Sligo Libraries are committed to multiculturalism and recognise the importance of the various non Irish national communities in our society as a whole. As such a number of implemented strategies have continued.
- A link from our website to the Sligo Immigrant Organisation website http://sioinfo.com was established in mid 2008 to further portray our services to this section of the community.
- Our policy of foreign title collection development, both adult and juvenile has continued, increasing stock throughout the year.
- The Sligo Immigrant Organisation, in 2009, ran two photography competitions entitled “Our Sligo” and “Sligo – history, culture and fun”. The entries were displayed for public view in Sligo Central Library thus raising the profile of both community services and the working relationship between them.
