Dublin City Council has announced that a new book market will be held at St. Patrick’s Park in Dublin city center.
The market, known as “Books and Navigators” will start on Sunday September 12th and will operate in the park every Sunday from 11am to 4pm.
Speaking ahead of the launch of the Books and Browsers Market, Dublin Mayor Councilor Alison Gilliland said: “I am delighted to launch the Books and Browsers 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 range of curiosities on offer, I am convinced that this market will attract people from near and far.
“As one of our city’s most captivating green spaces, 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 in from this Sunday. ”
This initiative is part of a larger program led by the Office of City Recovery.
The new market will give the public the opportunity to explore a wide selection of new and used books and will include self-published titles, as well as those from small independent publishers.
In addition to the books, “there will be a lot of curiosities to browse,” the council says.
“From old maps and vinyl records to amazing antiques and retro toys, there will be plenty to grab the attention.
“A particularly eco-conscious element of the market will be in the form of recycled and vintage clothing, which will appeal to the growing number of fans of sustainable fashion in Dublin. “
