This years “READ DL” will be launched at 7pm today, Thursday 6th March in the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny.

It will be launched to coincide with World Book Day.

READ DL, ‘One Book, One Community’ 2014 will launched by local storyteller and author, Joe Brennan. Joe’s book, ‘Donegal Folk Tales’, a newly published collection of some of Donegal’s best-loved legends and fairy tales has been selected for this years initiative

This community literacy project has grown out of the Read LK initiative, which was run in 2012 and 2013, involving schools and colleges, community groups, support services, health organisations and the library service.

In primary schools, senior classes have taken part in the project; while in post-primary schools first year students have been targeted. In the past participating groups and schools developed drama pieces, took part in book clubs and readings.
