Bloomsday

Every year on June 16, fans of James Joyce’s novel, Ulysses, commemorate the anniversary of Leopold Bloom’s ordinary day in Dublin. There are Bloomsday celebrations all over the world; the most famous of course, in Dublin, Ireland. It was first celebrated in 1954, on the 50th anniversary of the events in the novel. The library has a selection of Joyce’s novels, as well as biographical information and critical works.
