A New Digital Hub For Nenagh Library

Cllr. Mattie Ryan, Cathaoirleach of Tipperary County Council, officially opened a new digital hub in Nenagh Library on Tuesday, 7th May.
This digital hub will provide a suite of new technology solutions to the public. These include the introduction of a new 3D Printer which will be a first for Tipperary County Council Library Service. It will allow library users to print out full 3D designs and prototypes which they can see and touch. The 3D printer will be operated through a brand new high spec Apple iMac which will have the latest graphics software.
In addition, a new 65 inch touchscreen will be available for use. This PC will be used as a digital display for learning. It can also be used for presentations with interactive touchscreen software and will have full video conferencing software. This video conferencing facility will be available for the public and local businesses to use.
The Library Service has also introduced new Robotics Technology as part of this innovative development. LEGO Mindstorm Robotics kits will now be available for the LEGO Club at the Library and VEX Robotics kits will be available for second level students.
These new services will complement further additional services which have been introduced in the past 12 months. These include remote printing where a library user can now send a document remotely from their own home to be printed in their local library. The Library Service has also introduced RFID Self Service Technology using high tech kiosks in all branch libraries over the past 12 months.
Cathaoirleach of Tipperary Council, Cllr Mattie Ryan said “I am delighted to launch the new Digital Hub in Nenagh Library which I believe will be a great asset for the town. It demonstrates Tipperary County Council’s commitment to providing the best possible public services for our citizens.”
The Chief Executive of Tipperary County Council, Joe MacGrath stated “Over the past 2 years, there has been over €1.3 million spent on capital projects in Tipperary County Council Library Service. I believe this new digital hub in Nenagh Library demonstrates Tipperary County Council’s commitment to provide a high quality Library Service which meets the ever changing needs of our citizens”.
