Join in a special celebration of all that your local library can bring to you! 

BeLong | Bí Ann is an invitation to regular library users to re-engage with - and to non-users to explore - their local libraries, via podcast, online talks, fun facts, literature and animation. All activities will be online over four weeks, from 10th January - 7th February 2022.

During the pandemic, we have re-discovered the power of literature, music, art and culture as sources of entertainment and wellbeing. Brought to you by Dublin City Libraries and axis Ballymun and funded by the Dormant Accounts Fund, this project champions Dublin City Libraries as physical and digital spaces of learning, wellbeing and creativity.
