To establish a Resource Library in the Fermanagh Early Years Centre.


This Early Years Branch represents a large number of childcare groups in Fermanagh, ranging from Playgroups, Parent and Toddler Groups, Daycare Centres and Surestart Initiatives. Some of these are from the private sector though most are community based.  There is a need for staff in the early years sector to update their skills, for example, undertaking part time graduate courses and the lack of access to relevant library facilities in the area is restrictive.


Funded by Axis 3, through SWARD, the Fermanagh Early Years Branch fitted out a space within their existing building for use as a library and resource centre for their members. This involved the supply, delivery and installation of shelving and an initial supply of books.  They also installed ISDN lines, phone system and server to facilitate on line conferencing and remote tuition for its members.
