Chat to the Book Doctor via ZOOM, consult on your favourite reads and leave with a prescription for your next book which you can take to your local bookshop or library!

Children’s Books Ireland Book Doctors give guidance about books to children and their families.

Book Clinic LogoThese clinics will be presented on Zoom and each consultation will be 15 minutes in duration per child. The Book Doctor will have time to meet 8 children over the course of the morning so places are strictly limited and will be offered on a first-come, first served basis. By booking a ticket you will receive one 15 minute consultation for one child and we will confirm the start time of your consultation (within the event time of 10am-12pm). A parent or guardian will be required to be in the same room as the child during the Zoom call.

As places are so limited it is very important that you arrive into the Zoom meeting on time for your session. Read more
