Finding your way around our new website

Fáilte chuig ár suíomh idirlín nua! Welcome to our new look website. As well as a more modern look, we have reorganised our information to be easier to find. Please bear with us, while we make sure everything is in the right place.

If you want to find our opening hours or contact details, Contacts and Hours is an option on the navigation bar on every page. Links relating to your library account, including renewing your items and setting your PIN, are always available from the red menu bar on every page.

If you had bookmarked your favourite library pages, we have set up our most popular pages to redirect automatically to their new location in this new site. You can also try the Search function at the top of every page. Some older pages that were no longer being updated have been discontinued.

Please also visit our sister websites: Cork Past and Present, and the Cork Music Archive. If you have any questions about this new layout, try the Frequently Asked Questions, or email elibrary@corkcity.ie.

Customers of Ballincollig, Blarney and Glanmire libraries will experience disruption to your BorrowBox account from 31 May 2019.

To re-register choose Cork City Council Libraries, enter the barcode from your library card and your PIN. We apologise sincerely for this disruption.
