On August 8th the Librarian, Mr Robin Adams welcomed English tourists, Robbie Howatson (8 years old), his parents Ian and Jan and sister Rosina, who became a part of Irish tourism history as the 10 millionth visitors to the Book of Kells since the creation of its visitor centre in 1992.
On 23 May 1712 the foundation stone of the Old Library was laid. To mark our Tercentenary, Library staff gathered together for a celebratory photograph.
Trinity students from DU Players promenaded amongst visitors playing famous alumni and other people connected to Trinity College Dublin. You can see a gallery of this and other events marking our 300th anniversary at our Tercentenary Gallery page.
