Longer opening hours at Donegal libraries 28.08.15

Donegal County Council has announced longer opening hours for local libraries in the county.
The new hours will be implemented at all local libraries from September 7.
The new schedule of opening hours will see the introduction of ‘Scheduled Time’, ‘Open Door Time’ and ‘All The Time’.
Scheduled Time: Dedicated hours and support for a wide range of programmes for specific community organisations and school groups. An important part of the service is about meeting the changing needs of communities by providing programmed events and activities for all ages. These activities include bookclubs, summer reading programmes, rhyme time sessions, local history talks, exhibitions, art workshops and computer classes.
Open Door Time: These libraries will still continue to provide accessible services to all members of the public. Opening hours will be extended in the morning in many of the local libraries across the county.
All the Time: Donegal Library Service also provides a 24 hour eService. There are currently over 400,000 items in stock to borrow from libraries in Donegal. A quick search of the online catalogue will tell you what is available. In addition, Donegal Library Service provides a digital catalogue and you can download eBooks, audio books, eMagazines free of charge. The library also offers access to a range of national and international papers online as well as online dictionaries and encyclopaedias for adults and children.
"A space is just a space until it is used by the people it is created for – you," said the Donegal Library Service in a statement.
"So come along and visit and sample what your local library has to offer.
