Family History Library

Family History library

Join us at the library for the unveiling of the new discovery experiences on its main floor. It is four times as big as the Discovery Center in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building and includes even more experiences. With touch screen monitors and computers, individuals and families can learn about their unique identity, create their personal story, and explore family roots in exciting, interactive ways. The main floor is designed for discovery activities, and the other library floors remain available for research and assistance.

The Family History Library is offering extended hours on the Saturday of RootsTech.
