Joining Temple Bar's First Thursdays*, and the OPW's First Wednesdays**, is Second Fridays at the National Library. They are informal evenings of music, talk, and writers reading pieces of their work. These events will take place in Cafe Joly from 19:00 - 22:00 and are completely free. The first event on Friday, 10th February will feature jazz from the Louis Stewart Trio and some readings. If you have a NLI reader card, you get 10% in the café too.
*Tomorrow is a First Thursday.
**Unclear if the OPW is carrying this on in 2012 as yet.
