The National Library Open Day will be held on this Saturday, February 29th and this is part of a nationwide campaign to promote the varied services available at all libraries across Ireland.

In Castleisland there will be free guided tours of the facility here at 11am and 3pm on the day and staff will give talks on all the services available.

First Ever Open Day

Libraries around the country are doing likewise and taking part in the first ever National Library Open Day.

Libraries are open most days of course but on Saturday 29th they have issued a special invitation to everyone in the country to come in and see everything that’s on offer.

If it’s been a while since you’ve been in your local library, you might be surprised at what you can find there!

Open Community Spaces

Libraries are open community spaces with lots going on for everyone of all ages and interests. Come along to your local library on the open day to get a taste of the clubs, classes, exhibitions, activities and more on offer at your library.

Castleisland Library is open from 10am to 5pm Tuesday to Saturday. Tel: 066 71 63403. E-Mmail
