Wexford County Council Library Reader-in-Residence Programme


Wexford County Council Public Library Service seeks to award a contract for services for a Reader in Residence. The Reader in Residence will deliver a programme of activities designed to promote literacy and foster a habit and enjoyment of reading and library usage in children and young people.

Outline of the Residency

The residency will involve engagement with children through community groups and schools, centred round their local library. The residency will also provide opportunities for parents and children to explore and enjoy reading and other family literacy activities together.

The residency will be for a period of 10 months from September 2016 and will involve 15 hours preparation and contact hours per week.  

Further information on the Reader in Residence can be found at here

or by emailing
