As part of overall conservation and preservation plans for the Old Library, the display area for the Book of Kells is undergoing necessary works which will require the removal of the manuscript from November 4th to the beginning of March, 2020.
Regrettably during this period we anticipate some disruption to the Early Printed Books Reading Room, due to noise caused by ongoing works. Readers will be accommodated in the Map Library, in the basement of the Ussher Library, from the afternoon of Monday November 4th for at least two weeks. We will keep you updated on the Library news page, the Early Printed Books opening hours webpage and the Research Collections twitter account.
We apologise for any inconvenience and disruption caused.
