting new read? Then pop into the virtual Book Clinic! Visit the Book Doctor and consult on your favourite reads – come away with a prescription for your next book which you can take to your local bookshop or library!

Children’s Books Ireland Book Clinics are pop-up events for providing guidance about books to children and their families. Usually Children’s Books Ireland partners with festival and venues, presenting children’s book experts as Book Doctors with lab coats, prescription pads and an official stamp. Based on an informal chat with children or parents who need guidance, they recommend excellent books, using their Recommended Reads guide to the best books of the year as a tool which can be given to families for their own reference.

These clinics will be presented on ZOOM, 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!).

If you are interested in taking part in a book clinic, please fill in this short form.  Someone from Riverbank Box Office will make contact with you directly in relation to the CBI Book Clinic schedule and offer you a slot between 11am-3pm, if available. Places are limited, and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
