Li­brary hours re­stored

Bray People - - NEWS -

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.
