August bank holiday closures

Usual early warning of bank holiday closures at libraries and archives in Ireland this coming weekend.

The National Archives and National Library, together with all regional publicly-funded libraries and repositories, will be closed on Bank Holiday Monday, 6 August.

In addition, those that usually open on Saturdays (ie local libraries) will not open this Saturday,
4 August; they will be closing at their usual time on Friday, 3 August, reopening on Tuesday,
7 August, at their usual time.

The National Library of Ireland, in Kildare Street, will be bucking this trend, however. It will be open for normal Saturday hours (9.30am to 12.45pm), reopening on Tuesday at its standard time.

Libraries and archives in Northern Ireland will be open as usual. The August Bank Holiday in Northern Ireland will be on 27 August.
