Improved delivery frequency at National Library

The National Library of Ireland has introduced new, improved delivery arrangements in both its Main Reading Room (main building, Kildare Street) and its Manuscript Reading Room (no. 2 Kildare Street). These arrangements take immediate effect.

From today, hourly deliveries will be introduced as follows:

Monday-Wednesday: 9.30am, 10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm, 5pm, 6pm and 7pm.

Thursday-Friday: 9:30am, 10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.

Saturday: 9:30am, 10:30am and 11:30am.

Note: Deliveries for 9:30am orders need to be booked by the last order time of the previous working day.

A maximum of three printed items (ie books, journal issues, or microfilm reels) and three manuscript items or three rare books can be ordered for each order cut-off time. If more than three printed items or three manuscript items are requested, the additional material will be reserved for subsequent order times.

Cut-off time for orders is 15 minutes before the delivery time.

Orders can be placed online using the Online Order Form.
