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.
