Exciting new chapter as Waterford libraries host first ever National Open Day
It’s not just all about reading tomes under hushed tones anymore – Waterford’s Libraries are about much more than that.
This Saturday Waterford Library Services will use the first ever National Library Open Day to invite people to come and see what their local library has to offer.
Libraries across the county will host a select showcase of the services they provide. Friendly staff will be on hand to show you around in-library and how to make the most of the various online services.
Waterford’s libraries provide a free, accessible service with something for everyone, from books, dvds, and music; free classes, clubs, events and activities for all ages; online courses and language learning; study spaces and relaxation areas; reading and literacy programmes and support schemes; business supports; health and wellness programmes; and local history and culture resources.
Some of the highlights of this weekend’s events include Dungarvan Library hosting a drop-in storytime with Liz Kelly at noon for children aged 0-5 years, while Ardkeen Library will have the monthly visit from Babywearing Ireland Sling Meet at 10:15am.
