Mercy International Association is developing a library of published works by and/or about Sisters of Mercy, Associates within Mercy, and our Mercy ministries.
Known as the Catherine Mcauley Library it has been established in the room in the Baggot Street building that was Catherine McAuley's office.
The Library has three main sections:
- Biographies of Catherine McAuley and some of the early founding sisters;
- an example of a mid-19th Century Mercy convent library;
- a collection of books, written by or about Sisters of Mercy and Mercy Ministries.
The library holds 987 publications which have been catalogued electronically on Librarything.com.
A slideshow of images featuring some of the publications in the library is linked to this item.
MIA is looking to authors to donate a copy of their works to the Catherine McAuley library.
