Everything Else

Records from the LDS Church dating back to an 1830 copy of the Book of Mormon will be a part of the Treasures of the Collections open house at the Church History Library from Thursday, Sept. 27, to Thursday, Oct. 11.

The event occurs around the general conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints each October and April. The upcoming theme, "Record Keeping in the Kingdom," encompasses entries from church historians throughout the years, including the actual letter that Willard Richards wrote only hours after the martyrdom of Joseph and Hyrum Smith to the Saints in Nauvoo. The Church History Library will be open Monday to Wednesday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Thursday to Saturday from 10 a.m.-9 p.m.
