This is part of the  ‘Right to Read’ literacy initiative that encourages children to enjoy the fun and pleasure of reading and to participate in a range of events and activities at their library. Announcing the programme: Minister Michael Ring said: ‘Summer Stars is free to all children and I encourage parents and children to go along to their local library and get involved.’ The initiative takes place in all 330 public libraries and is co-ordinated at national level by the Right to Read Steering Group, chaired by the Department of Rural and Community Development in collaboration with Libraries Development in the LGMA.
