Fingal Libraries celebrate the 25th Anniversary

Fingal Libraries celebrate the 25th Anniversary

Hello everyone!

It’s week 4 of our 25th Anniversary Event in Fingal Libraries.

Hot off the press is week 4 of our unique, commemorative blog series, celebrating Fingal County Council’s 25th Anniversary. The blog can be found here: http://www.fingal.ie/blog/?p=3377.

In today’s instalment, Laura Flanagan, Fingal Libraries staff, offers insight into the public library movement of early 1900s Ireland. This was an exciting era for public libraries, which flourished throughout the country especially in rural areas such as Fingal county. Curious as to how this all came about? Then check out the subheadings: Public Libraries (Ireland) Act, 1902, and Mr. Andrew Carnegie.

Ever wondered what your local Fingal library got up to in the first two decades of the 1900s? Well, if intrigue is your thing, or you enjoy a chuckle, then look under the subheadings: A Library by any other Name, Newspaper Roomsand Libraries for the People – Literature for Minds and Morals.

Would, perhaps, the ‘Top 100’ books at the turn of the 20th century rouse your interest? Then click on the image at the top of the article to view what was thought the definite list in which to entertain and educate people of 1900s Ireland. You’ll be sure to find some compelling entries!

We hope you enjoy!
