Cappamore Library will be closed from Tuesday, June 7 to Friday, June 17
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.
All libraries will be closed on Saturday, June 4 and Monday, June 6 for the bank holiday weekend.
