The Book Doctors

Are you a young reader? Looking for a new series to delve into? Children (with their parent/guardian) are invited to drop by for a  consultation with one of Children’s Books Ireland’s friendly Book Doctors, who are ready to offer advice.When the Book Doctor is ready to see a patient, the consultation begins with some questions about books, activities, movies, tv shows and video games they have enjoyed. The Book Doctor will write a book prescription,  a personalised list of books recommended for the individual patient.Every patient leaves the Book Clinic with a book prescription to take to their local library or bookshop to have filled. Drop ins are welcome although a waiting list may operate during busy periods on a first come first served basis.All families are welcome, including those with differing needs, dyslexia, ADHD, autism, and vision impairment.

Interested in becoming a library member on the day? Bring along photo id as well as proof of address and staff will get you set up. Don’t forget you can also register to become a My Open Library user and have access to the library building from 8am to 10pm 365 days a year.
