We are very happy to announce the incorporation of another Irish library to the NAPLE Sister Libraries program

Carlow County Library serves a population between 10.000 and 100.000 in the county of Carlow . Carlow County Library Service has a network of 4 branches across the county of Carlow. They are Carlow Central Library & HQ, Tullow Library, Bagenalstown, Library and Borris library.

Their mission is to enrich our communities and improve quality of life for its citizens and they do that by offering technologies, tools and resources to help people succeed.

They offer a national public library catalogue supported by a nationwide delivery service – items can be ordered online or in person and delivered quickly to the local library, for free.

They provide a range of services to our local schools (class visits, block loan facilities for teachers, events for schools…). Their current initiative with the schools in Carlow County Country is the Library Ninja Challenge. It aims to get children reading and talking about books and how useful the library is. Each participating school has been provided with books and promotional materials.
They deliver national programmes: Work Matters, Right to Read and Healthy Ireland.

If you want to know more about them, and what they are looking for just go to the Libraries Section and click on its name. You’ll find it under the Ireland tab. You’ll also find there a detailed description of their activities and the specific project they want to develop in the Sister Libraries Program. 

With this new incorporation, the program reaches:

125 European public libraries participating!
