Polar Express will be stopping at Loughrea, Tuam, Ballybane, Westside & Dunmore Libraries

Christmas Storytelling will take place in a number of Libraries based on the award winning picture book The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. It won the Caldecott Medal in 1986.

It is a wonderful Xmas story based on an old fashioned steam train that brings children to the North Pole on Xmas eve to meet Santa and see him off on his annual sleigh ride. Santa selects one boy to receive the first present of xmas, rather than the usual requests the boy asks for one of Santa’s sleigh bells!

There will be bells and hot chocolate in keeping with the story!
The sessions are being held in the evening, darkness required and there will be 50 children approx at each session. The story is magical.
