Libraries Ireland is a shared library management system which allows anyone with a public library card borrow and reserve items from any public library in the Republic of Ireland. It is free to join and all 30 library authorities are part of the service.

At your library you can access:

  • books from/to any library in the country
  • books, ebooks, audio books, DVDs, literacy supports
  • at home to online newspapers and magazines
  • 400 eLearning and 80 online language courses
  • support for job seekers
  • facilities for small businesses
  • community meeting facilities
  • health and wellbeing supports from Healthy Ireland

If a resource is unavailable in your local library, and is available in another library, then you can request it through the interlibrary loan service. You can search the online catalogues and websites of Irish public libraries and request to borrow through the interlibrary loan service.
