Naas Public Library Access Control Installation

Naas Public Library Access Control Installation

Mongey Communications recently installed 20 Vanderbilt access control doors into Naas Town Hall as part of the project to move Naas Public Library into the historic building.

Naas Town Hall has been at the heart of civic and community life in Naas for over 130 years. As well as its prime function as the meeting venue and offices for the Town Council, the Town Hall has fulfilled many other roles.

Naas cinemagoers saw their first films in its assembly rooms in the early years of this century (projected by gas light at one time). It hosted many travelling shows in the assembly room, while upstairs the ballroom’s dance floor was the location for Hunt Balls and Dances run by a wide variety of organisations.

Naas GAA was founded in the Town Hall in 1887 and it was also the venue for question times and debates and meetings of various groups such as the League of the Cross, the Catholic Institute, and the Naas Workingmen’s Club which occupied committee rooms fitted out for billiards and card-playing. The Christmas market was also held in the yard for years and more recently Naas Country Market relocated from the Town Hall after more than 65 years of hosting its weekly market.

In 1905 Naas Town Council established the Naas Public Library which at the time was the first official public library in the county.

Mongey Communications are delighted to be a part of such a historical project.
