A great range of services being offered by libraries under Level 3

Many people will be delighted to learn that some library services are to resume under the Level 3 restrictions. 

A threefold approach to the resumption of library services will include a browse and borrow service in 5 of the county's libraries. Customers will be able to physically enter a participating library for 15 minutes to browse through the stock and select their books and DVDS.

There will not be a photocopying service offered to customers, at this point. Computer, research and study facilities are not available, at present. 

From Friday, December 4 the Browse and Borrow service will be available in the following 5 libraries: Central Library Letterkenny, Leabharlann Phobail Ghaoth Dobhair, Buncrana Community Library, Twin Towns Community Library, and Bundoran Community Library.


Contact and Collect Service is a way for members to order books and then collect them from their local library when they are available.
