We were once again humbled by the sheer quantity of applications received from schools in need across Ireland wishing to participate in this scheme which is now in its second year. We would like to thank all the schools who applied this year for being so forthcoming and considered in their applications.
We especially wish to commend all of this year’s shortlistees on their commitment to creating a culture of reading in their respective schools and so passionately championing the needs of their students. .
CBI in partnership with ICLA and supporting publishers, will make an award of three libraries worth €2,500 each to three schools.
The winning schools will be announced publicly in early 2019.
