Vision and mission

Children’s Books Ireland is the national charity and arts organisation that champions every child’s right to develop a love of reading. Through our many activities and events we aim to engage young people with books, foster a greater understanding of the importance of books for young people and act as a core resource for those with an interest in books for children in Ireland.

Every Child A Reader


To inspire a love of reading in children and young people in Ireland. To share our expertise and enthusiasm with the adults who guide and influence them. To champion every child’s right to excellent books and live literature events and support the artists who make that goal possible across the island of Ireland.
