Ballyroan plan

The library is the final piece of a commission that started in 2006. The existing 1980's library was outdated and undersized for the 300,000 unique visits it received each year. The commission involved the refurbishment of an existing Community Centre and provisions of a Pastoral Centre.

The library was built in the 1980’s and served the community well over the past decades. However the library became outdated, in need of upgrading and became too small to deal with the collection of resources available to the community for reference or borrowing and to meet the changes in technology.
