Library hours restored
ENNISKERRY library will again be open four days each week, from this week onwards.
The library had been reduced to two days per week, due to staff shortages, but that has now been addressed. Sinead Murdiff-Mulligan will be the new branch librarian in Enniskerry. The opening hours will be 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 6.30 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday; 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
Councillor Christopher Fox said: ‘It’s great to have the full hours back again. Thanks to the library users in Enniskerry for their patience. Also, having consulted with staff and public, we have decided to open on Saturday mornings instead of Saturday afternoon. It was felt that people are out and about more on Saturday mornings and that the morning opening will suit them better. We all wish Sinead every success in her new post.’
Wicklow County Librarian, Brendan Martin said, ‘ The public library service is now a national service, with the public able to borrow items from the library’s online catalogue from any of the 300+ libraries in Ireland and have it delivered directly to their particular library, twice per week. There has been great public appreciation of this new, national initiative. Also, if you would prefer to download an e-book to your device, learn a language online, or read our online magazines & newspapers, just ask library staff for a PIN and show you how to avail of these free services.’
The Summer Reading Stars programme is still running in libraries throughout county Wicklow. If your child would like to get involved in this initiative, just call into Enniskerry library, or any of the other libraries in county Wicklow.
