Sligo Library Service invited all participants to Sligo Central Library on Monday 24th August at 3.00pm to celebrate the end of Quest Seekers Summer Reading Challenge. Cathaoirleach Cllr Gerry Murray, Deputy Mayor Cllr Jude Devins, County Librarian Donal Tinney and Executive Librarian Patricia Keane were on hand to award all with certificates, medals and goodies "galore" for all children who participated.
At the start of summer Sligo Central Library invited children to join the 2009 Quest Seekers Summer Reading Challenge, the theme of which was the power of the imagination. The initial launch took place in July & once all children were signed up as a Quest Seeker they were issued with a membership card, poster and collectable stickers.
All participants had to read six books of their choice from the existing library stock. On each subsequent return visit to the library they were given stickers to fill in the gaps on their poster - which completed the task of helping the Questseeker characters find the Golden Book. A website was also available online (www.questseekers.org.uk) for all participants to follow the adventures of the various Questseekers Belle, Louis and Raj
The Award Ceremony had a huge turnout with well over 100 children along with parents showing up to collect their certificates. As the large crowd entered the library and got comfortable Wayne O’Connor kept all entertained with a large variety of popular melodies. Executive Librarian Patricia Keane thanked all for showing up and in particular for the positive response from all the younger participants. Both Cathaoirleach Cllr Gerry Murray and Deputy Mayor Cllr Jude Devins then proceeded to hand out the various certificates and medals to all the children present. In wrapping up proceedings both Councillors were once again on hand to officially launch the start of the new DVD collection now available from the Sligo Library Service. The collection which spans both Juvenile and older age groups focuses on classical movies and educational documentaries which can be watched on numerous occasions.
