World Book Day in Galway City Library

World Book Day, which is being marked in over 100 countries this Friday, originated from the Catalan tradition of exchanging books and roses on Saint Jordi’s Day, April 23rd.

Everyone seems to be reading poems in Galway during this Cúirt week. Don’t be left out! If you would like to read your own favourite poem, or a favourite paragraph from a novel, or something you’ve written yourself, then we will be delighted to offer you time at our World Book Day podium in Galway City Library. You may also choose something to read from one of the many poetry books in our poetry collection.

All, and especially readers and writers, are welcome.
Join us at Lunch-time on Friday, April 23rd in the City Library, Augustine Street for a celebration of World Book Day.
