Let’s get Tipperary reading!
Ireland Reads is a new campaign to get the whole country reading this month in the lead up to a national day of reading on Thursday, February 25th 2021.Tipperary County Council Library Service has teamed up with libraries nationwide, publishers, booksellers, authors and others for the campaign, which is part of the government’s Keep Well initiative and aims to celebrate reading and all the benefits it can have for wellbeing and enjoyment.
The campaign is asking everyone to ‘squeeze in a read’ on Ireland Reads Day, Thursday, February 25th. A new website www.irelandreads.ie has been set up where people can pledge to read on the day and see how much time has been pledged by the Irish public so far.
The “Keep Well” campaign was launched on 29 October 2020, and aims to support people and communities to mind their physical and mental health over the coming months.
The five key messages in the #KeepWell campaign are:
- Keeping active
- Staying connected
- Switching off and getting creative
- Eating well
- Minding your mood
