Farewell to 6th Class

I was delighted to meet sixth class today as we haven’t met since the 12th of March. A huge thanks to Gavin & Maura for organising this event and providing the venue. Only a small number were in attendance and we had a small celebration while observing social distancing guidelines.

Online Library Services

This email was received :

As we work out how best to service schools into the future, we will be encouraging pupils to use our online services for audio & ebooks, to browse the catalogue to make requests, and to generally try to keep them actively engaged in their library.


Online services can be viewed by typing corkcoco/library into your search engine (Google, Safari etc), select Library Online, select Join the library/My Account/Browse the Catalogue, scroll down to access your library account here. Enter your Name, 14 digit Library Card Number (membership barcode), and PIN: 0000 

All juvenile PINs have been set as 0000, but can be changed by individuals if they wish once they have logged in.


Class visits to the mobile library are not going to be possible for the foreseeable future, as physical distancing would be very difficult to implement. With this in mind, it would great to see pupils, teachers and parents familiarising themselves with the online service.


Any queries you may have can be emailed to westcorkmobile@corkcoco.ie or phone 021 4546499
