Church History


Visit the Library

Visitors come to the Church History Library for a number of reasons. Scholars and researchers visit the library to conduct research on topics related to the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Other visitors are interested in using our collections to do personal or family history work or to assist them in their Church responsibilities. Visitors may also come to participate in Programs and Events hosted at the Church History Library. For those new to the library, we encourage first time visitors to watch our online Orientation Video and then register to access library materials before arriving.

For visitors visiting from out-of-town, be sure to check out Parking Options as well as Attractions and Events in the downtown Salt Lake City area.

We want your visit to be as productive and enjoyable as possible. Please be aware that there are certain Rules of Conduct to follow when visiting. If you are engaged in research and will be using our secure stacks materials, you also will want to familiarize yourself with the Reading Room Policies.

Don't forget to check our Hours and Admission page before you come so you're not surprised by any holiday closures.

If you have any questions, please Contact Us.
