Clara Library

Following the announcement from Government, that the entire country is to be elevated to level 5 of Recovery and Resilience 2020-2021: Plan for Living with Covid-19, it is not possible to visit Offaly Libraries for browsing, PC appointments or Contact and Collect Services at this time. Our extensive Digital Library and other online services are available as usual.

There are no longer fines on library items and you are not expected to return books during the lockdown period, so please hold onto any items you currently have on loan and return them when the library reopens.

Offaly Libraries will continue to provide access to extensive free digital resources and online programmes during this period.
