Talk of Baltinglass Library making the unusual move of relocating to the Courthouse appears to be well founded. This is due to happen in and around April of this year. It will mean that the library will move out from its current ground floor location (the old Heritage Centre) to the Courthouse while retaining the children’s library and internet area as they are. There will be lift access from the ground floor and access from the old stone steps.
The move was prompted by the recent proposals to redevelop the Courthouse into a co-working space, a community space and an exhibit of the Courthouse cellars. Wicklow County Council has made the decision to take over the Courthouse as the library and the current library area will then be used as the co-working space.
If you would like to have your say about this move, send a message on the Facebook page ‘Baltinglass Courthouse’ or write to County Librarian, Wicklow County Council, Cou
