Blackrock Library Renovation

A sneak peek at what's in store for Blackrock Library 2013/2014

Blackrock Old Town Hall & Carnegie Library 
Work is progressing well on the refurbishment of three old buildings dating back to the early 1900s – the Blackrock Technical Institute; the Carnegie Library and the Municipal Technical Institute. An adjoining three-storey over basement building is also being constructed. The new structure will be approximately 3,630sqm in size with 250sqm of atrium and garden space. It will complement the existing structure of approximately 1,790smq. Senior College Dún Laoghaire will move to the new premises and will be known as Blackrock Further Education Institute, and the County Council Blackrock Library will also be incorporated in the new building.
