There may be only three sleeps to Christmas but it’s not too late to give the gift of CBI Membership to someone who loves children’s books – or to buy it for yourself! By joining CBI you will become a vital part of a larger representative body highlighting the importance of books for young people, as well as supporting all the work we do throughout the year. Membership is open to everyone and includes three issues of our magazine, Inis, and a copy of Recommended Reads, our annual reading guide. Members also receive reduced entry to all our events for adults.
We’ve made a change in 2014 based on feedback from our members, and the CBI Membership year now runs from September to September. That way, you’ll always know when you’re due to renew, and we can send all our members a reminder at once.
If you’re a new individual member joining in December 2014, January 2015 or February 2015 (Quarter 2 of the membership year), you’ll get membership at a reduced rate up to September 2015 – just €30 instead of the full-year price of €40. If you join in Quarter 3 (March, April or May), you pay €20, and if you join in Quarter 4 (June, July or August) you pay €10. For overseas or institutional members, click through to the shop for current rates.
There’s also an option to become a member right up to September 2016; just click on ‘Membership to 1 Sep 2016‘ in the shop categories and select the right type of membership: individual or institutional, overseas or Ireland.
Click through to your preferred option in the website shop, and if you’re purchasing a gift membership, be sure to give us the name, address and email address of the recipient in the special instructions box.
We wish all our members a very happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
