The JCSP Lynott Library was named for our most famous past pupil in November 2019, when we hosted Michael D. Higgins in the library to commemorate Phil Lynott’s contribution to Irish music and culture. However, we have been part of the internationally regarded JCSP Demonstration Library Project since 2009, when Katie Taylor officially opened our dedicated library space that was once the P.E. Hall.
The library’s main function is to foster a love of reading among Clogher Road’s students, staff, and members of the wider community; In 2018 we became a “Well-read School” in recognition of this. The library also supports the curriculum by providing access to additional learning materials for the subjects that are taught here, and an alternative learning space.
And yet, if you asked most students about the Lynott Library, they would probably mention the brass band, or the chess club, or Dungeons and Dragons,or the author-in-residence! The library is a flexible space, and the hub of the arts culture at Clogher Road Community College. It’s a place of discovery and learning.
