Our Public Libraries 2022 – the new five year library strategy.
The Department for Rural and Community Development launched it’s new five year library strategy “Our Public Libraries 2022” last week. The strategy shows that Ireland’s 330 Libraries and 31 mobile libraries had just over 17 million visits last year and loaned out nearly 18 million items. Ireland’s libraries have over seven hundred thousand members and provide valuable community based services. Your library service has over twelve million books and online resources available to loan and use, and their on-line booking service makes it easy to search for and reserve books, audio books and DVD’s in advance. Libraries are also a great way to get on line with high speed internet access available even in rural areas.
With news emerging this week that Leitrim will be getting a County Librarian, perhaps now’s the time for you to become better acquainted with your Local library service.
