The JCSP Library at Rath Dara C.C. was officially opened in 2010. We have a full-time librarian, Ms. Carmody. The Library is a hive of activity before, during and after school every day. Students can take part in a range of lunchtime and after school groups such as Minecraft, Writing Group, Chess, Movie Making or a number of other activities.

After school we have Homework Club.

Classes are held in the Library all day with a strong focus on literacy and numeracy skills.

Authors and speakers are regular visitors to our Library.
