Library Ireland Week takes place from Sunday December 1st to 7th 2019. The theme of this year’s week is “Libraries Inspire”. The week, which is organised by the Library Association of Ireland, raises the profile of libraries and information service professionals and showcases their resources, facilities, events and services through dedicated programmes and events.
Throughout the week public libraries, special libraries, business libraries, health libraries, law libraries, academic libraries, prison libraries and government libraries all around Ireland will celebrate by showcasing their unique resources, running events and engaging in a nationwide social media campaign.
Library Ireland Week is a celebration of libraries and the people who work in libraries throughout Ireland celebrating their dedication, commitment and influence on the individuals and communities they serve. This year the theme focuses on how libraries in Ireland have the ability to inspire their communities, to foster learning and education, encourage creativity, promote our country’s heritage and provide places of refuge from a hectic world.

Events around the country are detailed via our Library Ireland Week website www.libraryirelandweek.ie.
