I thank Deputy Griffin for raising this issue. As the Deputy will be aware, the Minister for Education and the Government generally place great priority on the issue of literacy and encouraging children and, indeed, adults to constantly upskill and enjoy the undoubted benefits of reading. I note that the issue of local authority librarians providing services for primary schools is an important one.

The Minister for Education is conscious of the importance of library services. The Minister for Rural and Community Development, Deputy Humphreys, has responsibility for the support and provision of funding for library services. Therefore, I will take up the issue with both Ministers in the context of what the Deputy has raised.
