11am – 2pm

Are you a young reader looking for a new series to delve into? Feeling uninspired by your bookshelves at home? Then why not book into the Children’s Books Ireland Book Clinic in the Reading Room as part of the Children and Family Fun Day at the National Library of Ireland!

Chat to the Book Doctor in our beautiful Reading Room, consult on your favourite reads and leave with a prescription for your next book which you can take to your local bookshop or library. The Book Doctors give expert guidance about books to children and their families. Based on an informal chat, the Book Doctors recommend excellent books for young readers aged 0-18, supported by Children’s Books Ireland’s many reading resources.

 These clinics will be presented in the Reading Room in Kildare Street, each child’s consultation will be 15 minutes in duration. A parent or guardian will be required to join the child for the appointment. Please note a 15-minute slot is for one child, if you have more than one child who would like to speak to the Book Doctor please book an extra time slot.
