Tipperary library Rewarding Reads campaign features range of literary icons

Tipperary County Council Library Service is reminding everyone that they can ‘Start a new story’ and discover lots of rewarding reads through their library, even while Covid-19 restrictions are in place.

Recognising that we might all be looking for a little distraction over the coming winter months, libraries across the country in partnership with Creative Ireland are letting everyone know that a wealth of books for all ages and all interests are available through the library, and reading can be an excellent way to relax, escape, boost creative wellbeing or learn something new.

Online library services, including free access to eBooks and audiobooks, will continue throughout all stages of the government’s Living with Covid-19 plan. All library members have access to these services completely free, and anybody can join online at www.librariesireland.ie or by contacting your local library.

The Rewarding Reads campaign features a diverse range of Ireland's literary icons, from classic writers to new talents, as well as books across all genres. Authors featured in the campaign include Flann O’Brien, Emma Dabiri, Vicky Phelan, Roddy Doyle, John Boyne and Sally Rooney.

Here are a few recommendations from our eServices online. You can access all of these services for free with your library card barcode and PIN number. Call 0761 06 6100, or email libraries@ tipperarycoco.ie. If you’re not a library member but want to join then you can get all you need to access these superb resources in a matter of a couple of minutes at librariesireland.ie/ join-your-library.
