Saturday Opening

During 2023 Lambeth Palace Library will be open on one Saturday a month. If there proves to be sufficient demand, Saturday opening once a month will become a permanent feature of the Library’s opening hours. All material for use on a Saturday must be ordered at least 48 hrs in advance, as no orders can be taken on the day. The reading room will be open 10am-5pm. The public exhibitions will also be open on these Saturdays, 10am-5pm.

Lambeth Palace Library has released the first video on its new Youtube Channel. Dr Sarah Griffin, Assistant Archivist, looks at illuminated images in one of the Library’s medieval manuscripts (MS 522), and how their reflective, golden surfaces respond to light.
