Irene O’Mahony has sent us the following email:
“As part of Derrinagree National School’s literary programme, we are looking to encourage our children to read more.
We are seeking donations of good quality books for children between 5 – 13 years. We are running a book drive in the school from Monday 25th January to Friday 29th January and would appreciate donations of any good quality children’s books.
Of particular interest are children’s favourites such as Enid Blyton – Famous Five, Malory Towers, Roald Dahl – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach etc. And new popular authors such as Jacqueline Wilson, David Walliams, Jeff Kinney (Diary of a wimpy kid), early reader books etc. Thank you.”
Many thanks, Irene, for this important message. (S.R.)
