Library Ireland Week 2015, November 16th-22nd

Library Ireland Week 2015 runs from November 16th-22nd. Every year the library service celebrates its worth during this week, a week that raises the profile of libraries and information service professionals and gives libraries and information services the opportunity to showcase their resources, facilities, events, contacts and services through different programs and events. The theme of this year’s Library Ireland Week is that of books as a portal into a world of ideas and opportunities: a world of imagination and creativity, of study and travel, of new possibilities in all areas of life. There will be a host of activities taking place in libraries to celebrate the week that will reflect the multi-faceted nature of library and information services across the country.

Clare County Library invites you to visit one of its fifteen branch libraries throughout the county and rediscover what is available to you from your local library service. You’ll discover a whole world of books, CDs, DVDs and more. Surf the internet or check your email at our free internet access points. You could begin tracing your family tree at the Local Studies Centre. Get information about all of the free events that take place at your library throughout the year for both adults and children including story time sessions, arts and craft sessions, free Internet classes, workshops, author visits, exhibitions and much more. You may even join one of the many clubs including children's, adult and teenage book clubs, movie clubs and scrabble clubs. Membership is free for pre-school, primary, secondary and third level students and for senior citizens. Remember, it is never too early or too late to join your local library! A whole new experience awaits you!
