REACHING OUT AND
ENGAGING WITH COMMUNITIES
DAVID DALTON
DEPARTMENT OF RURAL AND
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
11APRIL 2019
To deliver a fairer society,
so that communities thrive,
throughout both urban and rural Ireland
…and improving the quality of life and
opportunities for all sections of the population,
especially our younger and older people
in the most disadvantaged areas.
~ Programme for a Partnership Government
Government of Ireland
2016
It is generally supposed that the
principal objective of the
founding fathers of the public library
movement was to provide an
alternative to the public house and
the gin mill for the working classes
and the poor.
~ Nodlaig Hardiman
Freely accessible to the public [with] admission granted unrestrictedly; to
the poor as well as to the rich, to the foreigner as well as to the native.
~ Select Committee on Public Libraries, 1849
What keeps socially excluded people from using the library is not
a physical barrier broken by a single hammer blow.
The barriers are more subtle and insidious.
~ Annette DeFaveri
Though equality of access promises a level playing field, the promise fails when some people
lack the knowledge, income, equipment, or training necessary to play the game.
~ Jorge Reina Schement
Equality Equity
A significant potential to develop targeted outreach initiatives for hard to reach
communities and groups. The local library provides a social space for
the isolated in urban and rural communities and collaboration
with the local agencies and community groups can develop and
support initiatives that encourage people to use the library.
~ Our Public Libraries 2022
Work with local and national partners to establish libraries as
a central community, civic and cultural space…
[and] support connected and informed communities and
promote civic participation by all sections of our communities.
~ Our Public Libraries 2022
It is revolutionising my teaching and the
learning experience for my students.
It makes their learning experience more dynamic,
multi levelled, interactive, engaging and enjoyable.
It was fantastic and above all it was
great fun for both the learners and myself.
My class on ‘Telling the Time’ yesterday was transformed
by the ability to use the interactive clock.
Librarians are the coolest people out there … and every time I get to encounter
or work with librarians I am always impressed by their sheer awesomeness.
~ Neil Gaiman
To be a librarian is not to be neutral, or passive, or waiting for a question.
It is to be a positive, radical change agent within your community.
~ R. David Lankes

To deliver a fairer society, so that communities thrive, throughout both urban and rural Ireland …and improving the quality of life and opportunities for all sections of the population, especially our younger and older people in the most disadvantaged areas. ~ Programme for a Partnership Government Government of Ireland 2016
  • 4. It is generally supposed that the principal objective of the founding fathers of the public library movement was to provide an alternative to the public house and the gin mill for the working classes and the poor. ~ Nodlaig Hardiman
  • 5. Freely accessible to the public [with] admission granted unrestrictedly; to the poor as well as to the rich, to the foreigner as well as to the native. ~ Select Committee on Public Libraries, 1849
  • 6. What keeps socially excluded people from using the library is not a physical barrier broken by a single hammer blow. The barriers are more subtle and insidious. ~ Annette DeFaveri
  • 7.
  • 8. Though equality of access promises a level playing field, the promise fails when some people lack the knowledge, income, equipment, or training necessary to play the game. ~ Jorge Reina Schement Equality Equity
  • 9. A significant potential to develop targeted outreach initiatives for hard to reach communities and groups. The local library provides a social space for the isolated in urban and rural communities and collaboration with the local agencies and community groups can develop and support initiatives that encourage people to use the library. ~ Our Public Libraries 2022
  • 10. Work with local and national partners to establish libraries as a central community, civic and cultural space… [and] support connected and informed communities and promote civic participation by all sections of our communities. ~ Our Public Libraries 2022
  • 11. It is revolutionising my teaching and the learning experience for my students. It makes their learning experience more dynamic, multi levelled, interactive, engaging and enjoyable.
  • 12. It was fantastic and above all it was great fun for both the learners and myself. My class on ‘Telling the Time’ yesterday was transformed by the ability to use the interactive clock.
  • 13.
  • 14. Librarians are the coolest people out there … and every time I get to encounter or work with librarians I am always impressed by their sheer awesomeness. ~ Neil Gaiman
  • 15. To be a librarian is not to be neutral, or passive, or waiting for a question. It is to be a positive, radical change agent within your community. ~ R. David Lankes
  • 16. THANK YOU DAVID DALTON DEPARTMENT OF RURAL AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT 11APRIL 2019
