Our new Children's Library is now open

Living History tour of the Library

Living History tour of the Library

Tour the Library with one of our original staff!

During Libraries Week on Tuesday 9 & Thursday 11 October, 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 boyhood dream of opening a library in Guernsey.

The tour will take in the whole building, including 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 up to the present day.

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

*PLEASE NOTE* the Thursday tour is now sold out. Tickets still available for Tuesday.
