Church History Library Remodel: Finished.

An announcement from our friends at the Church History Library in Salt Lake City. The library has been closed to the public for 4 months while the main floor underwent important architectural-functional changes. The new facility promises to be helpful to scholars and interested Church members alike.


The Church History Library is excited to announce that we have reopened to the public after four months of renovations. We’re looking forward to welcoming you back and helping you with your research needs.

When you return, you’ll notice some changes to our reference area, the reading room, and the addition of a new instruction area for presentations and classes. Speaking of presentations, we’ve added new options. Check them out and schedule one for a group here.

Many will be excited to hear that cameras and phones are now allowed in the reading room for note taking purposes.

The Library’s hours have changed slightly, so please take note when planning a visit.

Monday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Tuesday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Wednesday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Thursday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. (I find this feature particularly helpful)
Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sunday Closed

  1. Nice! What are the rules on cameras/phones?

  2. My guess is that copying stuff works like it always did, but for things that are judged to be reproducible, you can do it with your own equipment. Very cool when you are allowed. Maybe Keith is watching and will chime in.

  3. Kevin Barney says:

    Not that it matters to me, but is the reopen effective this coming Monday, I assume?

  4. Kev, I think they opened on the 21st.

  5. Wish they’d renovate my local meeting house. The problems in this 60+-year-old building(particularly the plumbing) are endless. But the only thing I’m allowed when it comes to HVAC’s that don’t work, toilets that overflow, and walls that desperately need paint is… Gratitude!! If I could only be more thankful for what the Lord has provided, I wouldn’t see any of these issues as problems. Once again _I_ lack the proper attitude.

    SLC and Utah Valley get all the $$$ for renovations.

  6. I was waiting for this to turn into a parody the whole time for some reason.
