Wexford Public Library Services
A BETTER LIBRARY SERVICE
Wexford Public Libraries is joining with all the other public library services in Ireland to create one countrywide library catalogue, using a shared computer system. Phase I is for Wexford Public Libraries with libraries in Dublin City, Fingal, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, South Dublin and Kildare county councils.
As part of this project, member privileges, fines and charges are being standardised nationally. See more details
There may be some disruption to normal service while the new computer system is being introduced.
We are sorry for the inconvenience. Please be patient with us
