Kevin St Library reopens
Kevin Street Library has re-opened its doors almost five years after it closed.
The library has undergone an extensive €3.9 million restoration and refurbishment by Dublin City Architects.
The library first opened in 1904, and was the fourth public library to open in the capital.
Throughout the restoration, DCC protected and cared for many original features of the building.
The architects co-ordinated the conservation and restoration project, which included the preservation of Victorian roof glazing, window openers, cupola and weather vane, exterior brick work, fireplaces and interior wood panelling.
It contains a spacious public library and inner reading room. To the rear of the building is a bright and animated children’s library equipped with a fun slide.
Commenting on the official reopening, the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Nial Ring, said: "It is great to see Kevin Street Library opened again and welcoming so many members, new and old, through its doors.
"The response from the public since the reopening shows what an important part of the local community this library is.
"Dubliners have been using this library since it first opened in 1904 and with this beautiful restoration and modernisation we can be sure that future generations will have the benefit of this facility for many years to come.”
