300-year-old library in Dublin collects over 200,000 books


This majestic Long Room in the library of Trinity College is one of the most memorable visits when you travel to Dublin, built between 1712 and 1732, the main chamber is about 65 meters (213ft) long and collects over 200,000 books, which is the biggest library in Ireland. The reason why there’re so many collections is that back in 1801 when it opened, the library was granted the right to claim a free copy of every book published in Britain and Ireland. Those priceless collections in the 300-year-old library include The Book of Kells, one of the most famous and valuable manuscripts in existence that was written by monks over 1200 years ago. The library also collects one copy of the 1916 Proclamation of the Irish Republic.
