Just looking at the Winter DLR times and there is a page dedicated to the Central Library.
Some things caught my eye,
1. the library will include a public "living room" overlooking Moran park, with space for internet use, newspapers, and magazines as well as community information and a dedicated suite of rooms for young people.
2. the building will accommodate general reading rooms, a children's library and a local history department with views of the sea.
3. the Cultural Centre will provide a new space for the expansion of existing festivals and for new cultural events and programmes to be initiated. The cultural Centre will also provide opportunities for local art organisations including amateur groups to showcase their work to a broader audience.
4. the Central Library and Cultural Centre will be a key component in the regeneration of Dún Laoghaire town and will consolidate the Metals redevelopment.The project represents a significant opportunity to "knit back" the structure of the town with the seafront and invigorate the heart of Dún Laoghaire.
5. the development includes a multi purpose performance space with seating for 100 personsa municiple gallery, a café, meeting rooms and reading rooms office space for the County's Art &Library Services and 100 car parking spaces.

Ha that is the question ????. I haven't seen anything, anywhere about the overrun or the projected final figure. The bit i like is "knit back" the structure of the town with the seafront....when for years the attitude has been dickey up the seafront and the metals and to hell with the town and the shops.

Stop Rocker...this is a new year and you must not be cynical !!!!

All in all if it is properly run it will be a good facility but in these PC days it will be difficult to exclude any un desirables....

The official line now seems to be that the funds for the library were magically created from stardust (or found at the end of a rainbow). Consider yourself fully assured that the cost of the library will not in any way affect local rates. Nor will it affect road maintenance, refuse or water services, street cleaning, parks, or any other council services. So I have been told by my local councillor, whom I trust absolutely

Gulliver
Health and Safety should have a real genuine concern with photo 8. If I am correct there is no protection to the left of that person and I would lay odds the person had not got steel toecaps in those boots.

I don't say this lightly and if I am correct it should be pointed out immediately. Too many accidents on building sites.

Sorry - not to take away from your posting.

Ha ha ,...just dawned on me why it won't affect those services such as road maintenance etc.....they are all going to be run by someone else at enormous consultants costs ....... must get me business cards printed...if i can't consult I sure can insult.

It looks fantastic and if it is built within its budget, and is used by the whole community,I would say that it should be a huge benefit to Dun laoghaire. Lets hope that it adds to the attractions of Dun Laoghaire just as the Pier has.
