The Library Service of the North Eastern Education and Library Board was established in 1973 under the Education and Libraries (NI) Order (revised 1986). It has a statutory obligation to provide a 'comprehensive and efficient' library service to everyone living or working in the Board's area and to all schools. There are 38 service points in all and 7 mobile libraries. All libraries are linked to the Library Service's computer system with stock issuing and circulation terminals and on-line public access catalogues. 2 mobiles are also computerised. The Carrickfergus branch library was opened in 1978 and is located near Carrickfergus Castle.
