Roscommon County Council: Library Services

Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries.

Roscommon County Council: Library Services provides for the cultural, education, recreation, information and learning needs of people of all ages throughout the county and strives to provide and develop a comprehensive, quality, modern and accessible service. It acts as centre for knowledge and learning, as a resource for culture, reading and the imagination, as a resource for children and young people, as an access to information communication technologies, as an important archival repository, as a local studies research centre and as a vital community facility and public space for a range of activities.. The Library Services is an important supporting strategy under the economic, cultural and social development of the county.

The service is operated through branch locations at Roscommon, Castlerea, Ballaghaderreen, Boyle and Strokestown. Strokestown and Ballaghaderreen are currently closed for renovations. The Mobile Library Service will visit Ballaghaderreen, Elphin and Strokestown. The Library Service also continues to deliver and develop a substantial Archives and Local Studies reference and research facility at the County Library.
