The Priaulx Library collections

The Library houses a large and varied number of important historical collections and resources.

Our special collections: 'a real gold mine of knowledge'

The Priaulx Library is committed to collecting, cataloguing and preserving the islands’ history and culture. Our 'gold mine' includes military records, local folklore and rare books in English and French.

Please note: Any book with a Priaulx Library label or stamp or a personal bookplate of Osmond Priaulx but without a withdrawal stamp may have been removed illegally from the Library's collection. We politely request that anyone with knowledge of such a book contact us immediately.
