It was under the auspices of the Carnegie Trust that Fermanagh's first County Library movement was set up in late 1924 and early 1925. In 1932 a purpose-built Carnegie Library was opened in Fermanagh. The Western Education & Library Board assumed responsibility for Fermanagh County Library Service in 1973 and it is now known as Enniskillen Public Library. The Library Service in the Western Board's area operates via 16 branch libraries, 9 public and three specialist mobile libraries. The library also services 106 centres, including hospitals, community homes, as well as 270 schools. All service points offer a wide range of book and non-book materials, to suit all tastes, and for all ages of readers, for adults and children alike. Library staff have extensive links with the wider community.
