Scéal Trail: Cabinteely Library Garden

  • Workshop

dlr Scéal Trail is an outdoor story walk that everyone can enjoy.

It’s a picture book delivered in an exhibition format that you can follow, from beginning to end, as you walk with your family or friends.

The aim of a Scéal Trail is to encourage reading in an outdoor setting, promote the use of books beyond the confines of library spaces and encourage engagement where parents, children, grandparents, siblings and friends can engage together with a book.

As the Scéal Trail is outdoors, it’s accessible 24/7!

Explore the Spidey Scéal Trail at Cabinteely Library Garden – Saturday 12th June

This delightful picture book ‘Spidey’ was written by dlr Senior Librarian Carmel Kelly and illustrated by Fintan Taite. The book will be installed in an outdoor exhibition format in the grounds of Cabinteely Library. 

‘Spidey’ was written in Irish but will have English translations to make the project bi-lingual and accessible to all, while at the same time supporting the use and reading of Irish language books. With thanks to publisher Cló Mhaigh Eo for permission.

dlr Libraries will also host online workshops for local schools from 7th-11th June including:

Book readings and activity sessions with author Carmel Uí Cheallaigh

Illustration workshops with illustrator Fintan Taite
