I was visiting Roscommon to learn more about my ancestors who came to America during the Famine in 1848. I found the staff at the library to be extremely helpful and accommodating. They provided knowledgeable answers to my inquiries and great assistance in locating source documents.

Roscommon Town Library is very accessible to all ages, books not available in the Library can be sourced nationwide by the very helpful staff within a few days. Local history and maps in the reference Section provides a wealth of information for visitors.

Roscommon County Library is located on Abbey Street a short walk from the centre of town. In addition to the junior library and the general library they have an extensive local history section with every book ever written about Roscommon Town and County in addition to supporting maps and ancient newspapers available on computer, which can be scanned and searched with ease.
the staff are forever helpful- no matter what your question.
Some documents are not on display and can only be accessed on request.
