Two-hundred-and-thirty-one years ago today the Linen Hall Library was founded by a group of ‘worthy plebians who would do honour to any town.’ Since then the Linen Hall has become synonymous with all that is of cultural importance in Belfast and Northern Ireland.
Director Julie Andrews says: “It is of great importance, and significance, that the Linen Hall Library has survived and thrived for over two centuries. There are fewer and fewer institutions that can claim that longevity. We are custodians of this great Library and continue to work to ensure its existence far into the future.”
As one of Belfast’s oldest charities, the Linen Hall depends on donations. Please help us continue our vital work. Click through for options to support.
