Church History Library

This site has more information on the Church History Library.

Our Facility

The current Church History Library building was completed in 2009. It is a state-of-the-art facility designed to house the records of the Church in a way that will preserve them for future generations for hundreds of years to come. The library provides archival storage and public access for materials that chronicle the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1830 to the present day. It has 10 main storage rooms that are kept at 55 degrees Fahrenheit, with 35 percent relative humidity. Two special rooms are kept at -4 degrees Fahrenheit for color motion picture films, photographs, and records of special significance. The building contains 230,000 square feet on five floors.

A time capsule was placed in the building when construction was completed. The items inside provide a snapshot of the Church at that point in history.

Patriarchal Blessings

TWO new online tools have been created and released to facilitate submitting, gathering, preserving, and sharing patriarchal blessings. A new online submission tool helps leaders create patriarchal blessing recommends and submit the official blessings to the Church, and a new online request tool allows members to request a digital copy of their own blessing and then view the copy online. Both tools are accessible via LDS Account login on a new landing page at LDS.org.

You may request copies of patriarchal blessings in three ways:

  •  Online: Go to LDS.org. In the top right corner of the screen, click My Account and Ward, and then select Patriarchal Blessing. In the new window, click Get Started and then sign in to your LDS Account or friend account. Follow the instructions on the left to verify personal information. To request a blessing, click the personal request icon or the ancestral request icon, and provide all of the required information. Upon verification by library staff, personal blessings will be delivered online via your LDS Account, and ancestral blessings will be sent via postal mail. Internet Explorer is not a supported web browser.
  •  By Mail: Mail your request containing the above information to the Church History Library. Responses will be mailed through the postal service to the return address provided.
