Living History Tour of the Library

Living History Tour of the Library

Thursday 25 April, 18.00 - 19.00

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

On Thursday 25 April our original Curator John Linwood Pitts will lead a guided tour 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.
