Millstreet Library is buzzing with excitement this summer.

We are thrilled to bring together two of our favourite things: the joy of reading and the thrill of hurling.  Our new display celebrates both the Summer Stars Adventure for children and the Cork senior hurling team’s journey to the All-Ireland final.

This summer, young readers can dive into a world of adventure with our amazing collection of books.  Whether they are exploring far-off lands, solving mysteries, or meeting fascinating characters, there’s a book for every curious mind. The Summer Stars Adventure encourages children to discover the magic of reading, earn rewards, and develop a lifelong love for books.

At the same time, we are rallying behind our Cork senior hurling team as they prepare for the All-Ireland final.  The display features a fantastic mix of books and hurling memorabilia, celebrating the dedication, teamwork, and passion that both reading and sports inspire.

Visit Millstreet Library to check out the wonderful display & immerse yourself in the excitement.

Let’s make this a summer to remember with unforgettable stories and thrilling sportsmanship! Rebels Abú.
