Offaly Libraries has eight branch libraries across Offaly, and welcomes everyone to use its wide range of services. It provides welcoming and accessible spaces and services to the people of Offaly in their pursuit of knowledge, culture, inspiration and recreation. Offaly Libraries enriches the lives of Offaly’s diverse communities by providing free and equitable access to its services.

List of Services Available

It is free to join Offaly Libraries, and you can do so online or in your local branch. To join, all you need is photographic ID and proof of address and, for those aged under 18, a parent or guardian must provide these items.

Offaly Libraries offers a range of services. Our branches offer on-site access to books, audiobooks, computers, printing, scanning, programmes and events.

Our Digital Library is open 24/7, and you can access eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, eNewspapers, and music and film streaming, along with coding, encyclopedias and book recommendations.

Wheelchair Access

All eight of our library branches are accessible by wheelchair.

Before this website came along, we weren’t sure what services were available locally and how to access them. It’s great to now see them all listed in one place with lots of useful information and contact details.
