Carrickphierish Library, the newest branch of Waterford Libraries, opened it’s doors to the public for the first time on Wednesday 10 May. The excitement was palpable, with the public anxious to see the new state of the art library and what it had to offer.
First through the door of the new library, and eager to get his hands on the wide choice of books and other items was bookworm, Ross Whelan, age 5, from Waterford City.
