Library : Moate Library sparkles with a sprinkling of fairy


There’s a little bit of magic in Moate Library at the moment as a family of fairies has taken up residence in the exhibition room. Drop in and see who you can spot peeping out from Rosebud cottage or from the Seashell house.

The  current fairy exhibition is part of a larger garden which recently was in Athlone Library. The garden was created by the Irish Wheelchair Association Art Group (Athlone) in collaboration with Paula Sharkey, art tutor with the Longford Westmeath ETB. It is a tribute to the imagination and creativity of all involved that they have created such a delightful set of homes for the fairies to move into.

The fairy garden will be available to visit between 20th July and 2nd August during library opening hours. 

So take advantage of this opportunity to share in the magic and maybe even write a wish for fairies.

See here for details of opening hours or call 090 6481888.
