Library Ireland Week runs from the 28th of Nov to the 4th of Dec.  The theme of this year’s Library Ireland Week is “Libraries: empowering through online access” and the focus is on the incredible range of online resources available in our libraries.

Fingal Libraries have been offering eServices since 2012 when we began our digital journey with the introduction of eBooks and eAudiobooks.

Further to the above we now offer several more online services and, such is the choice now, there is something to appeal to everyone, including both adult and junior members!

The Fingal Library App gives you access to all of our eServices, and more, at the touch of a button on your tablet or smartphone. Download the app from Google Play or the App Store or see further info here.

Once you have downloaded the library app you can access your account and renew items online along with the ability to search the catalogue and place reserves on items 24/7.

Why buy, when you can borrow?! You can also scan book barcodes to see if the item is in stock in Fingal Libraries

Through the Library App or the Library webpage, you can access the following eResources on your mobile device or home PC

  • eBooks and eAudiobooks (Children & Adult’s Titles)
  • eMagazines (Access to a variety of popular magazines including Sport, House & Home, Science and Health & Beauty magazines)
  • eNewspapers (access to nearly 700 of the World’s top newspapers)
  • eComics (access to comics and graphic novels for both adults & children)
  • eCourses (Access to over 500 different courses – choose from areas of learning such as Accounting to Health & Medicine to Spirituality)
  • eLanguages (over 70 languages are offered to borrowers)
