Mary Murray spent all her working life at Navan Library – forty-five years in total until her retirement in 2006. She is a native of Drumbaragh, Kells, where she still lives. She describes her background and her schooldays. She had always had a passion for books and reading and she recalls her satisfaction at being appointed to Navan Library at Church Hill in 1961. She talks about the running of the library, the atmosphere which prevailed, the old operating methods, and the staff down through the years. The library moved to its present location at Railway Street, in 1974. She contrasts the computerised system in the modern building today with the card index system which operated in former days.
