Update – 21st October 2020
Library Branch Services
In line with the national move to Level 5 restrictions, all branch libraries will be closed from Thursday October 22nd for a period of six weeks. During this time, online services will still be available.
Please contact your local library authority or consult their website homepages to find out what is happening in your area.
Contact details and web links can be found here - https://www.librariesireland.ie/find-your-local-library
Unfortunately, you cannot place reservations on the library catalogue during this period. We will update when this facility is available again.
With regard to items you have on loan, there is no need to worry. All items will be automatically renewed. Additionally, there are no late fines. We will be delighted to see you and your books back in our branches when we open again. Please contact your local Library Authority for local arrangements.
If you have a library card you can start reading e-books and listening to e-audio books straightaway, as explained here. If you don't have a library card, read on!
Library Cards Expiring
We have renewed all library cards that were due to expire in the near future so hopefully that won’t be a problem. If your card has expired please contact your local library authority or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to the disruption of library services by Coronavirus (COVID-19), you do not need to visit your local library to join before being able to use online services listed at https://www.librariesireland.ie/elibrary
Just fill out the online form. You'll get a temporary library number and you can set up a library PIN. With those, you'll be able to access the online services at www.librariesireland.ie/elibrary straightaway.
If you have any queries or difficulty logging in or problems with your registration or PIN, please be sure to open a ticket or email: email@example.com and a member of the support team will do their best to get you up and running as soon as possible. You can also contact your local branch by email– they will do their best to help you.
