South Dublin Libraries

Local Councillor Emer Higgins has confirmed the approval of €300,000 towards a library to service the villages in West Dublin.

“I am delighted to confirm that South Dublin County Council is planning to develop a library to serve the villages of Brittas, Saggart, Rathcoole and Newcastle. In December, Councillors approved funding of €300,000 to commission a feasibility study and report that will recommend a potential site and design,” said Cllr. Emer Higgins.

“We haven’t made a decision on the location of the library. The library would need to serve the communities of Newcastle, Rathcoole, Saggart and Brittas, so we’ll need to find a location that’s accessible. Already I’ve had a huge volume of contacts from residents and I’ll be letting the Council know their feedback to help shape plans for this facility,” continued Cllr. Emer Higgins.

“Today, libraries are home to much more than books; they are computer and internet access points and host many fun activities, cultural, educational and family events. A library would be a great addition to the local community,” concluded Cllr. Emer Higgins.
