Aungier Street Library makes an exhibition of itself!

Library Ireland Week, March 2nd to 8th, aims to celebrate the important role of Libraries in Irish society. See for details of events around the country. To mark the occasion the library at Aungier Street is hosting 2 exhibitions entitled "Art and Archeology in Aungier Street Library".
The first is a small exhibition of paintings and photographs by 3 members of library staff – Lorraine Lawlor, Eadaoin Ryan and Fiachra Mangan. The second exhibition by librarian Ciaran Quinn traces the history of the Aungier Street/Bishop Street area from a medieval monastic settlement to Jacob’s factory and its role in the 1916 Rising. Ciaran has gathered some really interesting material as part of his recent Masters in Archeology thesis. Do please drop in and have a browse!
