My First 5 Little Library

First 5 Little LibraryThe Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth working with the National Library Service, will initiate an action called My Little Library. In this action over 61,000 4 & 5-year-olds who are going to school in September will be invited to their local library to pick up a bag of books and join the library.

First 5 My Little Library will offer a book bag with books and resources to every 4 and 5 year old going to school in September. The children will be invited through their ELC or special pre-school.

The objective is that all children starting school this year will be a member of their local library and will have storybooks in their home. This initiative is a huge undertaking and we especially want to make sure that all children living in disadvantaged get their book bag and join their local library.Sponsors' Logos

Choosing A Strong Password

Chains of words, make passwords easy to remember and harder to crack.


To create a password that meets our strength requirements, it’s recommended to use a mix of at least three random words along with a number (not a birthday or 123 etc., just random) and one or more symbols and capitals, but don't capitalize the first letters of the words, e.g.:

  • mower-speaK5shadow
  • table?taPe748goNe.

This password style might not be very common, and it will be much more difficult for computers/bots to crack. It also allows for your passwords to be memorized more easily. Though a password vault may help with that.
