    Dear Aunty Litter,

    I went to Kilkenny on my holidays. We                             We had a tidy up day in our estate. We
    stayed in a cottage on a farm. Every                              all met on the green and picked up any
    day we fed the horses and foals with                              litter we saw and cleared away weeds.

    a grey squirrel on my bedroom window
    ledge. My mam said that the squirrel                              hard but it was good fun.

    We went for a picnic down by the river
    and we made sure that we did not leave                            clean ups so we can keep our area as
    any litter behind us!                                             tidy as possible.

    Your holiday on a farm sounds like good fun. Seeing the
    animals up close and being able to feed them is a great
    experience. You were lucky to have some good weather              Great things can be achieved when people work
    for a picnic and well done for cleaning up and leaving            together in a community. We all should have pride in

My Job: Rosemary Hetherington
        Children’s Librarian
Did you know that Dublin City Council is responsible for running the network of
twenty-one branch libraries and a mobile library service for Dublin city? We met up
recently with Rosemary Hetherington, a librarian in the Children’s Section of Dublin
City Public Libraries to talk to her about her job.

children’s books that are stocked in all
Dublin City Public Libraries. Book
selection is a very important part of her
job. She sees all new children’s books.
Reading as many books as possible as
well as book reviews in newspapers
and magazines helps Rosemary to
decide what book titles are bought for
each library. One of her best sources
