Bailieborough Library access

Bailieborough Library is a fully accessible building with a wide variety of library services available to all. Membership is free and anyone can join. The range of book stock is great but people don’t visit Bailieborough library just to borrow books!

Many visit to read newspapers and magazines, for free Internet access, to work and do their homework or just to meet up with friends. Information and reference services are in heavy demand.

The Arts Space is used for a yearly events programme which includes exhibitions, story telling, writer visits, workshops and reading group meetings – there is always something going on so check it out!
