Bookville Kilkenny: Children's Book Festival

Bookville Kilkenny

The Kilkenny Library Service and Kilkenny Arts Office are working together to celebrate books, writing, animation, illustration, comedy and all those magical things that come together to create a good story! 

Last year we brought you Bookville in a Book, a wonderful festival book to treasure. This was extremely well received, so for 2021 we are planning to create a new Bookville activity book. Packed with fun activities and beautifully illustrated, the activity book is based on books and illustrations from some of the best contemporary children's books and is will be available through schools, libraries and the Arts Office. 

This year we will also bring you online events by some exciting authors, illustrators and educators! We look forward to seeing you at Bookville 2021 and hope that this festival will continue to inspire children of all ages to become critical thinkers with curious minds in the future.

Further details will be available soon, so follow us on social media and make sure you don't miss out!
