Ballyfermot Library will close early, at 5pm instead of the usual 8pm on Thursday 20 June. Dublin City Libraries would like to apologise to library users for the inconvenience. 


The story starts here

Once upon a time in a land far far way (1884 in Thomas Street and Capel Street to be precise) Dublin's first two municipal public libraries were opened. And now, 150 years later, you're using QR codes and phones to open our website.
To show just how far we've come, we’re inviting you to check out our ebooks, audiobooks, eMagazines and eNewspapers. All for free through BorrowBox.
Whether you're already a member, or new to our libraries, everyone is welcome to explore our fantastic eResources.
