9th January 2018 – Quiet Please: Inside Dublin Libraries


by Oona Roycroft


Quiet please: inside Dublin libraries traces the formation of the Irish public library system, especially in Dublin. At the heart of this talk are the people in the libraries – both staff and users. There’s a particular focus on Pauline Hanlon, who worked for more than 40 years in both the city and the county library systems and Anna MacMahon, who was the librarian in Skerries for over thirty years.
