About the County Library

The County Library, Tallaght, which reopened in April 2008 following a major refurbishment programme, is in the heart of the cultural quarter of the Tallaght Town Centre, which includes the Civic Theatre, the Big Picture and Rua Red Art Centre. The Library is located adjacent to the Square Shopping Centre and at the terminus of the Luas Red Line. 

In keeping with our service commitment to promote accessibility for all citizens, access to the building is facilitated by automatic doors and movement within the building is facilitated by a lift and a ramp.  The library provides a wide range of stock in a variety of formats including large print books, talking books on CD and online access to our download zone. The library counters and the conference room have a loop hearing system. We are currently reviewing assistive technologies - hardware and software - with a view to updating what was previously offered so please note that this facility is not currently available.. Both counters have low-level sections. An accessible toilet is available. Some tactile signage is provided on both the ground floor and on the upper floor. The library operates a Home Delivery Service for people who are unable to visit the library. 


The County Library is a light filled, spacious and customer-orientated building which provides a large and up-to-date book stock, free state of the art computer faculties, self service terminals, printing and photocopying systems, a digital training and a conference suite, a teen zone, a children’s library and a local studies area, a download zone where customers can download audio books directly to their  mp3 player or iPod from our award winning on-line service and assistive technologies for people who have visual or reading difficulties. The County Library delivers open and welcoming access to leisure, information and educational opportunities

The multi award winning County Library is now included in a European database for inspirational libraries.
