2022 saw the largest ever number of approved applications for the Languages Connect School Library Funding Scheme, with 770 schools signed up. The initiative, now in its fourth year, has proven to be a huge success. Over 1,439 schools across Ireland have availed of the scheme since its inception in 2019.

The initiative encourages students and pupils to maintain their home languages by making books and literature in heritage languages readily accessible in schools across the country. Available to both primary and post primary schools, the scheme recognises the integral role home languages play in a student’s identity and heritage, while also supporting their literacy and language skills.
