As part of the Library Ireland Week celebrations, Moate Library welcomed artist Anja Sammon for a one-hour workshop on Thursday March 5.
Anja drew inspiration from Seachtain na Gaeilge, which celebrates Irish culture, heritage, and language, joining it with Library Ireland Week to offer children the chance to make St Patrick’s Day-themed bookmarks. The workshop offered children the chance to use different materials such as card, paper, and woollen yarn.
On the evening, there were 20 participants - Brian and Sean Conlon; Liam and Lauren McLoughlin; Gerard and Therese O’Reilly; Colm and Eoin Shortall; Muireann Booth; Niamh Henry; Chloe Gavin; Phillip and Lisa King; Lorraine Quinn; Sandra and Padraig Nestor; Chloe and Kirsty McCarthy; and Roisin and Cathal O’Brien.
Moate Library was delighted to host this workshop as part of Library Ireland Week, offering children a chance to rediscover their library, while encouraging creativity and stimulating the imagination.
