Living History Tour

Thursday 13 & Thursday 20 December, 18.00 - 19.00

Tour the Library with one of our 'original' staff!

On the late night shopping evenings of Thursday 13 & Thursday 20 December, our original Curator John Linwood Pitts will lead guided tours of the iconic Library building. Mr Pitts (played by John Gaisford from Guernsey History in Action) is returning more than 100 years after his death to explain how his friends Thomas Guille and Frederick Allès came to fulfil their childhood dream of opening a library in Guernsey.

The tour will take in the whole building, including the brand new Children's Library and areas not normally open to the public, as Mr Pitts tells stories from the Library's long history, from its earliest days in the 19th Century through the Great War and the Occupation to the present day.

These tours are free, but booking is essential. Book your ticket HERE
