Wicklow County Council Library Service is organising a series of virtual events and activities as part of the Public Libraries’ annual ‘Spring into Storytime’.The programme launched on April 1st promises to bring the magic of storytime to homes across the county.   All of the virtual events and activities are based around reading and listening to stories which families can enjoy at home.It provides an ideal opportunity for children to take time to enjoy a variety of stories through online story times by library staff and authors and experience reading as an activity which is fun, entertaining and allows families to share this happy time together.

To take part in ‘Spring Into Storytime’, our social media channels for Instagram  Wicklowlibraries and Facebook Wicklow County Council Library Service.  You can also visit where online storytimes from library staff all over Ireland will be uploaded.

Area Clean Up

Join us for an area clean up on Tues at 7pm. As usual we meet opposite Lynhams with tools provided. This time we are hoping to plant and sow wildflower seeds. Everyone is welcome, families, teenagers and the more mature!

Meeting via Zoom

We will be holding a zoom meeting on Tues the 11th at 8pm. Anyone is welcome to join our growing group of helpers. It is a great way to meet new people and get involved in creating a beautiful space to live and work in. Email us at if you would like to attend or join the group.

Laragh Community Garden

Our community garden has just been prepared for the growing season. Already we have enjoyed some wild garlic and nettles grown around the garden. Our polytunnels are in use and it is all systems go for April. We still have some frost around and while we have had some tomato plant casualties in the polytunnel, it will be a lesson learned for 2022.
