Bealtaine - a month of exciting Age Friendly Events in Kilkenny Library Service

Library LogoBealtine festival 2019
Kilkenny Library Service has announced a wide ranging programme of activities and events celebrating creativity as part of the Bealtaine Festival.
The National Bealtaine Festival running throughout May celebrates the arts and creativity as we age. The festival is coordinated by Age & Opportunity, who promote active and engaged living as we get older.

Kilkenny Library Service has recently developed a programme of FREE age friendly events to encourage people to come together socially and develop their creative side, and try something new with friends. Included in this is our Annual Bealtaine Programme, running through May.
Highlights include Music Sing-along in Callan, Cheese Making Demonstration in City Library, Alzheimer's Tea Day in Loughboy 2nd May, and The Six Mary's one woman show in Graiguenamanagh & Castlecomer, along with Reflexology, scrapbooking, and Board Games mornings in Loughboy and drop-in eBook Clinics in all branches.
"We are delighted to be involved in Bealtaine Festival again" comments County Librarian, Josephine Coyne. "With lots of exciting events focused on positivity, creativity and lifelong learning, these events also play an important social role in bringing people together in local and rural communities across the county."
