Celebrate Culture Night with Fingal Libraries

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Fingal Libraries are delighted to switch on Culture Night with the rest of Ireland on September 21 with events expanding across two branches.

Returning for another year, the Blanchardstown Library Culture Night celebrations are set to be bigger and better, with magic, music, and a showcase of local talent.

As in previous years, the evening will open with the presentation of Summer Stars medals and certificates to our dedicated young borrowers, who have read eight or more books during the summer. This will kick off at 5:45pm, before Reuben the Entertainer returns for some comedy magical fun at 6:15pm. Reuben has helped us celebrate many momentous occasions in the past – most recently, he performed at our STEMfest science event – and he is always a hit with parents and children alike.

€8 Million Investment in Library Service

Friday, September 14, 2018

Minister Ring has approved a major investment package for digital services and facilities in public libraries. The almost €8 million investment comprises of approximately €6 million from Minister Ring’s Department and a further €2 million contribution from Local Authorities.

Fingal County Libraries will receive €476,000 from the Department, which was the second highest grant awarded to a local authority by the Department. The remaining €235,000 will come from Fingal County Council itself.
This investment will enhance ICT infrastructure, create new meeting spaces with state of the art technology and provide dedicated digital learning suites. The new facilities and services will attract new users of all ages to our public libraries. This funding will transform our public library service across the country, benefitting 309 libraries, 10 of which are in Fingal,.
