Watch: #Squeezeinaread in Leitrim this Friday 25th

Leitrim is joining the #squeezeinaread national campaign this Friday, February 25.

One minute, ten minutes, an hour, or more – it doesn’t matter how long you read for or what you read!

Why? Because taking some time for yourself to relax and do the things you enjoy (like reading) is important to help look after your mental wellbeing.

Take the pledge below and see how many minutes people all over Ireland will be reading for on February 25th.

Ireland Reads is a public libraries initiative, in partnership with Healthy Ireland, publishers, booksellers, authors and others.

Libraries all over Ireland have teamed up with publishers, booksellers, authors, book clubs and others for the campaign which is part of the government Healthy Ireland programme. A number of well-known campaign ambassadors are on board to help promote the campaign, including Marian Keyes, Joe Duffy, Colm Tóibín, Rick O’Shea, Liz Nugent and more. Find out what reading means to them and why they support the campaign at .

Libraries throughout Leitrim are taking part in Ireland Reads, on Friday, 25 February 2022.

Why not drop into your local library to find out about all that’s happening for Ireland Reads on Friday, 25 February or log onto  to take the pledge to squeeze in a read.
