Culture Night CBI Book Clinic @ Hodges Figgis
September 20, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Are you a young reader? Looking for a new series to delve into? Feeling uninspired by your bookshelves at home? Do you need a prescription for a new read? Then pop along to the CBI Book Clinic, where the CBI Book Doctors will be ready to offer the best advice for young readers.
The CBI Book Clinic will be at Hodges Figgis between 5 – 8pm on Friday 20th September. Children will leave with a CBI Reading Passport, and a prescription for their next read to take to their local bookshop or library. The Book Clinic is always free of charge and drop-in on a first come first served basis, although waiting lists will apply during busy periods, and during busy clinics like this one it won’t be possible to see all children – come early to avoid disappointment.
This CBI Book Clinic is funded by Dublin UNESCO City of Literature
Also in Hodges Figgis that night – Colouring the City with Children’s Books Ireland

Mary and Jarvis will be creating art from inside the beautiful front window of the store, come along and let them know what you want to see them draw! Help us colour the city!
