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. Please bring a memory stick if you wish to use this facility.
The Library is now hosting its annual photographic exhibition. The theme this year is The Shadow of War: Life in Guernsey 1914-1918, and as usual the photographs, which have been selected to illustrate local people's interaction with the Great War, are on display in our lovely garden until September 21st. The exhibition, which is free, continues inside the Library and includes documents and materials on the same theme, as well as hand-drawn trench maps and other items from the Guernsey regiments of military interest.
