Limerick City Library, formerly the Granary Library, is the central branch of Limerick libraries and offers a wide range of services.

County Limerick's Reference and Local Studies Department is located in the Central Library here at the Granary. In addition to the many historical reference materials available there is an extensive collection of Limerick-related materials held here. This local collection is an essential aid for anyone researching the history of Limerick.

Use of the facilities in this section is open to all and there are no charges except for photocopying and printing.

A full-time librarian is available at the reference department to assist people with queries and research. We try to help with family history queries although it should be noted that we do not offer a genealogy research service.
