We are delighted to announce that there is a new library in Ringsend College for Junior Cert students.  

All first, second and third year students now have a library class once a week, where they can find a good book, read in peace and quiet, and improve their literacy skills.  

The library is open before school and during lunchtime several times a week, so the students can come and study, select a new book, and do quizzes on the books they have read.  All of these students must have a Book in their Bag at all times and they are expected to read at home each night.  


Once a year we are also delighted to welcome an author to come and do workshops with our students in the library as part of the JCSP "Writers in Residence" programme 


This is what the Library has to offer students at Ringsend College:



Here is an example of a Library event we held:


The library has already hosted several other events, including a Chess club, a Lego Lunch, Spooky Storytelling, Anime Club, Coding Club, Knitting and Crochet lunch etc.



The Lord Mayor of Dublin Brendan Carr officially opened the library in November 2016. 

See the CDETB Newsletter's feature on our Grand Opening here, pages 6 and 7.  




On the 27th March, the Library was visited by 2 representatives from locally based company Perrigo--Art Shannon and Ron Janish--who came bearing gifts!  Their company has given our library a sizeable donation!  

They met with our second-year class 2A, and saw our Library classes in action.  Local TD Jim O'Callaghan, a real friend to our Library, came along too!
