Historic Libraries


At St Omers, the College had two prestigious libraries as well as large collections of music scores and playscripts. While only a small part of the original library collections was salvaged when the school moved to England following the French Revolution in 1794, the libraries were rapidly rebuilt in the 19th century.

Today these rare and important collections are housed in the three Historic Libraries at Stonyhurst: The Arundell Library, The Bay Library and The Square Library.
