Let’s hear it for libraries! Where better to stick your head on a wet afternoon than inside a book inside a library? The Reading Champions initiative, launched at Dublin City Library, celebrates reading and libraries with the help of TV personalities, sports men and women, not to mention the odd (if not very) author. Primary schoolchildren came along armed with their favourite books, from Matilda and Ratburger to Diary of a Wimpy Kid and The Hunger Games, to hear the Lord Mayor and Education Minister celebrate the joys of reading.
