Behind the Scenes in the Library

A special monthly opportunity to visit Ushaw College’s celebrated historic Library, which is usually closed to the public. You will to learn something of the history of the Library and its relationship to the College, and view some of the treasures of its early printed book collections, which date from the 15th century onwards and cover a wide range of subjects, from all aspects of religious and spiritual life to science, history, travel, literature and the arts. Some of the books are very rare; almost all have fascinating histories. 

A member of Durham University Library’s team of cataloguers, working on the Ushaw Library project, will lead the group and introduce a display of items reflecting the wealth and depth of the collections, as well as their own particular interests and expertise; a different selection of books will thus be displayed on each monthly visit.

Visitors please be aware that the library is accessed via a flight of stairs.

Library tours will run on the last Saturday of each month, at 2pm
