Sligo library to remain on rolling closures


The Department of Housing, Planning, Community & Local Government informed Sligo County Council on 3rd October that it is ‘prepared to sanction in full for the recruitment of all six staff requested.’ The sanction is for four permanent staff and two contract staff for a period of six months.

CLOSURES: Sligo's main library in Stephen's Street will face rolling closures along with Ballymote and Tubbercurry.

A public notice concerning the recruitment of the additional Library staff will be placed shortly.

As the recruitment process will take some time, a series of temporary ‘rolling closures’ affecting Sligo’s Branch Libraries in Sligo, Ballymote and Tubbercurry will continue pending the appointment of the additional staff.

Sligo County Council regrets the ongoing disruption to the service, but can reassure Library Members and the general public that full services will resume once the staff have been recruited.

In light of rolling closures, revised opening hours for Branch Libraries until mid December 2016 are listed below, for review at that time.

Please note that the Mobile Library and Enniscrone Library services will operate as normal.
