Drop In - Your Library is Open!

Cavan Library Service are putting out a call to the public to drop in, relax, explore, connect, work or learn at their local library. Whether you used to visit regularly, or you’ve never been, we’re urging everyone to drop in to their local library and discover what’s on offer. “Your library is one of the few places you can spend time without spending a penny. So, please enjoy the space and services, take time out with a book or a newspaper; look into events and culture; meet friends and family; catch up on work or study, use the computers and Wi-fi. Drop in!



Cavan Library Service is delighted to announce that copies of 'County Cavan and the revolutionary years, 1918-22' are now available through your local library.  Originating in the successful online Centenaries Lecture Series 2020-2021, the essays in the book, edited by Dr Brendan Scott (Historian-In-Residence) provide many snapshots of Cavan during this period of great upheaval and change.  Copies of the book are free charge!

'County Cavan and the revolutionary years, 1918-22'  was officially launched on 4 November by Cathaoirleach of Cavan County Council, Cllr Clifford Kelly and will be available to view online from 7.30pm on Thursday 2nd December.



With so many items to borrow and space to read, relax, explore, work or learn at your local library, no wonder people are just dropping in! #DropIn
