Library Ireland Week in Portumna Library

Portumna Library had quite a busy but entertaining week of activities. Monday night saw the launch of the local art exhibition with the background choir of OMNA singers to really enhance the evening. Also present was Noelle Hayes who runs the local writing group Portumna Pen Pushers. Joining the wonderful art on display was their contribution of Poem of the Month, which will be on permanent display in the library. It was a wonderful evening with guests enjoying a cheese and wine reception and on hand as usual was the ever-obliging Jim Hynes to take photos. You can view these photos on
Wednesday evening was another creative night with Hayley Alduous giving a demonstration on crochet and if you managed to follow her instructions you ended the evening with a beautiful crocheted flower. It was an enjoyable and educational evening.
Many visitors called in later in the week to view the art and were very impressed with the amount of talent on display. It was another successful Library Ireland Week in Portumna and many enjoyed it.
