There are still supplies of ‘My Little Library Book Bags’ available in Malahide Library. To help children to navigate starting school, libraries have put together a bag of books just for them that can be collected at any library. If you would like to have one, just ask at the Lending Desk. Further details about the contents of the bags are given below. Each My Little Library Book Bag contains: (1) Three books on starting school, making friends and being comfortable to be yourself (2) A story card on going to the library (3) A postcard the child can write or draw on and send to their new teacher, or bring to give to the teacher on their first day at school (4) Their very own library card and special ‘My Little Library’ cardholder. Malahide Library can’t wait to welcome all the 4 and 5 year old children in to collect their book bags and begin their library membership journey. We hope that once they visit the library to pick up their book bag, our new library members and their families will come back regularly to keep their bag filled up with borrowed books and to take part in story times, classes and all the other events we have to offer at the library.
