Covid Opening

Monaghan County Libraries are currently operating under current Covid guidelines.  As a result, we have made the decision to alter our opening hours  and capacity to reflect the need for social distancing & additional cleaning.  We have also had to curtail our study spaces and limit access to our Public PCs.  In our smaller branches you will notice that browsing is by appointment only.

Please review the opening hours carefully to avoid disappointment. 

Ballybay Branch Library is our smallest branch library and has limited capacity for social distancing therefore browsing is by pre-booked appointment only.   A ‘Contact & collect’ is also available.  Please contact Library staff to arrange an appointment or discuss your reading preferences for contactless collection.  Monthly Home Delivery is available for vulnerable people on request.

Phonelines will be open to arrange appointments/Contact & Collect on Wednesday & Thursdays from 10am – 1pm.
