librarybuildings.ie aims to provide comprehensive and readily accessible information about local authority public library buildings in Ireland. The project is concentrating on two facets of public library design: libraries recently opened and libraries in heritage buildings. Public libraries in heritage buildings and buildings of architectural merit which have received grant-aid have also been included.
Libraries Development LGMA manages librarybuildings.ie.
The project has been funded by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government.
* In 1998, the Minister for the Environment and Local Government, Mr Noel Dempsey T.D. launched Branching Out: A New Public Library Service. This database gives details of all libraries co-funded by local authorities and the Minister under the Branching Out programme to date.
