Meath Library Service launches Toys, Technology and Training Initiative
Location
County-wide

Meath County Council Library Service is delighted to launch our specialised Toys, Technology and Training initiative. The collection is designed to offer support to children and adults with learning difficulties, disabilities or more significant needs. The toys and other resources can be accessed free of charge in branches throughout the county with the TTT membership card.

The collection was chosen by the staff of Meath County Council Library Service in partnership with therapists and other professionals working in the community. As part of the initiative, we will host an annual series of free lectures, recordings and workshops. These events offer further guidance, support and networking opportunities for parents, teachers and healthcare professionals.

Chief Executive of Meath County Council, Jackie Maguire said “this is a very worthwhile initiative and the resources being launched today will strengthen our delivery of an inclusive library service”. 

For up to date details of future talks and events relating to the TTT initiative please email us and ask to join our mailing list at libraryhq@meathcoco.ie. Attendance at all of the events is free of charge and open to everyone but advance booking is required.

The TTT initiative was part-funded by a grant from the Dormant Accounts Fund, a fund designed to support programmes that enhance the development of economically or socially marginalised persons and those with disabilities.
