The Minister for Rural & Community Development Michael Ring has officially launched an ambitious new five year strategy for public libraries.

Core elements of the strategy include the complete abolition of library fines and the roll out of the “My Open Library” initiative which will see a significant increase in library opening times in 100 of the 330 library branches around the country.

Swinford Library will be one of the first libraries in which My Open Library will be rolled out.

The 100 libraries nationally involved in the My Open Library initiative will see library opening hours increase from current normal working hours to: 8am-10pm, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
