From Monday 8th June, in line with phase 2 of the Government’s Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business, Libraries can now commence reopening.


Initially, library spaces will be restricted to library staff and from Tuesday 16th June the library service will arrange for the safe return of library items and the implementation of a safe lending service on a ‘Contact and Collect’ basis.


The services will be in operation at Ballaghaderreen, Boyle, Castlerea and Roscommon Town Library.


Online services will continue to be available as the library services move through the re-opening phases.
