02/12/2020 - Donegal Libraries to operate Contact and Collect and Browse and Borrow Services

Following on from An Taoiseach’s recent announcement that Donegal has moved to Level 3 on the Government’s Resilience and Recovery Plan for Living with COVID-19, we are delighted to announce a threefold approach to the resumption of some of our services as follows:


Browse and Borrow Service


We are delighted to announce that we will offer a browse and borrow service in 5 of our libraries. This will allow customers to physically enter a participating library for 15 minutes to browse through the stock and select their books and DVDS. We cannot offer access to photocopying, computers, study facilities, research or seating at the moment. From Friday the 04th December, the Browse and Borrow service will be available in the following 5 libraries: Central Library Letterkenny, Leabharlann Phobail Ghaoth Dobhair, Buncrana Community Library, Twin Towns Community Library, and Bundoran Community Library.


Contact and Collect Service


'Contact and Collect' is a way for members to order books and then collect them from their local library when they are available. Customers can also place requests in the usual way - using our online catalogue, by email or by phone. Once their requested item has arrived, the library service will make contact to arrange collection during normal library opening hours.

The Contact and Collect service will operate during normal Library opening hours and will be available from the following libraries; Central Library Letterkenny, Buncrana Community Library, Bundoran Community Library, Twin Towns Community Library and Leabharlann Phobail Ghaoth Dobhair.


Doorstep Delivery Service


This service is available to those who are vulnerable and self isolating. Books can be delivered directly to your door so you do not have to miss out on your favourite authors!


For more information on any of the above services and opening times for your library please contact one of the above mentioned branches or visit our website here.
