Icelandic Heritage Library

Our library has now been moved to the Iceland Room and to the communal library of the SCC. Books in English are held in both locations in the Centre while books in Icelandic or specifically related to genealogy are located in the Iceland Room.

The collection consists of books and publications from numerous Icelandic community and personal libraries of the past as well as new publications.

We thank all those who have contributed to this wonderful library so that others may enjoy and learn from the collection.
