Funding for Digital Services

Kildare Libraries have recently received funding for the provision of digital library services across Kildare. The funding is aimed at providing library users with access to the latest technologies and supporting users who are not confident with technology.

Equipment being purchased in Kildare includes computers and laptops for public use, tablets for use by the public to access new technologies and use online library services, interactive touch screens for collaboration work, classes and meeting spaces, gaming and virtual reality equipment, kits to support coding including robotics kits and self service tablet lending systems which will allow users to borrow a tablet with their library card and use the device within the library. The laptops , tablets and computers will allow for classes supporting library users in developing their digital skills while the coding equipment will complement the existing Science Technology Engineering Arts and Maths Programme.
