About us

Louth Library Service

There are five branch libraries in Louth; Ardee, Carlingford, Drogheda, Dundalk and Dunleer, as well as Mobile, Schools and Housebound Library Services.

It’s very easy to join the library, and it’s free too. Click here to fill in an application form, or simply enquire in one of our branches.

Once you get your library card, you will not only have access to all five branch libraries in Louth, but you’ll also be able to access all public libraries in the country.

With your library card, you can also use our full suite of eServices for free. They include eBooks and eAudiobooks,  courses, newspapers from all around the world, magazines and more. All you need are your library card number and PIN.

A recent IT upgrade means that our libraries now offer access to new and exciting technologies. Public PCs, training rooms, meeting equipment and even games consoles and a 3D printer provide a new and exciting aspect to the library service.

Drogheda and Dundalk Libraries offer a six-day service, with four late evenings to ensure that the space is accessible to all. Furthermore, My Open Library is now available in Ardee and Drogheda Libraries. My Open Library allows borrowers to access the library outside of traditional opening hours. From 8am – 10pm, 365 days a year (including Bank Holidays and Sundays), My Open Library members can make full use of our self-service facilities to study, work, print or borrow and return books.
