‘Books of Dublin’ iPad App Launch

The Library was closed on the morning of Wednesday 29 May for the launch of a special iPad app by Jimmy Deenihan, TD, Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. Dublin’s distinguished literary heritage and its historic libraries feature in this app, which showcases a selection from some of the fascinating rare manuscripts and historic printed books held at Marsh’s Library (1701) and at the Edward Worth Library (1733). Each work presented is accompanied by a commentary from an expert in the field.
