Fianna Fáil T.D for Dublin North West Paul McAuliffe has today welcomed additional funding of €98,468.14 for Dublin City Council Libraries. The funding has a specific focus and is aimed to support a wide variety of groups in local communities.
Dublin City Council will be using the funding to employ 2 dedicated programmers in the Dublin area which will create an inspiring programme with authors, artists, musicians, poets, actors who will share work and ideas of what sustains them and gives them joy. The funding will also be used to support a family literacy project and to help purchase TTRS licences.
“Last week we received positive news of progress on Finglas Library and this week we have additional funding provided by the new Government for additional Library services. This funding will have real positive benefits for so many people.” Concluded McAuliffe.
