Missionaries return to the Brigham Young University Family History Library


The Brigham Young University Family History Library, (BYU) the second largest family history library in the world, is reopening with its staff of missionaries and volunteers on July 21st, 2021. During the pandemic, the missionary/volunteers at the library have been working entirely online. For some time now, the library has been open to students and staff of the university, but the general public has remained excluded. The reopening of the library will have the missionary/volunteer support available Monday through Friday from 10:00 am until 8:00 pm. These hours will be expanded as new missionaries and volunteers are added. 

The missionary/volunteer staff of the library is composed both of official Church Service Missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and other individuals who serve as volunteers. Because the Family History Library is part of the Harold B. Lee Library of Brigham Young University, there is also a professional staff and student employees to help in the Library during the time it is open. The Harold B. Lee Library is usually open from 7:00 am until midnight Monday through Friday. The schedule of the Library changes with the academic calendar, holidays, and at other times during the year. Here is the link to the Library schedule: https://lib.byu.edu/about/hours/

The missionaries and volunteers at the BYU Family History Library are going to continue with their online support effort allowing people from all over the world to directly contact and receive support. Here is the BYU Family History Library’s web page where you can get updated information about the Library’s services.
