Work Matters at Your Local Library
Through the Work Matters national library initiative, Dublin City Libraries provides business and employment support
Do you have a business idea but don’t know where to start? Do you have a business you want to grow?
Are you looking for a job or itching to change career but lack direction? If this is you, your local library can help.
The Work Matters service at your library is a perfect place to explore, research and learn new skills.
There is free access to WiFi, and all library branches have public PCs that can be booked. Several branches have laptops and tablets that can be borrowed to use in the library. All branches have printing, scanning and copying facilities.
Library membership is free and gives you access to books, magazines, ebooks/magazines, and hundreds of online learning courses.
Library staff have created a recommended reading list of business and employment books to get you started.
Library Blogs highlight useful employment and business related resources.
As part of Work Matters at the library, business and employment events are regularly hosted by library branches.
