The requirement for face coverings remains in place and Library stewards will continue to monitor compliance. Depending on the details of guidance received from the Government, readers may be asked to use the COVID Tracker app for contact tracing purposes.

Please note that at the request of the Graduate Students’ Union, a booking system remains in place in the 1937 Postgraduate Reading Room. The Joint Research Collections Reading Room will also maintain a booking system for the time being, due to preparatory works for the Old Library Redevelopment Project.

Full details are online of all opening hours and the booking system.  Also see our Plan Your Visit section for full range of Library services.

Events


Each week, more events are being planned in person, but we still have a range of online events that can be a convenient way to reconnect. You are welcome to join events ranging from mindfulness meditation every Wednesday to live in-person theatre at The Lir to Irish conversation circles.  There are book clubs, information sessions from the Library and IT services, as well as Career Fairs and much more.
Check out the calendar at www.tcd.ie/news_events/events and feel free to put up your own events as well, whether you are a student or staff member.   Email Katie Byrne if you have any questions about the calendar.
