St. Patrick’s College is one of the oldest third-level educational institutions in Ireland and has enjoyed a leading position in the area of primary teacher education in Ireland since its foundation in 1875. Cregan Library has had several homes in the College, with the last iteration being built in the 1970s and located at the back of the Drumcondra campus.
In February of 2015, (after a prolonged building period and much hard work!) Cregan Library moved into a brand new state-of-the-art four-story building which faces onto Drumcondra Road. It provides students and staff with a modern, comfortable, expanded learning space complete with collaborative and group study spaces and an archive room for the Library’s special collections.
We were absolutely delighted when we were offered the library as the venue for this year’s Library Camp. We are also very excited that tours of the new library will be running during the Camp so you can have a good look around this beautiful new building. So what are you waiting for? Get booking and we will see you on Saturday May 23rd at 1pm!!
