Public won't get into new Naas library and cultural centre until next February

The opening of the new Naas Library and Cultural Centre has been delayed.

It’s now likely that the building will be ready to be handed over at the end of next January.

The library was originally due to open by the middle of 2021.

Kildare County Council then said that the project will be complete by late summer or early autumn 2022.

KCC says that the building will be handed over seven months from now.
