Your Library - Take a closer look
A NEW national
advertising campaign is asking everyone in Inishowen
to take a closer look at what their local library has to offer.
Donegal County Library Service and all three public
libraries in Inishowen are joining in the campaign,
which is running for the next four weeks across
radio, cinema, TV and social media. The aim of the
campaign is to encourage people of all ages to join
and use the library.
Pick up and drop off at any library:
Since 2016 library members are able to pick up and
drop off books at any public library in Ireland.
Perfect for weekends away or students away from
Speaking about the
campaign, Eileen Burgess, County Librarian and
Culture Divisional Manager with Donegal County
Council said, “People who use the library regularly
know how great it is. But there are those who
haven’t been in a while or don’t visit very often.
“We want everyone to take a closer look at their
library, to see beyond what they thought it was, and
find out about all the amazing services we offer –
librarians take the starring roles in the campaign;
the libraries in the adverts are real libraries and
the people in the advert are real librarians.
At present, around 16% of the Irish population are
library members. The ‘Our Public Libraries’ strategy
aims to increase that to 30% by 2022.
