Still Playing Central Role In The Lives Of The Tipperary People

DESPITE the overwhelming advances of technology and social media the local library still plays a central part in the lives of Tipperary people.

Indeed, in 2011 Tipperary Libraries saw a 30 per cent increase in visitors, bringing yearly visits to an astounding 660,700.

Membership also increased last year with approximately 45,000 adults and children regularly attending one of the twelve branches in the county with the numbers of books issued also increasing to just shy of half a million.

Tipperary Libraries operate a network of twelve public library branches through the county offering a friendly community service which educates, entertains and helps to improve the lives of all members - Borrisokane, Cahir, Carrick-on-Suir, Cashel, Clonmel, Cloughjordan, Fethard, Killenaule, Nenagh, Roscrea, Templemore, Thurles and Tipperary Town.
