Culture and the Community

COVID-19 Library Update:

The Institute’s campus is currently closed. We are therefore not in a position to offer access to external members or members of the public.

Welcome to the De Chastelain Library in DkIT. As part of our contribution to the intellectual and cultural life of Dundalk and surrounding areas, the Library hosts cultural events and exhibitions, including a film club, reading groups and writing workshops, which are open to DkIT and the wider community.
