The week of 2 March to 8 March is Library Ireland Week (though Cork libraries are also running a year-long focus on reading: the Year of the Constant Reader). Then, next Thursday, 5 March, is World Book Day, with lots of events in Ireland for the day. And for the weekend, from Friday 7 March until Sunday 9 March, book-lovers have a choice between the Dublin Book Festival – with strong participation from Children’s Books Ireland – and the Ennis Book Club Festival.
