Reading for Positive Ageing - A helpful list of books especially for those who are ageing gracefully! All the books listed are available in the library.

Ferrybank Library Artists Exhibition - Ferrybank Library began facilitating this group of artists last September, under the tuition of Liz McGuire. Many of this group of people had never painted before and in the short few months of attending a class every week, have managed to produce this wonderful work. The group consists of both men and women, retired, semi-retired and those who make time every week in their busy schedule to learn the skill of painting.

For further information on any of the above, please contact Ferrybank Library on 051 897200 or email  ferrybank@kilkennylibrary.ie
