Mayo Library Development Plan 2017-2021, call for submissions

Mayo Library wants to Hear from You!


What do you like about your Library? Do you have suggestions on how the library service could be improved? If you do not use your local Library why not?

The County Library would like to hear from you. Mayo County Library invites you to tell us what you think of our service. We are seeking your views on the service today and your views on how you would like to see it develop.  

The library is working on a 5-year development programme, which will inform the development and the direction of the service until 2021. We are  inviting members of the public and interested groups to give their views on the future direction of our service, to tell us what you think of your local library and to let us know how the library can be developed to meet your and your community’s needs.

County Librarian Austin Vaughan stated “The previous plan covered the period 2011to 2015 and achieved success in a number of areas: free membership, the introduction of eBooks and downloadable audio books, a musical instrument lending service, enhanced children’s services and continued collection and preservation of the written, photographic and oral culture of the county. It also saw the construction and opening of the new library and Cultural centre in Swinford. So to continue this work we are asking everyone to have your say in the future of Mayo Library Service. We need your help to make our service better.”

Cathoirleach of Mayo County Council Al McDonnell said “Mayo County Council recognizes that the public library network is at the centre of communities and submissions are invited from individuals, groups and organizations as to how you wish to see the library service develop in the years ahead. As with the previous plan, of particular interest are submissions from infrequent/non-users of the service. The services of the public library are provided on the basis of equality of access for all.”

You can make submissions until February 28th  2017 by:
