MEETING OF LUCAN AREA COMMITTEE

MOTION NO. 8

MOTION: Councillor L. O’Toole

“That this council examines the possibility of looking at ways in which Lucan Library could be used and opened at night time with a social/youth element to encourage young teenagers to get involved in community based and recreational activities.”

REPORT:

Libraries at present actively encourage teenagers to get involved in community based projects and recreational activities by providing them with a wide range of information on their local area. Lucan Library has a noticeboard where groups can advertise their local events and activities.

 

There are copies of local newspapers available with news and advertisements from local groups and sports clubs. The internet is provided free to all users where they can connect with local groups.

 

Libraries are always looking at ways to attract teenagers into the premises and as such we will look at any further potential avenues to achieve this.
