'One Book, One Tuam'

One Book, One Tuam”, a community based literacy project was launched in Tuam Library on Friday 11th February by Storyteller Niall de Burca. This year is the third successful year and the book chosen for 2011 is ‘The Secret of Kells’ by Irish author Eithne Massey. This project involves classes from local primary and secondary schools along with Ability West, St Oliver’s and local groups all enjoying ‘The Secret of Kells’ and partaking in associated activities.
Events organized in conjunction with the project include music, art, drama and history workshops, all of which are free to attend. Author Eithne Massey will visit Tuam and read from her book and the finale of the project will be the viewing of the film. The objectives of the project are to promote literacy in the community, to involve local groups, clubs and schools in activities which promote inclusion in the community and to highlight the joy of reading for pleasure.
