We are proud to introduce The IBBY Collection for Young People with Disabilities as it comes to Ireland for the first time!
This collection gathers outstanding examples of international books for and about young people with disabilities. We are delighted to bring to Ireland the 2017 edition, which contains 50 titles in over 20 languages and includes specialised formats such as Braille, PCS and Sign Language and tactile and textile books. The books are for all ages and include titles from Turkey, Japan, Sweden, Ireland and beyond.
The exhibition will visit DCU Cregan Library, Drumcondra Campus in from January 29 and into early February, and will be formally launched by Liz Page, Executive Director of IBBY International, on Friday 2nd February at 6.30pm to coincide with IBBY Ireland’s Annual Lecture (have you booked your ticket to this free event on our Eventbrite page yet?). It will subsequently welcome visitors in various venues on the island of Ireland between February and April, from Belfast to Wexford via South Dublin. All details TBA soon!
Each leg of the exhibition will also include hands-on activities from story time to illustration and writing workshops facilitated by local librarians and writers and illustrators such as Children’s Laureate PJ Lynch and more to be announced.
The exhibition is free and open to all!
