The library in Athy isn't able to extend its opening hours, local councillors were told. The Municipal District meeting heard yesterday that the facility didn't have enough staff to stay open longer to the public. Senior Executive Librarian Eimear McGinn told councillors: "Given ongoing limitations of library staffing resources, Kildare Library and Arts Service at this moment in time are not in a position to extend the opening hours of Athy Library."
