Abstract

On 4th December, 1947, Dail Eireann rushed through the Public Libraries Bill, 1947, in a week to ten days, on the eve of a General Election. The promised final consultation with the Library Association of Ireland on the question of the bill's provisions did not take place, and Irish public librarians were rudely awakened to the fact that the measure on which they pinned their hopes had been disposed of with indecent haste.
