March Madness in Loughrea Library

World Book Day

On World Book Day, March 1st, Gaeilge Locha Riach launched their Irish summer reading challenge in Loughrea Library. Some children attended the event dressed as a character from their favourite book.

Mother's Day Display
For Mother’s Day on March 18th, craft, cooking, baking and colouring ideas were provided for eager dads and kids to celebrate all mothers in 2012. Children coloured in ‘World’s Best Mom’ diplomas and checked out cookery books in order to pamper mom on Mothering Sunday. Activities were held in Loughrea, Westside and other libraries across Galway.

Loughrea Nature Watch held an evening meeting in Loughrea Library on Monday, March 5th. Some of the discussion featured ‘The Beetles of Sherkin Island and Roaringwater Bay’. The group provided a few editions of the Sherkin Comment, an environmental quarterly of Sherkin Island Marine Station, for our reader’s consideration.

The coffee morning for Daffodil Day on March 22nd, held in Loughrea Library was a great success. All proceeds went to the Irish Cancer Society and the event was hosted by local volunteers. A raffle was held on the morning, with the top prize winner being our own assistant librarian Anne Callanan!

Easter weekend was a busy time in Loughrea Library. On Saturday afternoon an ‘Easter Craft’ session was held for our junior members from 2-5pm.
