Our Public Libraries 2022 – Inspiring, Connecting and Empowering Communities

Minister for Rural and Community Development Michael Ring, TD launched the new 5 year Strategy for public libraries Our Public Libraries 2022 – Inspiring, Connecting and Empowering Communities on Thursday, 14 June 2018.

While Public libraries remain very popular and valued among local communities, just 16% of the population are active library members.

There is clear potential to encourage significantly greater use of libraries and bring membership levels closer to those in other similar EU countries. The overall aim of the Strategy is to increase active membership from 16% of the population to 30% by end-2022.
