IF YOU'RE planning on checking out books in your local library soon for summer holidays then there may not be a happy ending.

The doors of five libraries in the county will be shut when they are normally open.

Glin Library will be closed from Wednesday, June 1 to Friday, June 10. Askeaton Library on Friday, June 3. Cappamore Library from Tuesday, June 7 to Friday, June 17. Galbally and Kilfinane libraries will be closed Tuesday June 7 to Friday, June 10.
