Galway City Library Summer Reading Programme...revisited

The Summer Reading Programme has been running in Galway City Library since the 1980's.
One of the interesting features of this years recent certificate award ceremoney was the attendance of a former particpant of the programme from the early years.
She is now a lecturer in pharmacology at NUIG and was one of the first to receive a certificate when it started over 20 years ago. This year she attended the awards with her niece, who completed the reading programme this year.
Her career success is evidence that reading is the gateway skill that makes all other learning possible.
