Covid-19 restrictions update

Over the coming months, Richmond Barracks in Inchicore will be used as St. James’s Hospital vaccination centre for patients of the hospital so the library will remain closed. 

Libraries across the city are now open for browse and borrow or call and collect service.  Home delivery and online services are also continuing.
