Your Library Service is Changing...


Your Library Service is Changing... 

Public Libraries in Ireland are working together to create one 

joint library catalogue, using a shared computer system.

In the coming weeks Cavan County Council Library Service will introduce these changes

which will help us provide a better service to library users.


What does it mean for you?

  • You will have a much wider range of books, audio books and DVDs to choose from.

  • You will be able to borrow 12 items for 3 weeks.

  • It will be easier to search and request items, using the new national shared library catalogue.

  • You will be able to reserve and renew items 24/7 using our online service.

  • There will be a reduction in fines. You will be charged a fine of five cent (€0.05) per day for any item not returned or renewed on time. As always you will be able to renew your items online at www.cavanlibrary.ie, by telephone or in person at a branch.

  • You will receive an email reminder  3 days before your items are due back.  Please register your email address with your local library.

  • If you wish to receive overdue notices by SMS text message you will have to log into your own library account online to ‘opt in’ to this service.

  • You will not need a new library card but we ask you to please bring your card each time you visit. This will help you get the most out of our new system.

To accommodate this upgrade there will be library closuresWe will keep you informed in your branch and online. 

Finally there may be some teething problems as we introduce our new computer system and make these changes – please bear with us!

Thank you for your patience.
