Communiversity - free university course at your library

StudyingOn Thursday 29th June 2017 the participants of the Communiversity  programme took a trip out to the University of Ireland at Maynooth to receive their well earned certificates in the august surrounds of Renehan Hall.

The Communiversity initiative is a free university course held locally in libraries. The Dublin City Public Libraries branches of Coolock, Ballyfermot, Dolphin’s Barn and Walkinstown facilitated an ever expanding programme. The day in Maynooth brought together friends, family, tutors and administrators to celebrate the success of this brilliant initiative.
