National Library of Ireland: access issues on Thursday 13 April

If you were planning a trip to the National Library of Ireland (NLI) on Thursday 13 April, be aware that you may experience traffic and access disruption thanks to the US President's visit to Government Buildings.

Security procedures and concerns have already closed the National Museum of Ireland (NMI) – Natural History in Merrion Street and the NMI – Archaeology in Kildare Street (both will reopen as normal at 10am on Friday 14 April), and there will be no public access to the National Library's exhibition Yeats: The Life and Works of William Butler Yeats, also in Kildare Street.

However, registered readers with a current valid Readers Ticket will be permitted access to the Library through the security. So don't forget to bring your valid Reader's Ticket!

NLI exhibitions Seamus Heaney: Listen Now Again on Westmoreland Street, and People and Places at the National Photographic Archive in Temple Bar, will be open as normal.
