Welcome to the blog of Lambeth Palace Library. Founded in 1610, Lambeth Palace Library is the historic library and record office of the Archbishops of Canterbury and the principal repository of the documentary history of the Church of England. James I described it as ‘a monument of fame’ in his kingdom – hence the name of the blog. We will use this blog to announce any special events happening within the Library, to alert our readers to changes in service and to share information about our collections. We welcome your comments and hope that you enjoy reading our blog.
