‘Browse & Borrow’ hours now available in Clones, Carrickmacross & Monaghan

Monaghan, Clones & Carrickmacross Libraries have re-opened to the public to ‘Browse & Borrow’ but we’ve had to make some changes.
Over the past number of years we have worked hard to make our libraries Community spaces where people could come and spend time browsing our stock, using our computers, taking part in classes, bookclubs, Storytime activities & more, We have really missed seeing everyone over the past few months and we can’t wait for our doors to reopen to the public tomorrow BUT we have had to make quite a few changes. Alot of these changes mean that the libraries must be very functional places for the foreseeable future. Instead of inviting you in to spend hours in our libraries, we must ask you to stay no more than 30 mins. Instead of inviting you to make use of our PCs and Printers, we would ask you to use it only if necessary. Instead of making time to chat with you on the library floor and help you find exactly what you want, we will instead remain behind screens and offer directions and guidance on how to find items on your own. These changes won’t come easy to our Library staff who always strive to provide the best service possible but they are under strict instruction to follow Health & Safety guidelines which aim to keep both you and us safe. Please be patient.
Our Home delivery service remains in place, as does our Contact and Collect Service.

Browse and Borrow time will be from 2-5pm and 6-8pm on Mondays, 2-5pm from Tuesday to Friday.

Contact and Collect will be available from 10am – 1pm.

We hope to see you soon!
