Exploring Dublin’s Long Room

To view more photos and videos from Dublin’s Trinity College Library, explore the Long Room location page.

Measuring 65 meters (213 feet) in length and housing more than 200,000 of Ireland’s oldest books, the Long Room at Trinity College Library in Dublin stands as a historical and cultural masterpiece.

The library is the largest in Ireland and dates back to the establishment of the university college in 1592. It holds more than 6 million printed works spanning 400 years.

The Long Room was originally built with a flat ceiling, but it was expanded to accommodate upper shelves and a gallery in the 1850s after the library was given legal deposit status in 1801, meaning it receives free copies of all material published in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

In addition to the numerous written works housed within the library, the Long Room also boasts marble busts of great philosophers, writers and artists as well as Ireland’s oldest harp.

One of my favorite rooms ever…

Colbert: “You say story time, book club — what are the things that I can get from a local book store that I am not getting from shopping online?”

Patchett: “Smart people.”

Colbert: “Hey, hey, what are you talking about? The Internet is full of smart people.”

Patchett: “I mean ones you can go in and talk to. We have so many smart people working in our store. You come in, you tell me what you just read, and I’ll tell you what you should read next.”

Colbert: “No, they already have that. They already have that. People who bought this book also bought a socket wrench set. One of the rare times that I read books is to escape, so I don’t have to talk to people.”

Great interview about small bookstores, Amazon, and the humor of Stephen Colbert..

I want to get this cookbook just based on this:
That’s the way I like to work. Collaboration. It’s the Pork Chop Theory.
Huh? What’s that?
The Pork Chop Theory is based on the premise that if you put one pork chop in the pan and turn the heat on high, the pork chop will burn. If you put two pork chops in the pan, however, and turn the heat on high they will feed off the fat of one another. It’s the ultimate in giving, sharing, and developing mutually beneficial partnerships and relationships. It’s not about competition; it’s about sharing the fat, sharing the love. (via Behind the Scenes of Basic to Brilliant, Y’all with Virginia Willis, plus a Recipe Sampler)
