DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL has put a €1.1 million contract out to tender for the development of a new automated system at its Pembroke Library. 

The system will be introduced at the Pembroke Library but with a view to rolling it out at a further 20 libraries in the coming years. 

It means the libraries would be open from 8am to 10pm for 365 days a year with users able to access the building and borrow books when staff aren’t there. 

So today we’re asking: Should libraries around Ireland open 365 days a year?

Poll Results:

No (5245)
Yes (3132)
I'm not sure / no opinion (612)
