Guernsey's Historical and Family History Research Centre
The Priaulx Library promotes and celebrates Guernsey life, language, history, culture, and literature, and enables access to our unique rare book collection. Our staff also undertake paid local historical and genealogical research.
NOW WITH FREE WI-FI! By popular demand, we have installed wi-fi, so customers can now link conveniently to the internet inside the Library on their own laptop or phone. The Library has acquired a state-of-the-art book and document scanner for use by those of the public who prefer digital scans to photocopies. Memory sticks can be purchased at the Library.
PLEASE NOTE: requests for newspapers dated 2008 and later, (as these are not yet available on microfilm), must be made 24 hours in advance.
The Poppy Exhibition is currently on display in the Library; newly-knitted or crocheted poppies are arriving every day. Patterns are available from the Library.
