Sharpen your senses this Autumn at Dublin City Public Libraries

Dublin City Libraries and Archives announced details of their new Autumn schedule today. The programme is packed full of informative talks, interesting walks and workshops.

All events are Free and further information is available in Local Libraries or on

The first event to kick start the programme is Heritage Week which runs from 22nd to 30th August.  This weeklong event includes a family history open day, seminars, performances and exhibitions to celebrate Irish Design and Yeats 2015 amongst others. Heritage week will inform you a little more about the built, cultural and natural heritage of our city and suburbs.

One of the highlights of the programme each year is Culture Night, which is on Friday 18th September.  A number of events such as storytelling, poetry and music will take place at Drumcondra, Marino and Pearse Street Libraries.

Not forgetting the literary programme, the Dublin Book Festival runs from 25th September to the 10th October and includes the annual Children’s Book Festival.  This Festival will provide an opportunity for readers young and old to gather together and share their love of words and books.

“This is a diverse age-friendly programme, with something for children, for lovers of music and drama, for those looking to develop their own business and for those interested in the business of the past – I’m sure we have something for everyone throughout the City – enjoy!” said Margaret Hayes, City Librarian.
