Events in Your Library

Easter Colouring Competition

Date and time: 19 March 2020 @ 00:00 to 07 April 2020 @ 00:00

We've found there is nothing quite like the thoughts of winning an Easter Egg to get children busy with colouring pencils! So here is our Easter Colouring Competition to engage children in a little bit of creativity over the coming weeks.

Our libraries are closed to the public for the moment but entries can be sent by post to 

 Johnston Central Library (Cavan), Cootehill Library or Bailieborough Library

Or if you need ANOTHER excuse for a walk and you live close to any of the libraries, you can pop your entry through the letterbox.

Children must be members of the library to enter but DON'T WORRY if your child is not a member. 

Temporary membership is available - Sign Up today

By JOINING THE LIBRARY you will also have access to our brilliant Online Library which has endless opportunities for keeping young minds active with free access to eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and much more!

The closing date is 7th April 2020  to make sure we have time to judge all the entries and get the yummy Easter Eggs to the winners in time for Easter Sunday!


There is three age categories:

              3 - 5 yr olds                                          6 - 8 yr olds                                     9 - 12 yr olds




Date and time: 19 March 2020 @ 00:00 to 20 April 2020 @ 00:00

In line with the State’s COVID-19 response, all Cavan libraries are closed until Monday 20th April. 

Please note that all Library Events are suspended until further notice.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused and we look forward to resuming our Progamme of Events as soon as possible.
