South Dublin Libraries is proud to be a part of several national and local initiatives.

Summer Stars


Be a Summer Star – join the Reading Adventure at home and online!

The annual Summer Stars children’s reading programme takes place in the summer time. Children record the number of books they read, return the completed card to their local South Dublin Library and receive small rewards along the way!
At the end of the summer, all completed cards are entered into a raffle at each South Dublin Library branch to win a prize.

A government-led initiative that is focused on delivering programmes and information aimed at improving the health and well-being (physical and mental) of everyone in Ireland.

Right to Read

Dormant Accounts Funded Projects

South Dublin Public Libraries runs various programmes throughout the county. These programmes are made possible through government funding provided by Dormant Accounts Funds (DAF).

The Minister for Rural and Community Development has responsibility for administration of the Dormant Accounts Fund, including approving the measures to be funded from the Fund which are delivered across a range of government departments. Money in dormant accounts is used to benefit the public.
