This is a travel blog I wrote while touring libraries and museums in Ireland and the UK in 2012 as part of my Masters program in Library Science. Feel free to give it a read.
I coordinate a blog where librarians like me celebrate fictional events in real life. Do you want ideas for how to celebrate Harry Potter’s birthday, commemorate First Contact Day, or salute Robinson Crusoe on his deserted island? Follow us on WordPress, twitter, or Facebook to keep up.
