We are delighted to announce that Glanmire Library will open on June 9th for a phone, collect and return service only.

Borrowers can phone between 10pm and 2pm to request books and can collect between 2pm and 5pm.

We will take returns throughout the day but only at the door. Unfortunately for now, we will be unable to allow the public into the branch itself.

For those unable to come to the library, if you can nominate someone to call for books, please ring or email us and we can put titles aside for collection.

As always you can borrow eBooks, eMagazines, take an online course, learn a language or avail of AVA film streaming. this is all free with your library card.
