‘DROGHEDA LIBRARY is open for business once more, and looking better than ever!’

May 7th, 2014

Once again we were delighted to participate with Louth County Libraries providing signage for the recently refurbished Drogheda Library.

The official re-opening launch of Drogheda Branch Library took place on Thursday, April 17th 2014.

The newly refurbished and upgraded library was opened by Mr. Fergus O’Dowd, T.D. Minister of State for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources in the presence of the Cathaoirleach of Louth County Council, Mr. Declan Breathnach, the Mayor of Drogheda, Councillor Richie Culhane, and County Librarian, Ms. Bernadette Fennell.

The refurbished library is a superb community facility with state of the art equipment putting it at the forefront of Irish public libraries. The library features an improved layout with new service points, and revamped children’s and teenage areas. Technology has been substantially upgraded with the installation of two RFID self-issue service kiosks, additional computer access points and WiFi access. There is a new meeting and seminar room which is a community space for meetings and exhibitions as well as serving as an open access computer facility.

With the refurbishment, the library is continuing to improve its core services, but also working in partnership with local organisations and agencies to develop supports and programmes for the community. The new seminar room offers opportunities for outreach activities: including, creative writing workshops, business seminars, computer classes, adult and children’s bookclubs and parent and toddler groups.

Drogheda Library’s upgrade and refurbishment included a professional, modern look at our signage. Wayfinder Systems succeeded in providing a fresh, modern, clean-line approach to our signage, incorporating our need to direct our customers to subject categories of stock items. The company was professional, accommodating, and easy to work with and delivered on time. The signage complements the overall design of the library. We send our thanks to Padraig and his team.
