Thanks for bearing with us as we work to resolve teething problems with our new online system. Your library service now has its own online catalogue where you can search and reserve items and log in and manage your account. The online catalogue for Dublin City members is https://dublincity.spydus.ie
We provide books for children that deal with a range of social and personal issues. These books act as soft introductions to complex issues and are written in a way that young children can understand easily. The books initiate social awareness for children and allow them to understand themselves, others, and the world around them.
