Funding of €136,722 has been allocated for digital library services and facilities in Kerry.

This investment aims to enhance ICT infrastructure, create new meeting spaces with state-of-the-art technology and provide dedicated digital learning suites.

Seanad Leas-Cathaoirleach Senator Paul Coghlan says the upgrade to facilities will attract new users of all ages to public libraries.


He adds it will transform the public library service across Kerry.

The funding, which is also being welcomed by Minister of State Brendan Griffin, includes the provision of iPads, tablets and smart devices for users and staff, computers and workstations including image deployment technology.

It will also ensure libraries have aids for people with dementia, intellectual disabilities, learning difficulties and autism.
