Time to read from 9 to 5 (and beyond)!
Many of us have increased our reading this year. Due to the various lockdowns and such, we’ve found ourselves looking for things to do. [Featured Image: Eva Rinaldi, Flickr].
However, it’s not such an easy thing to get all the little ones to read. And, the ones that do tend to whizz through them like no tomorrow! It’s hard to keep up with buying all the books they want!
Well, none other than Dolly Parton is here to help young Irish folk. The country queen has donated thousands of books to Cork, to help young people read more.
It’s part of her initiative, Imagination Library, which was set up in 1995 to encourage reading among young people. Since then, Dolly Parton is thought to have donated nearly 150 million books to children worldwide.
The event in Ireland was held on November 11, and saw many families register for books. Great timing, coming just before Christmas too!
