Open Day Library Tours Saturday 10th December 2016

Pomodoro SphereAs part of Open Day 2016, the Library would be delighted if you could join us for a short tour of the Berkeley, Lecky and Ussher Libraries. Students and their families are all very welcome. Teachers too!
Please meet us in the foyer of the Berkeley Library
Tours will run every 15 minutes from 10:15 to 13:00 and will last about 10 minutes. They will be led by Trinity students so it’s a chance to talk to them about life at Trinity and they might even show you their favourite spot to study in the Library!
We look forward to seeing you.
