• Funding to support our libraries to become more digitally inclusive
  • Communities across the country set to be benefit from initiative

Communities across the country are set to be benefit from the initiative – with a particular focus on supporting young people, our elderly and our disadvantaged.

The funding will also support the new public library strategy, ‘The Library Is The Place’ .

Welcoming the announcement Minister Rabbitte said:

This initiative is all about making our public libraries more accessible and digitally inclusive places and it will enable public libraries to replace outdated PCs, laptops and iPads with new devices for the benefit of library users young and older.

Minister Humphreys said:

It is essential that our libraries are able to provide up-to-date ICT infrastructure because they play a critical role in helping to support digital inclusion, as well as providing literacy and technology skills training for those looking for work.

It is also vital our libraries continue to support marginalised and disadvantaged communities to access government services.
