Public Libraries in Ireland are changing. These exciting changes will bring a bigger and better service. Library membership in all public libraries is now free to all.
This July, Waterford City & County Libraries, with 12 other participating library services around the country, are introducing a new computer system and creating a joint library catalogue. These changes will help us provide a better service to our library users.
- It will be easier to search and request items, and get recommendations, using the new shared library catalogue.
- There will be a much wider range of books and other items to choose from.
- Library members can borrow 12 items (including DVDs) for 3 weeks from any branch of the participating public libraries.
- There is no charge to reserve up to 12 items at any time.
- Books and DVDs can be returned to any of the 176 branches of the participating library services.
- Reminders will be sent by email, to let you know that your books and DVDs are due back, that items you requested are ready for collection, and to let you know about library events.
- You can reserve and renew books and other items 24/7 using our online service.
