Libraries suffered in the big chill
A TOTAL of 38,561 items were borrowed from County Wexford's public library during the month of January.
This figure was down three thousand on January 2009. However, librarians have pointed out that the mobile library service was pulled off the roads for a couple of weeks during the month because of the bad weather.
Regardless of the snow and ice, business was well up in both New Ross and Wexford towns.
