Post Primary School Service

Your local library provides a wide range of resources and activities which strongly support post-primary schools in developing student’s literacy, numeracy, creativity and communication skills.

We also have a dedicated Post-Primary Schools Library service which is administered from Ashbourne Library.

Your partner library branch can be found here. 

The Range of Library Services offered to Post-Primary Schools are:

  • Class visits to your library branch
    Your local library will accommodate class visits from your school to the library arranged locally in advance.
     
  • A teacher’s card made available to every teacher in the school
    Each post-primary teacher in your school is entitled to receive a teacher’s card, on request, from your library service. The card enables a teacher to borrow items for his/her class.
     
  • A presentation at the school on the library services may be available for students and staff
    We can provide a presentation on the library services, on request, at your local library or at your school to teachers, pupils or parents.
