"We collect, care for and share Dublin's history"
Dublin City Library and Archive (DCLA) provides access to rich collections highlighting Dublin's history and heritage. We are a combined service, facilitating access to archives, rare and special collections, and local studies material relating areas across the city. Our team of dedicated staff including archivists and librarians, is happy to welcome you to our Reading Room to research the collections. We are a research library and archive so items cannot be borrowed but can be used for research and study in the Reading Room by anyone with a DCLA research card. Dublin City Library and archive is part of Dublin City Council and Dublin City Libraries.
