Ireland Reads Campaign

On Thursday 25 February the Ireland Reads Campaign is inviting people of all ages to get reading.

Why? Because taking some time for yourself to relax and do the things you enjoy (like reading) is important to help look after your mental wellbeing.

Go to to take the pledge and see how many minutes people all over Ireland will be squeezing in to read on Thursday 25 February.

Ireland Reads is a public libraries initiative, in partnership with publishers, booksellers, authors and others under the Government’s ‘Keep Well’ campaign.

Feeling lockdown fatigue? ‘Squeeze in a read,’ says book campaign

Share to FacebookShare to TwitterShare to Email AppA campaign to “get Ireland reading during Covid” has been welcomed by President Michael D Higgins, who described the initiative as “such a good idea”.The campaign sees local authority libraries teamed-up with publishers, booksellers and authors to ask people to “squeeze in a read” on or before Ireland Reads Day on February 25th. While the libraries are not open for browsing or borrowing due to Covid restrictions, library members can use the library BorrowBox service online and choose from more than 44,000 e-books and 33,000 audiobooks. The website offers book recommendations suited to a person’s interests and the time they have available. There are more than 800 recommendations from librarians all around the country. Users may enter their favourite type of book and how long they would like to read each day, and the website will offer book suggestions and work out how long it will take to complete.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     From
