A new book market has been launched at St Patrick’s Park in Dublin city center.
Dublin City Council has confirmed that the market will start today and operate in the park every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The marketplace will be known as Books and Browsables.
Dublin Mayor Councilor Alison Gilliland said: “I am delighted to launch the Books and Navigators market. Storytelling is one of our richest traditions and this market will be a celebration of all that is literary. Between the wide choice of books and the panoply of curiosities on offer, I have no doubt that this market will attract people from near and far. As one of the most captivating green spaces in our city, I can’t think of a better home for this market than St Patrick’s Park, so be sure to come and explore the park and its brand new market starting this Sunday. .
The initiative is part of a larger program led by the Office of City Recovery.
A wide range of new and used books will be on sale, including self-published titles and books from small independent publishers.
Dublin City Council said the market will also have other items for sale, “from vintage maps and vinyl records to amazing antiques and retro toys, there will be plenty to catch the eye.”
