What is Dublin: A City of Readers?

About the Campaign: In an effort to build community, people around our country have been coming together to build community through the use of a common story. As a city of innovation, Dublin has joined this national movement with Dublin: A City of Readers.

This year, 2018, is our inaugural year. We want thousands of Dubliners to come together, read, and discuss, "How to Catch a Leprechaun," by Adam Wallace. Copies of the book will be given to all who visit Dublin City Schools’ Mobile Literacy Lab at the First Friday event on September 7. Children and parents can enjoy the reading of the book on the Mobile Literacy Lab that evening as well.
In the days following our First Friday event, look for copies of the book throughout Dublin. Find a copy to read, sign your name inside the book, and share the book with a friend. Let’s keep the book discussion going.
About the book: "You've been planning night and day, and finally you've created the perfect trap! Now all you need to do is wait. Is this the year you'll finally catch the leprechaun? Find out with this fun and lively children's book. This book may even spark some ideas for your family in preparation for St. Patrick’s Day this spring."
Adam Wallace is a New York Times Bestselling author who loves writing stories that make children laugh and get excited about reading and drawing and writing and naps and music. Wallace now has more than 45 books published and out in the world, and he loves each one as if it were his own child.

Dublin: A City of Readers is a community partnership between Dublin City Schools, our surrounding faith-based communities, the Oconee Community Mentoring Association Bike Team, Laurens County-Dublin Retired Teachers Association, and businesses across Dublin. We invite all Dubliners to join in the fun with this community and literacy building campaign in Dublin.
