The Book Factory

  • Book Factory 2014

The Book Factory is a unique book-making experience for children. It is a tailor-made installation, resident in the Model, Sligo during the Sligo Children’s Book Festival ( 5th -8th March 2015) and is an innovative, immersive and creative story production experience for young children. There are four areas to explore: an inspiration station, a studio, a library and a printing press.

The Book Factory also tours to different locations and this year children had the opportunity to create their own 8-page book at dlr LexIcon, the new Central Library and Cultural Centre in Dun Laoghaire, during family and schools workshops in February.

If you are a family or school group who would like to take part in the most creative production line Sligo has ever seen, email us at info@kidsown.ie or ph 071 91 24945 to book your place.

The Book Factory is created in partnership with the Industrial Design Department at Sligo IT.
