Hop on board…..virtually perhaps! This library bus is no ‘ordinary’ library bus; it opens its doors to the past, the present and the future, providing us with a visual feast of imaginative illustrations, curious characters and shadowy stories.
Creativity will flourish as the bus journeys through the highways and byways of County Galway inviting school children to imagine the unimaginable through storytelling, art, music and make-believe. This journey started in March during Seachtain na Gaeilge and will continue in September/October when schools, throughout the county will be invited to participate in workshops of magic, music, mayhem and mysterious words, offered in a creative discipline suited to a specific age group.
The Schools Public Library Service’s diverse programme for Galway 2020 will use multi-disciplinary facilitators who will look at the way the imaginative world of reading can help children to re-imagine, explore, enjoy and experience the lives of others.
