The Love Leabhar Gaeilge scheme operates through independent bookstores and libraries and each season we promote a new collection of both children and adult Irish books through scheduled marketing campaigns and participants of the scheme get additional online exposure on our social media platforms, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
