The Book of Kells Exhibit

The exhibit highlights a page, or folio (facing pair of pages), in the Book of Kells, as well as the decorative case made for the facsimile copy.  A companion book that further explains the intricacies and history of the page is also on display.  No reservations are required.

The exhibit is on the Main Level of the library and is open when the library is open. During January, June, July, and August the Book of Kells is removed from display to allow it to rest.
