Church History Library Events and Exhibits

In order to protect our patrons, employees, and missionaries and comply with recommendations of local government, the Church History Library is closed to the public until further notice.

Learn about Church history from our staff through presentations and exhibits at the library and at conferences around the world.

Ongoing Exhibit

The items in this exhibit are priceless foundational records from the Church’s history that document its Restoration and growth throughout the earth. Among the records you will see here are early editions of modern scripture, personal records of modern prophets, and evidence of key developments in Church doctrine and organization.
