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. Please note our new fees and charges for 2013. At the moment we have on display an exhibition reflecting the school curriculum, Occupation Memories and Victorian Reflections, featuring material chosen particularly for its visual appeal.
Why not support the Itex Walk around Guernsey this year, either by sponsoring a walker, donating - or even taking part! The Friends of the Priaulx Library are to be one of the beneficiaries of the money collected through all the participants' hard toil, for which we are very grateful!
'It may be remarked here, that the Channel Islands hate and despise one another quite as heartily as old maids in a country town, and the expression of the Guernsey waiter's face when we told him that we were en route for Alderney, was haughty, but pitying.'
