The St Albans Cathedral Library is a modern theological lending library, containing books on theology, biblical studies, spirituality, philosophy, and ethics, among other disciplines. It also houses a local collection and resources on Abbey history.
In our new location, we are trying to keep the library open as much as we can, please see Opening Hours for details.
We are endeavouring to make books as easy to access as possible, but some may need retrieving from storage, and will be indcated as such on the catalogue. Please email (using this form) or phone to request these, and we shall endeavour to get them for you within a week. We're trying to do everything that we can to make the collection as easily accessible as possible, but please feel free to call us on 01727 890222 if you have specific requests before coming in.
To find the library:
Enter the Cathedral through Sumpter Yard (off Holywell Hill) and at the cedar tree follow the path down to the left. The Deanery is the building directly ahead. Entry is through the large wooden door around the right-hand side of the building. Please ring the bell, and a library volunteer will let you in and show you to the library, which is housed in the Lawrance Room.
If you have any questions, please call the library on 01727 890222, or email the Adult Learning Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org.
