Dun Laoghaire - Lexicon Library at night

Cultural evening at Dún Laoghaire – LexIcon Library

dlr LexIcon is delighted to host the IFLA World Library and Information Congress 2022 Cultural Evening on 27 July 2022.

 

Our beautiful award-winning library has become a firm favourite with borrowers and tourists alike, having been one of the most visited public buildings in the country for some time. Seven years after it opened, the LexIcon still draws in approximately 34,000 visitors a month.

Alongside its varied collections of books for all ages, DVDs, public access computers and numerous study spaces, it is home to the 100-seater Studio Theatre, the Municipal Gallery, a designated Local History and Archives space, a Café, plus the LexIcon Lab – where staff and facilitators hold STEAM events throughout the year.

The library space is not solely a book repository.  National, regional, and local events and exhibitions play a major part in the day to day running of the library.

 

Whether you visit for the Cultural Evening, the Friday library tour or you simply have time at the end of one of the Conference days, drop into the LexIcon and view one of our Summer exhibitions.

 

Learn about ‘The Forgotten 10’ – men who were killed during the Irish War of Independence; take the stairs to Level IV and spend time browsing the Leinster Printmaking Studio exhibition; or view our bespoke/specially selected book displays highlighting independent Irish printers alongside very early printed books, all the while taking in the breath-taking views of Dún Laoghaire Harbour and Dublin Bay beyond.

There is plenty to see and do during your Cultural Evening with us and LexIcon staff cannot wait to show you around.
