Remember the letters you all wrote with Eimear Burke when you came to Kimmage last September.  Now is the time to have a look back at what you wrote. 

Please collect your letter from the Library Desk before you leave us.

Library Closing Time- Saturdays
by Anne Kinsella - Monday, 10 March 2014, 1:14 PM

A reminder that the library closes at 5.00pm on Saturday.There has been a reluctance to leave on the part of some students. Our neighbours in the Spiritan community have already made representations regarding lights on in the library late in the evening at weekends.

Alison now has a key for the library door and will be locking the library door at the designated time. I would ask you to please cooperate in this matter and to vacate the building when requested to do so.

Also, please do not leave dirty cups and water bottles  in the library. If you have  used a cup, take it with you when you leave.

Thank You.
