Fingal 25th Event Blog Series at Fingal Libraries

Fingal 25th Event Blog Series at Fingal Libraries

Fingal libraries continue to go Stark, RAVEN, mad!!

We have now reached week 6 of our unique, commemorative blog series, celebrating Fingal County Council’s 25th Anniversary. The blog can be found here: http://bit.ly/31mEB86

In today’s instalment, Laura Flanagan, Fingal Libraries staff, takes a look at the mid- to late 1900s in Ireland and the development of the public library movement.

During this period society in Ireland was rapidly changing, both in terms of ideology and morals, which impacted how libraries responded to the communities they served. Curious to know more, then look under the subheading: The Times They Are a-Changin’

1947 was a defining year in the public libraries movement and welcomed The Library Council. Find out more under: An Chomhairle Leabharlanna (The Library Council)

This post-war era proved to be a challenging time for public libraries as financial assistance was much sought after, but often directed into other public services. To find out more, check out the subheading: Financial Assistance & Future Ambitions

Thank you to Laura Flanagan for her continued work on this intriguing, once-off blog series.
